Mike,

There is one down in Cottage grove OR. I went and looked at it. If I guy could get it for a good price it would probably make a nice coach for someone. It is dirty, needs windshields, tires and some general maintenance.

Her price was 45k when i looked at it. Its been for sale, for a few months.

If you have some specific questions, I'll give you my number and let you know what I saw.

John,
We did see this one and it is a little older than what he is looking for.
Thanks Mike

You probably already know this, but some of the "landmark" changes were:

Fit and finish evolved very quickly from good 5th wheel quality to high end motorhome quality in the early 2000's.

Going from the C with exhaust brake to L engine with two stage engine compression brake-- started as an option, then because standard equipment. The L offered more HP and a lot more torque with little/no increase in fuel consumption (if driven the same!). And, the engine compression brake (aka Jake brake) offers a lot more braking HP.

Pre-Vansco or with Vansco multiplex electrical system. Probably subject to debate, but my strong preference was for a PRE-Vansco coach.

My other personal "must" was a non-galley slide with its associated plumbing issues and significant left/right weight imbalance.

The 2003 met all those requirements.

Found a 36 and my friend has made a verbal agreement on a purchase price. We are going to fly in and take a look at it. If it looks as good in person as it does in the pictures we'll be driving it back to Washington St.
Want to thank everyone for there help. Really appreciate it.
M.K..

Mike,

If it doesn't work out let me know, my wife and I just returned home from a month long trip to N. Calif & Oregon and as we were living in the RV for that length of time we talked about going from our 36 to a 40 ft. We ran into Janet and Todd and got to see their 40FDQS and really liked having the extra space. We also would like to have a king bed and some other upgrades.

Ours is a 2004 36FDDS, with the 350HP engine. It's got 68K miles and we just had both windshields replaced while in Eugene, OR. We had the seal replaced on the big slide up front before our trip and in June we replaced all four hoses to the bedroom slide re-routing them away from the transmission cooler as recommended. We would like to get $74K for it. We are in Denver.

Tom,
Thanks for heads up about your coach and will let you know if the sale doesn't go through. A 2004 with a 350hp motor is very unusual.
Thanks Mike
