New Owner 98 36SDS - Does this look OEM?

Picking up the coach next week. Haven't even actually seen it in person, so I hope its as good as it looks in the pics.

So my pic question, is can someone look at a couple pics and tell me if the radio installed and flooring is OEM or has it been messed with. Also couch doesn't look like what I've seen in the brochure.

Randy,

You are right in both cases. I have carpet that runs from the front to tile in the kitchen.

What about the radio? Looks to be a touch newer than was available in 98. Lets hope the backup camera has been replaced and that its run through that head unit.

Randy,
The radio has been replaced.
The OEM black and white back up camera was wired into the over head television. Only worked if the generator or inverter and the tv were on.

I rewired mine into the 7" color GPS display installed by a previous owner. Black and white camera with color screen was not great.

Next I installed a wireless color camera with a dedicated color display.Works, but not great and too much clutter on the dash.
Would like to have a single screen for both back up and GPS. The ones I have seen are expensive and get mixed reviews.

Would like to hear about hours works after you get the coach.

Welcome aboard the forum.

Randy,

As Gene said, the radio has been replaced.

Do you have the other two chairs for the dining table?
Does the unit have a separate CD player that is controlled by the radio?

The previous owner of my unit replaced the B/W camera with a color camera that still used the analog TV. The PO added a digital tuner.

I don't believe the other two chairs are there.

Also its missing the swivel chair. not sure what to put in its place. May put a "murphy" desk on the wall there.
I have not seen this coach in person yet. I have dealt with the dealer before and most of their coaches are in very good shape.

I only have a deposit to hold it until I get home from work next week to look at it.

Hopefully its a good one.

Randy
