Looking at a CC sportscoach

Hi all; The Boss and I have been looking at a 2005 Sports coach and was wondering if anybody knows about them. Its 39 feet with only 21500 miles. Is that good or bad? Everything looks like new and I am going to take it for a drive this weekend. What do I need to watch out for. Has a 300 Cummins with 600 foot pounds of torque.
Wife and I both like it but I don't know much about Diesels, always had Gas before.

Thanks in advance for any help.

600 for torque seems very low. Don't know much about that model, sorry. CC is a fine manufacturer.

The motor in question is most likely a ISB 5.9

Don't know anything about Cross Country coaches

I see, the ISB is a lower level engine than the ISC models.

Motorhomes - Coachmen RV

Coachmen is the manufacturer. Not sure how Country Coach is derived from Cross Country coach.

600 ft lbs of Torque could be ok if the rig weighs about 24000 lbs or so. All diesels will get up the hill.

It might say "Country Coach" but it isn't. For one thing,Country Coach never made a '05 coach with a 300hp, 600ftlb torque motor
