We just bought a 1993 CC Magna woth 146,000 on it. It was well taken care of but we have had our troubles. Finding part has also been hard, but we have been able to find them. We were lucky to have a good friend that had been an RV teck for 13 years and he helped us thru all the fixes. 32,000 is way to much to pay for it, we got ours for 18,500 and it is very nice inside and had a new paint job on the outside a few years ago. We do love our coach and hope to keep it for a long time. It was built to last. Good luck with yours!

After 42 years in the machine business, printing machines not motor homes, I can tell you that past 10 years old condition is more important than age. Same is true for motor homes.

Since the smoke abated when you replaced the air filter it is likely that you were running too rich. Same thing happens when the turbo is not running right or at all. You run rich and you get black smoke.

We have been to Quartsite several times with our Country Coach Affinity. We have boon docked each time. The roads getting to the BDock site was loose gravel and pretty big hill, holes, bumps and so on. Our coach made it fine. A couple who blog a lot mostly boon dock in their 40 ft DP. You can read about their adventures on wheelingit at blogspot

We've had our coach 13 years now and have about 157,000 miles on it--will add another 5,000 over the next month--heading up to CC and some other things. We have no smoke out of the engine, except on a cold start. Some things we have replaced: All three roof ACs, engine muffler (available from Gillig--put it on myself), front curtain, toilet, just to hit some highlights. The biggest appearance issue is the clear coat peeling--very common in those years. Engine runs like a swiss watch! We had two blow-outs on inside tires, and the only time we got stuck is when the hydraulic hose busted. Interesting to drive a 17-ton coach with no power steering! Got it replaced in Phoenix Cat dealer. Considering the age, I think we are doing great. Planning on replacing it with the next year with a newer CC.
