Welcome, wfederle to irv2.
I had a 98 Newmar model 3765 with the large kitchen slide and dinette across from slide. Cut an access under dinette for small storage cabinet with door.
1/3 of space not used by pull out draw.
The Ford chassis carried the coach ok but low on chassis. Went to a spring shop and had them level and bring up chassis about 3" for a better ride and put on myself Bilstein shocks with Davis tru track front end.
Before a trip across Canada and USA had the Banks sys and Trans-command installed it was great in the mountains out west Ford had plenty of power with the v-10.
Didn't have any problems with steering Davis kept front steering true. I did have front end alined after spring install.
Had good mileage on trip 7-7.5 which is good for a coach of that weight. Got top dollar on trade for a Newmar MA. Just make sure dealer follows up on what he said before handing over check. Check under the coach for the things I have mentioned its a plus for you.
Good luck and we will welcome you
to the Newmar forum in the future.
