Smile 2001 Safari Panther 425 41'

Am considering purchase of what appears to be a immaculately maintained Panther with 65k miles.
I can't find much detailed information about the coach and its Magnum chassis.
Many features appear to be ahead of its day.

I wonder about long term maintenance of the electrical and chassis systems.

Anyone have experience with this vintage coach.

When we were shopping for a MH we looked hard at a 1999 year of this same model. I recommend you join the Yahoo Safari owners group and do some research about this specific make/model. We passed on buying the 1999 because of a severe water leak above the entry door that had stained the wall from ceiling to floor, otherwise it was a great MH, with solid Cherry wood throughout.
The Magnum chassis is a commercial bus chassis. Most are on rubber suspension mounts, no longer available, designed to last well over 500,000 miles. Some have air bags, which are a common item.

Bob, I finally realized I forgot to include a link to the Yahoo Safari Friends Owners Group:https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Safarifriends/info
When the webpage opens you'll see the first entry is about a 2001 Safari Panther 425, 41' MH.
