2004 National Sea Breeze

Hi I am looking at a 2004 National Sea Breeze with a Ford V10. I was wondering what the reviews from owners or past owners of the rigs?
Thanks Steve

I have a 2007 with the V-10 no complaints. National you will find built a great coach, take a close look at the work very well put together. The only downer with a 2004 is it won't have the newer transmission which I believe came out in 2005.

We have a 2005 Sea Breeze on a workhorse chassis and love it. Quality, quality,quality. Do your self a favor and check other coaches and see for yourself how well made they. Good luck.

We were fulltimers in an early Triton V-10 powered coach and have high praise for the Ford chassis and the Ford motorhome support hotline. We owned ours for 14 years and 80K miles and in that time we had to have a pinion seal replaced in the Dana rear-end, had a cracked transmission support frame member welded up, replaced the coolant recovery reservoir, and that it all other then the routine maintenance and tires.
Good Travelin! Kirk

I have a 2003 that I bought 2 1/2 years ago with the V10 and now it has 50865 miles on it. In my opinion they are a great built coach. I have had some problems (front roof A/C replaced, and refrigerator cooling unit went out so replaced with a residential) but I still wouldn't hesitate to buy another one of the National models. That being said mine is for sale!!! Actually, we are wanting to down size but truly love the Sea Breeze. Only thing I can tell you is to be careful what you pay for a 2004 because we have tried to trade ours and all the dealers we have dealt with only wanted to allow about half of what the unit is worth on trade! Like the above posts have already mentioned just make sure you check everything out good. Good Luck and Happy RVing!

Semper Fi, Steve

I have a 2005 Sea Breeze purchased three months ago. It has the Ford 310hp V-10.
I had a class C some years ago with the older V-10. This one is super. As far as the National goes, It is a better unit than the class A Winnebago I had until I was dumb enough to think I could live with a b-plus with 2 slides. No way,I lost my shirt getting back into an A. I have high praise for this National. Jerry

Have an older National with the v-10. The engine is a good one so you needn't worry about the power plant.
