Like your Discovery, The 2006 Astoria 3679 is of the Holy Grail style Class "A" - It's a DSDP - Double Slide Diesel Pusher so it should not be confused with the economy level Damon Daybreak or Hurricane.
To all the Daybreak and Hurricane owners - please don't flame me...these are great rigs too, but like my Outlaw, they are not DSDP's and therefore don't cost as much to keep on the road - right?
And, like the Discovery, the Astoria is not on a bus chassis - but still a very strong Diesel Pusher design, so you're not gonna pay a Prevost price.
In 2006, Damon was using neutral colors inside and out, but fullbody paint was rare. It had a very nice full corner shower and all the modern stuff...except flat screen and/or HD TV's...that came to Damon in 2007 and 2008.
The appliances, systems, plumbing, leveling jacks, etc, were from high quality vendors and 2006 is only 7 years ago, so the rig might be in very good shape.
My opinion is that it coud be a very nice rig, but we all should be smart shoppers...check it over the best you can and best of luck!
