While those generator hours are higher than average, I personally would rather have a generator that has been worked rather than one with very low hours, particularly in a 95. It may be that whoever owned it did a lot of boondocking which would account for the high hours. At any rate, 1500 hours on an Onan is nothing to worry about. Mine had 1100 hours when I sold my 95 and was working fine. The only thing I ever replaced on the generator was the starter.

HR did have a 34 foot version and it also had a tag. My DW's uncle owned one. It was exactly like my 36, but you lose the two closets in the bedroom at the foot of the bed.

The walk-thru bath was what sold us on our HR and in fact the bathroom was the primary factory in purchasing our Sportscoach. I hate the "head in the closet". Our Sportscoach has a side bath that is rather large, so while we gave up the walk-thru in the HR, we still have a decent bath.

They did also build the HRs on Chevy P30 chassis' as I've seen a few. They have larger wheels (19 versus 16). The P30 chassis does not drive as well as the F53 (I've owned both).

As far as turning radius, I could turn my HR around with the Jeep attached in my cul-de-sac if I hit it "just right". It's noteable that I can turn my 40 foot Freightliner XC in a shorter turning radius. I think it's the 55 degree wheel cut.

Oh, and I never had any problem with the HWH jacks, they had the ability to lift the entire motorhome off the ground. You don't want to do that. Also, mine fully loaded weighed in around 18,000 pounds on the CAT scale.
