Going to look @ a class A cruise master

The subject says it all. Sorry don't have the year( it looks older though), only know it has less that 30,000 miles on it ( so they say), from the pictures it looks well maintained. My questions are how many miles can I expect to put on it, would you happen to know the engine manufacturer of it, is it reasonably easy to find parts for in the event that it dies, it doesn't become a roadside condo. Anyone have any idea the mpg one could expect to get from it. It's 28' long that's about it.
I appreciate your comments.........

Cruise Master is a model of Georgie Boy Mfg. and was available over a several year period. GeorgieBoy was bought by Coachmen in the early 90's but maintained it's separate identity and facilities for several years.
I had a 1990 30 foot CruiseMaster on the Oshkosh Chassis. (John Deere/Oshkosh now Freightliner) -Excellent MH, Ford 460 engine. 6-7mpg
CruiseMaster was mid-line of the GeorgieBoy vehicles. At 28 feet, your prospect is likely on a gas chassis, could be Oshkosh, Ford or Chevy. Many changes over the years, you need specifics for the unit to actually pin down what to expect.

Spec sheets for 2000 models will give you some idea of the chassis and standard and optional equipment. Georgie Boy: Cruise Master

Owners Manuals for a number of years of GeorgieBoy (and Coachmen)) products are here: Owners Manuals - Coachmen RV
Just enter the year in the search box..

hope this helps and keep us posted.

The 460 is a Ford engine.

Ford engine, C6 non-OD trans, most likely on a John-Deere chassis. Some parts are hard to find for that chassis, but most are still available through Freightliner.

About the same as the 1990 Cruise Master I had. phatpony is correct.
That 460 is carburated, big 4bbl. Exhaust manifolds tend to warp, but good headers available and later versions of the Ford manifold were more durable.
An older rig, need to check the rubber roof, tires and running gear. Old Leaks can lead to major problems.

Found some photos of an 88 you might find useful.
