Which floor plan? There were 4 Journey models in 2010. The models with Cummins engines made before January 2010 had basement air. Models made with later engines have roof a/c and a DEF tank in the space where the basement air had been. I have a short 34 foot Journey Express (34Y) we bought in 2012. We love the floor plan. It was built in September of 09, therefore it has basement air. We are happy with the basement air although it has not been trouble free. We had to replace a fan motor a few months ago. The a/c is adequate in our coach. But it may not be adequate in a larger coach.
If you do buy the coach, I suggest that you also buy an extended warranty. We bought one for $5000 and so far they have paid out $8000 so I'm glad I have it. Most of the repair cost was due to a broken fan support bracket on the engine.

We have the basement heat pump/air conditioner, and it's still working after 12 years. Had it checked last Summer and no problems.

Another point. If the tires have not been replaced, get the seller to pay for new ones. Mine are getting replaced on Friday. One tire has severe sidewall cracks. The others are okay, but they're getting replaced too.
