I just talked to the owners other son and got some new information on the Cruisemaster.

They full-timed in the MH from 1999-2005. Since then it has run around 200 miles per year.

It has a 454 engine.

The transmission was re-built in 2004. Turned out problem was not the transmission, but some other problem. Problem was fixed.

There was some modification added to help with the steering.

They weighed it fully loaded, including passengers: 17,500lbs. That seems really high, either he remembered wrong or it was really overloaded.

He didn't know where the service records were, but knew they existed somewhere. I told him I wouldn't go any further on this unless they found them.

We owned a Georgie Boy about that length (and close to that year).It was a nice coach as far as lay-out, floor plan, ammenities, etc. However, mechanically we did not like it and the brakes were inadequate for the size and weight of the coach. Didn't feel safe in it on steep down-grades. It did not have a tag axle. Didn't own it long (bought it new). We traded it for a 34' Monaco Windsor DP. All the difference in the world!!

Since that model does not have a tag axle, GVWR for a P-30 should be 16,000 lbs. According to my Calculations they have been running it 1500 lbs over limit.
That alone could cause unforeseen issues to arise.

If the seller is not able to produce service records, or a shop where you could go and get copies of the maintenance history, they may be hiding known issues from you.

Thanks for all the help on this. We told the lady we were not interested in buying- everyone's advice made this an easier decision.
