Welcome to iRV2.com and congrats on a nice looking Dolphin.
They are well built coaches and lots of them are out there, still looking good.
I surely don't intend to cause you unnecessary concern, but I do want to offer some info that "may" save you some grief in the future:
that is VERY low mileage for a 10 model year old coach, and lack of use can cause a variety of problems. Did you get any maint. records? ALL the fluids may need to be changed. If not already done, REPLACE all 6 tires ASAP if they are OE. If not original, then have a competent tire shop inspect them and determine their age via the DOT date code.
I can see from the pictures it is on a Workhorse chassis, most likely a W-22. ALL of those chassis were subject to a recall to replace defective Bosch brake calipers. You need to VERIFY if this recall was completed. Lots of info is available here on iRV2 in the Workhorse forum, so look around down there when you have time / questions.
Lastly, be aware that the chassis most likely has a GVWR of 22,000 pounds and a GCVWR of 26,000 pounds. This means the coach, as loaded for travel, (including people) AND the total weight being towed should not exceed 26K.
Let us know if you have any questions, and ENJOY your new family toy !
