I know these feelings and honestly would not be willing to give them up.

Manuals? If you could find them, ordered via phone, waited 1-2 weeks for them to arrive. Now most are available online in pdf files.
Advice: almost too much now. Zero before, unless you knew someone.
I would never have bought a DP, without Internet backup.
Well you do have an excellent point about having the internet now to find parts, advice, and ordering. I'm with you. Back in the day before the internet, I can't imagine having this behemoth and keeping it healthy.

This past summer I started a major project on our 2000 Georgie Boy Cruise Master... new roof and passenger side wall repair... many many hours doing research for materials and techniques... ended up removing the passenger side wall from the front cap to the entry door and rebuilding it... had installed an add a leaf spring to the right rear... Firestone air bags front and rear... was a huge project... but then.... the joy, satisfaction, reward and excitement of driving it 1800 miles to South Florida for vacation with my wife and children is indescribable to almost anyone...
