A 39 ft tag axle seems unusual also.
I bought mine with 178k on it and it was 13 years old. Nerve wracking yes but one of the best buys I ever made!

I have 82k on my 06.

But I am going to take another angle to the question asked too. When it comes to transsynd my manual for the Allison 1000 says change fluid every 150k, 48 months, or 4000 hours.

I think most RVs will fall into the 48 month category before driving 150k and will need to change the fluid every 48 months. Actually the manual goes on to say the the correct fluid change interval should be determined by having the fluid tested and analyzed for contamination.

DVO, we looked at the '92 Prevost yesterday for grines. It was still a beautiful coach. A few things showed age such as the drivers seat was not so comfortable anymore after the 188K, but all-in-all still pretty awesome coach. Suspect maintenance would be significant and one never knows about all the running gear, yet possibly a bargain for one who can do most maintenace themselves. If you want to look at pics, it is here...

Thumbs up My two cents worth

My 97 Allegro 28' 62K, runs good most of the time gets a little hot on some hills though so I take it easy and give it a rest when I can. I sometimes wonder about how well it is doing mostly because I am a nervous Nelly.

Wow, it's awesome for some of you to have that many miles on your rigs and still going strong. Noticed that majority are pushers which is what it should be since I've read that they're built to ran. I have a gasser and since we're not retired yet, I've only got 20K on mine.

Good job maintaining those high mileage machines my fellow RV'ers!!!!

I'd love to see a picture of your rig.
