Interested in buying a Starflyte by Coachmen

Anyone have any info on this? Reliability, tongue hitch weight would be important. I want to hang a dirt bike off the back on a rack. The e350 chassis can obviously handle it but I don't know if coachmen did any modifications that limit the tongue weight. The hitch on it says 350 lbs hitch weight, can that be upgraded? I dunno what or if coachmen added a weak extension in there or if it's just a cheap hitch. One of my dirt bikes is a ktm 625 sxc and about 315 with fuel, and a rack of 37, 40 lbs. cutting it close. Thanks .

Any starflyte related issues?

I do have a 1998 Starflyte on e350 Ford chassis V-10. I have no complaints, it is the length I need, the way it was built is high quality, padded ceiling, ducted AC. Lots of power, purchased up in western NY, and drove 1600 miles to South Florida. what a beauty. What year is the one you're looking at.

Got starflyte on its maiden voyage..works well, need to change the diff fluid, couple other knick knacks.. I re sealed all silicon seals, new vent, sealed bathroom, added inverter, solar.

Need to do some basic rv stuff...maximize use of storage. I want to store a recliner chair that folds up to about a cylinder of 8 inches by 4 ft, thinking of mounting it near spare table by the door. Also need a place to hold quietly a tool box too big to put in outside storage. (And wouldn't want to, easier to steal from) also a small dirt bike stand.

Any suggestions on dividers for cabinets, etc would be great.
