Dukenrock - Very nice! Why the stacker trailer? Do you race or is it just for a driver? I don't get the vending supplies either... I saw one of these in Mission Bay. HUGE was the only way I could describe it! The lady said it was around $400K-is that number out of line or correct? I was a great rig. Here's a pic.

Congratulations. Enjoy your trip home, and be safe. As soon as you can, plenty more pics with some interior ones would be much appreciated.

Big Baron,

I use it for personal as well as some business. My wife and I sell motorcycle apparel at the the larger motorcycle events and we have a Nascar style tent that attaches to our trailer. We set up a store under the tent. We get to travel all over and meet some great people while we are working.

I flew out to look at the 2009 Silver Crown today. Extremely disappointed at first. The coach was not sparkling clean as I expected. Issues I found:

All blinds are powered by a remote control...3 blinds not functioning.

AC outlet under bed has a dead short. It's on a dedicated circuit for the King Air mattress

Front thermostat controls 2 AC units. When the switch is on high they run low and visa versa

Cracked windshield on drivers side...needs replaced

One drawer in kitchen needs slides replaced...won't latch

Leveling jack issue. Alarm goes off even though the panel shows jacks up. I believe it's a sensor on the right rear jack not functioning as it should.

Rear bumper damage...nothing major easily repairable along with a scratch on the drivers side fender

Carpeting in cockpit needs steam cleaned

Slight wear on drivers side seat

Even though the coach is a 2009, the date code for the rear tires were 2006. They looked great but should probably be replaced

Coach had 70,000 miles, not 59,000 as he told me

I would have the entire coach professionally buffed and waxed

The coach ran great and the transmission shifting was odd at first but I quickly grew to like it! You hold your foot down on the gas pedal and it shifts by itself like a manual transmission! New filters, oil change etc. All 12 batteries brand new. (4 chassis 9 AGM house)

Before I came out I told the owner I was going to be picky and go through everything and he was OK showing me the coach the way it was. I was going to walk away from the deal but decided it's all superficial and everything can be fixed easily. I offered him 30K less than initially agreed on to repair everything (And things I possibly didn't see). I will know tomorrow if he takes the deal. If he does I will feel good about getting the coach up to snuff. If not I will just keep looking!

Congratulations! Glad you got it with an adjusted price. My rig has an "Equalizer Systems" leveling setup. There is a switch that presses in when the plate is all the way up/retracted. When I got mine two of the switches were bad. I called the company and she said they had changed the style and I bought four new switches and haven't had a problem since. Hopefully it's just a minor switch like that.

We checked the switch, it's good and the "plunger" touches the plate properly. I'm sure it's minor. I haven't been in it at all today. Gonna pick up tonight. I'm wondering if it could need a bit if fluid because yesterday he replaced a damage hydraulic hose. Maybe it needed additional bleeding and the fluid level is low. The jacks up light does stay on though which I thought should go off with a low fluid situation which reflects a jack down.
We agreed I'd take it home like it is and he will pay for any repairs if needed. Not really worried about it.....

You can fix a lot of things with the $30K you saved!

It looks like something that would make an owner proud!
