Nice looking MH -- we had a 1999 Discovery and never had an issue with the MH other than the 275hp engine being under-powered pulling a 5K toad in the mountains. Looks like you got a well taken care of unit!

5k toad

Chiefjohn that is a heavy toad i think that would slow it down. My toad (boat) is about 3k plus i have the discovery on a strict diet, nothing i dont need. i'm just a boondocking fisherman it works well for me. going from a gas coach to this it fells like lots of power
