A 24.5 low pro tire is the same height as a 22.5 high profile tire! It will change the speedometer about 5 to 7 mph, in the difference in height from low pro 22.5 to low pro 24.5! The last owner may have wanted to drop his rpm's a bit at driving speeds? Maybe he just liked the bigger rim?
As far as the difference between a Coachmen Destiny and a American Eagle, difference is Med End for the Destiny, High end for the Eagle! Not wanting to step on any toes, but, you will see, very quickly, the differences! 3 years difference in age will not mean much! Impressive service records, mean a lot! As the others have said, the biggest thing is water intrusion, so look very closely! Have fun! There are many to chose from! Let us know? Rail!
Thank you so much Rail... I am seriously leaning towards American Eagle. Both have 8.3 Cummins, the owner of the American Eagle says its a 5 speed Allison but all info I could find says it should be a 6 speed...
