Looks a lot like our first DSDP a 2000 3865. Check you front axle weight, it may be awfully close to maxed out.

Thanks will do, plan on taking it into a truck shop for some maintenance so I have a baseline to start with. I should be able to weigh axles and total weight then.

Vancouver, WA? We have good friends that live in La Center we actually hope to take the coach out there this summer or next! Small world.

I love the Dutch Stars of that ere. I couldn't find one but did find a Holiday Rambler, 1998. Same mileage as yours and engineer-detailed service records. I too believe these diesel pushers, when properly maintained are one of the best deals and value in RV'ing today.
Congratulations and may warm skies welcome you very soon!

Congrats and welcome! We just purchased a 2000 DSDP in January. It has been meticulously cared for and only 65k miles. We still have to work (for another 3 years and 11 months, but I am not counting yet!), so we are looking forward to our first trip this summer. Enjoy and happy travels!
