I am ready to purchase a Class C which will get about 10,000 miles a year. We are a family of 6 and really want to teach our kids the nations history.
I've owned many class C's before, mainly Toyota Sunraders and Toyota Motorhomes. Recently I got a bug and started to convert a 1972 AVCO. Its a rare bird, all fiberglass and because of that very dry inside. I was going to convert it to a 6bt / NV4500 Diesel and possibly put a 2 speed rear end in it.
My wife was ok with that, but after looking and researching the Jayco Seneca 36FS Bunkhouse with the Duramax Diesel, I couldn't pick up the wrench any more. There is so much room with the slide out option and the AVCO... which was well ahead of its time isn't going to do this.
I want to go Class C - 2 in the over head bunk and two in the bunks. This way we won't have to remake beds every day. Its either the Jayco Seneca 36FS or a brand new 2009 Gulf Stream Super Max Silver Bullet. I found this on ebay.
I have it waiting for me in Kentuky and I will likely get it, however another member here said I should reach out to this forum and see if there is anything wrong with this coach. I think Keiths advice is wise.

WOW09 SUPER C MAX SILVER BULLET DIESEL RV BUNKHOUSE: eBay Motors (item 290492932971 end time Oct-31-10 13:50:49 PDT)
The auction is ended and it is not for sale, the dealer is holding it for me.
There is very little about this coach out there. Gulf stream has a brochure for the 2010 model and after talking with a sales rep at Gulf Stream, he said they only made 20 of these units. http://www.conquestmotorhomes.com/

It comes with an ISB Cummins 305hp diesel engine with a Dodge 5500 truck chassis. Gulf stream says it can get up to 16mph. However the interior is what appeals to me. The bunkhouse model.
I really don't know much about this particular unit and hope some of you may. I really appreciate any discussion good or bad on the route I'm going.
Sorry for the long post! An please move this thread to the appropriate area if I posted in the wrong spot
