Soon to be new owner of 2001 7370 LTC

Would like to hear from any other people on this coach and what to look "out" for. I am a single male 46 and bought it for pulling my restored Jeepster Commands to events and Moab.

Any help on increasing the hitch rating? What did you do to make it over 5k?

I have read different things and it says the LTC has extras radiator on the side. Different front cap and improved chassis.

This one has a closet slide in rear , dinette/couch slide in the front with service center and I love the toilet in it's own room. I could not find another model that was as nice as these. Fleetwood discovery was 2nd choice but no darn 300 Cat. Cummins was to small for 6k pull load.

Anyone in Houston that could go check out my rig? I am waiting for them to tell me when to come pick it up to bring back to COlorado.

Hi Russell, welcome to the forum. Congratulations on the soon to be your National Tradewinds. If it was an airplane I've got a cousin in Houston that could check it for you. However, he knows zilch about motorhomes.

Thanks for the coments. I should proably check Good Sam. I'll be sending my pop's down to get it for me as they have taken longer then I could have off to finish the prep work. I work 20 and 10 shifts so back to the oil field I go.

Anyhow I did find these Yutube links that at least helped me see the coach mopre and see some of the features I could not like the side mount radiator. Maybe someone looking at them can use the links.

welcome to the forum,

My website describes the conversion of my Dodge B-250 van into a small RV. I deal with a lot of woodworking, but hope to be quite specific on solar as well.

Well' I just broughthome a 2001 Safari Zanzibar 3896 . Could not find a decent National to buy. Seems they are all heavily worn or used by most of the previous owners. This coach is mint however.
