Good advice. I honestly had not thought about compatibility issues with that CAT. I understand the 3208 is a pretty solid engine, but you are correct that sometimes different components do not mate up well. I do a lot of work on mountain bikes and this is one of the most frustrating aspects of it! Thanks for stopping by and have a good one.

Thanks again to everyone who posted and shared your experiences. Lots of solid advice here!

We are still going to go look at the coach, and we will let you know what happens. We are also going to look at a few different coaches locally this weekend. Whatever we decide to purchase, we'll make sure to update you all with good photos and try to keep you updated on our journey. .

Oh, and here are some interior photos. Enjoy

Looks like it was pretty well cared for. But IMHO for a nearly 30 year old coach it is way over priced. And a total deal breaker for me is no oven! I like to camp with no hookups and so we use the oven a lot. Others who park in "resorts" type parks with full hookups find this no big deal. But.......
