Hey Terry, fancy seeing you over here.

36 footers in that year range and model are going to be scarce. Maybe non-existent. By 2006 most higher end models had forsaken 36 ft length and even 38 ft was rare - the buyers all wanted bigger rigs. And you don't find the 400 hp ISL or Cat C9 in a 36 footer either.

We had a 2005 Diplomat with the ISL 400. It was a 36' model that was actually 37'. The floorplan was called the SKT. it was a side aisle 2 bedroom slide and one living room slide. It was a ROCKET at 36' and I chopped the engine and changed the engine fan, bringing it up to 450 HP. It was rated to tow 10K.

What feed back does anyone have
Hey Brad. I tow a "V" nose 27' trailer. I am just over the 65 foot length. I see you live in AZ. Your state has a 65 foot limit. My setup is 65' 6". So, I'm a little over. Don't tell.
