Seneca is the right spelling, that may help you search better.

You can search the Jayco owner's forum, I am sure some info there.

It is a Super C, medium duty truck based chassis. Can't help much more than that, i have one similar but different manufacturer.

There are some, but not too many Seneca owners on iRV2.
The Jayco Owners Forum is here:
Jayco Owner's Forum - iRV2 Forums

The Seneca is a "Super C" on a medium duty truck (MDT) chassis, so there are also threads here:
MDT Conversions - iRV2 Forums

And using the search box at the top of any iRV2 Forum page will give you results like:
seneca - Google Search

Best luck

My Kodiak based motorhome has been great. 80k miles with only normal maintenance. There is a forum for the Super Duty motorhomes that have a lot of Seneca owners.

I am also considering a 2005 Gulf Stream Endura 6340 with gas engine. I am having some difficulties determining the actual length. The unit is another state so its difficult to measure it myself. I was looking for some actual specs with the overall lengths but have not had much luck. My shop is only 38 feet from door to wall so it is important to know the length before spend anymore time on these models.

According to this link,(when you click on Specs), the 6340 is 35'1" .

My 6340 is 35.1". In 2006 they changed trailer hitch. This made hitch stick out about 6" farther.

Thanks for the quick come back on the length issue, it is good hear that model would fit in my shop. I know now how large a class C I can get. Now tell me what are some problems that I should be looking for. Gas or Diesel?

We bought a 2009 this past summer, couldn't be happier. The Seneca is really well built, and had everything we were looking for in a coach. Tremendous storage options and weight capacity compared to a van-chassis class C, which really sold us on going this route. After looking at a number of gas class A coaches we really felt like a super C was more in line with our wants / needs, particularly with our desire for a model with a bunk slide for our kids.

Not many cons in our view - front diesel is louder I guess but I don't really notice it. Handles like a dream (ours had new shocks and tires, and a steering stabilizer added by original owners). We are planning a 3 week trip west this summer - furthest she's been so far is about a 5 hour drive, but I'm confident it will handle the long trip and mountains with ease.

Great rig, great floor plan options. Go check one out and make the decision for yourself, but I can't see how you would be disappointed by this era of Seneca of it's been well taken care of.

Jayco Seneca

I have 2 friends with 2008 Jayco Senecas, 34' and 37', both were purchased used; very nice units; the Duramax diesel is a great engine and very reliable; I have a Gulf Stream Endura (2005), and also am well pleased; we all pull trailers with an off road jeep on them, so the Duramax is a must, plus better fuel mileage and lots more torque.
