What engine? Looks like a Workhorse W22 steering wheel.

Yeah, that is a Workhorse, ad says 24k chassis. That would be the 8.1l Vortec Chevy engine. (Which is a favorite of mine)

I've always admired the Mountain Aires, so to me that looks like a nice coach at a decent price.

Looks like one of those "ten year" coaches. IE, you want to camp at a resort where they have a rule that no RV's older than ten years are allowed. So you might fib and say it's a 2012 and no one would blink an eye. I'd believe it. Nice looker.

Wow! It looks to be in really good shape! I have no idea if the price is right.

Same model as mine but 2 years newer. This was the top of the line in gas coaches then. Love mine and the floorplan. You will probably want to do some chassis handling mods if they aren't already there. I did front and rear trac bars, front Koni shocks, Roadmaster steering stabilizer. It drives pretty well now.

I think they are a little high on the price. I would love to get that for mine. In today's market however, that may be about right. You will have to decide.
