New To Me 1999 Dutch Star DP
I wanted to thank the folks on this forum for all the great information that has been provided.
About 3 months ago I purchased a 1999 38' DSDP and because of all the info I found here I was able to find my way through the process of the purchase and how to get the rig up to snuff. I spent several hours every night for a couple of weeks scouring through this forum. It really helped me get up to speed quickly.
I took a risk and did the pre-purchase inspection myself without consulting a mechanic. I probably shouldn't have taken this risk but I felt the price was right ($33k) and I planned to spend some money to make things right.
I had all fluids changed, belts done, new tires, had the roof re-sealed, and a few other minor repairs done. I re-caulked the sides, lubed all the latches on all doors and repaired an exhaust leak on the generator. I also installed a flat panel and replaced the KingDome with a new satellite dish.
I'm mainly using this as a support vehicle for my auto racing addiction. I've been on two race weekend trips with it so far and it's been fabulous. The main thing that blows me away about this rig is how it drives. Unbelievable compared to all of the large gas powered rigs I've ever driven. What a dream. I wish I could just head east and keep going.
Thanks again for all the info and tips that you all have provided.
