When I sold National coaches, I really liked the Tropical. I thought it was a great, well-built coach for the money. My only concern with the 33-foot model was the ride. I found it porpoised a bit for my taste. Take it on a long test drive. If you are happy with the drive, condition and price, I would say go for it. All of the major components are still available. One of the biggest problems with an orphan are the cosmetic things, like cabinet doors or storage doors. I believe Monaco bought the molds for the end-caps, so they should be available if you have an unfortunate accident.
