We have a 2005 Tropical 370LX with the 350 Cat.

Very nice coach well. Well built. Good quality throughout. Not sure if there were changes between 2005 and 2007 on lay-out, etc. We love ours. We are second owners and have had it for just over a year. It has 32K miles no issues. We spent every weekend in it this summer beginning with 4th of July and we just brought it down from the mountains yesterday.

I have three friends that also have National products and they are all very happy as well.

Good Luck!!

National Tropi

You didn't say which model you were looking at. I purchased a slightly used 2008 Tropical T33a 34' diesel with the 350 hp cummins and Allison transmission about a year ago. It had 16,000 miles on it so it was barely broken in. Aparently the first owner had an injector clog and continued driving it and fried #1 piston and ruining the crank and more. Cummins put all new pistons,crank, bearings and a new short block, that happened at 6K, so engine only had a true 10K on it when I bought it. We have taken it from the bay area to Wash state and to Yellowstone with no issues. Interior was immaculate and everything was in good working order. Hope you are looking at the same model. You will be happy with your decesion.
