03 Discovery 37’ 330hp

Hey all, new to the Fleetwood forum. We are looking possibly purchasing a 03 discovery. Owner has owned it for Last 13 years, always covered storage when not in use. Used yearly for FL trips. All books, manuals, diagrams, service records. Really I nice coach. Everything is operational, roof perfect shape, O leaks, no delamination, oven never used, stove to heat water on occasion. All new dash air components from compressor to dash. Tires, Michelin 3 years Old, genny has 236 hours, coach has 40,000. Anything I should be on the lookout for? Is this a descendant coach? We sold our 2000 Monaco and realize there are quality differences, but we are just part timers, maybe one long trip a year. Just want something dependable. I do all my own repairs and maintenance and know there will be some on occasion So that is just a normal part of the equation. Just looking for some pros and cons on the coach. Thanks, Steve

We owned a 2003 Discovery, sold it during a medical situation. Was a really nice coach. Never had any big problems. Engine/trans was a good match. I have a 2007 Bounder dp now, very much the same but only 300 hp. Wish we had the Discovery still, was a great ride. Good luck

Also check the gas regulator on propane tank and range for leaks.. converting the refrigerator to the Amish cooling plant is also a nice upgrade.

Guess I should update this thread. We actually ended up passing on the coach and purchased a 04 Monaco triple slide with a cummins/allison combo. Thanks for the replies!
