'03 Discovery 39 S

I've found a nice '03 Discovery 39S that I'm very interested in buying. The problem is that it's about 600 miles away from me and I can't get there right away to inspect it. How do I go about finding a reliable RV person whom I could hire to inspect it for me. Also, how important is it to have an Oil Test on a 330 Cat & Transmission Fluid Test on an Allison 6-Speed w/ less than 40,000 miles ?

Most of the knowledgable people on this site will encourage you to get the engine oil analysis done before you buy. However, I didn't do that late last summer before I bought mine and so far I'm happy with the unit, granted I've only put a few thousand miles on it since then. I had the oil changed and other service work done by a Frieghtliner/Cat dealer when I got home with it (it was located about 850 miles from me). Time will tell how it holds up. The current owner may have a recent analysis for you to look at. I'm sure others will post better and more relevent info before too long.
