2008 Revolution made by Fleetwood

I'm looking at a 2008 revolution LE 42N made by Fleetwood. Does anyone know the quality and any problems with this motorhome?
We found one we really like but not sure what kind of quality product that Fleetwood made. It's on a Sparta chassis with a 400 Cummings in it.
Also the generator has 26070 hours on it. That seems like a lot of hours on a generator. Anyone know?
Any knowledge would be helpful.
Thanks for taking the time to educate me.

I feel Fleetwood makes a quality product, the 42N is at the top of my list for my next coach.

That does seem like a lot of hours however lots of hours I would think is better then low hours. Especially if those high hoirnuave service records!

Most hour meters have a .1 as the last so it probably reads 2607.0. Lots of diesel gens will go 25,000 hrs in commercial use.

I have a slightly older 40 LE Fleetwood Revolution and in the last 4 years we have driven about 35,000 miles with very few problems. As others have said there is a decimal on the generator hour meter so I would be really concerned with the hours.

Do you know it was made on the American coach line? Do you know what the Le stands for regarding the spartan/fleetwood chassis? My 07 40v purchased new has been a great coach.

I'm not sure what any of it stands for.
I was told it is on a Sparta chassis (not sure what that even means).
I will look at the hour meter on the generator again.
I don't know anything about Fleetwood or how they are built. Therefore I'm turning to you guys out there that are in the know.
Thanks for all of you taking the time to help educate me.

Le chassis is part spartan and part fleetwood the front and rear chassis is spartan and the middle is fleetwood a engineering marvel. It was made on American couch line with the Eagle, Tradition,etc. High end units.
