Potential Purchase Soon

We have begun a purchase process on a 2017 Fleetwood Discovery 37 R unit. It has the Cummins 360 engine and Allison 3000 box as most have, I suppose. Our 2005 Providence still works well for us but it isn't getting any younger. We do like the residential refer, fireplace, and overall look of the unit. I am curious to know any shortcomings or strengths fellow members might be aware of with this model. I await your input. Thank you to all.

Nice choice! They're good, solid rigs. It has about everything that comes on a new one. V-Ride, Firefly, solar. It'll be hard to tell it from a new one. It should have the 380 with 1150 ft-lb torque. I think you can upgrade that engine to 400 or 450. 10,000 towing. It has the turbo and I think they came with an exhaust brake, but you can add an engine brake if you feel you need it later. Discs up front and drums in back, all anti-lock. Lots of storage and big tanks. It should serve you well for many years. Get a good shade for all that windshield glass to keep it cooler. Enjoy.
