01 Dynasty or 02 H.R.Imperial

I sure could use some opinions on which coach might be the better deal.2001 Regent tag axel 350hp. Cummins 100,000 miles orignal owner with maintance records(I have not seen either coach records) 700 hours on 7500 onan three year old tires for both coaches.All photos look good.2002 H.R. Imperial 370hp Cummins 54000 miles orginal owner looked at this coach in person(looks pretty nice)93 hours on 7500 onan. H.R. 10 miles from home. Regent 1700 miles.H.R.$71500.00 and Regent $67000.00 Thanks in advance for any opinions.

I agree the tag axle is awesome, but I would be concerned about the 100k miles on the Dynasty. The Cummins ISC and the Allison can take 100k miles easily, but the rest of the items in the coach can be a pain.

The Imperial has the Cummins 8.9L ISL. Even though it’s the 370HP version, it has more torque (1200 ft lbs) than the 350HP 8.3L ISC with 1050 ft lbs.

Does either coach have Aqua Hot? Are they both 2 slide models?

It’s a buyer’s market out there, so if you are not 100% satisfied with either coach, keep looking. Maybe look for a 2002 Dynasty tag axle with the ISL and less miles?

at 40 feet or more tag is a must have trust me, aqua hot is awsome, isl is better choice for torque and economy, lower milage is always better, too few hours on a genny could mean problems down the road, both coachs are well made, in that vintage dynastys inho are the cats meow, I assume the HR has the s chassis as well, if not the 100K dynasty would be my choice.

send you a pm

My 03 42' dynasty isl 400 3 slide is as good as it gets. I travel with friend with 45' isx 600 foretravel. He has a few more push button gadgets and has had two times as many issues as I have had knock on wood. Look hard and long at the layout and the refer I just turned 90 K on runing gear and have great luck.

Find one she likes the layout and then get a 330 or larger , I like 05 and older for lack of emissions junk on power train...
