1999 Safari Sarhara

I have looked at one of these recently, and it might make my short list. Questions:
1. Is this unit still supported by Monaco?
2. Are body panels and cargo doors available (one of the cargo doors is warped)?
3.They say it has a 330HP Cummins , is this the 5.9 or the 8.3 engine?
4. Does anyone know what transmission is in the coach?
5. It has less than 50K miles on it and appears not to have been lived in full time. Are these older Safari's reliable ( I want to do a coast to coast trip when I retire in a couple of years)?
I welcome any other comments or suggestions about this coach. Thanks.

1. Yes
2. No
3. Check the engine ID plate on the front cover.
4. Check the transmission ID plate.
5. Depends on how well the PO took care of it. I've seen coaches from the '90's that I'd drive coast to coast but I've also seen coaches from the mid 2000's that I wouldn't trust to go out of state.
