kpecks-
You need to join the Prevost Community forum. This will be (IMHO) your best source of information regarding things to inspect, consider, be wary of etc. very helpful site. But you have to join.
When I was considering my Ď08 Marathon XLII Prevost, this is where I went and the information I received there was invaluable. Even though I recently bought a Ď20 London Aire, I still belong and still learn from the members there. -Ron

Check out Andrew Steele on Youtube. He has tons of videos on Prevost. He does do consulting for Prevost buyers for a fee.

With all due respect to Andrew Steele, he is absolutely not a Prevost expert by any means.

I enjoy watching his video's but he is just an interviewer. The Pro's are at the Prevost Community website.

Safe Travels,
Mark

Andrewszteele is just a guy cashing in on the rv craze. He really does not know much about rv"s. Hiring him would be a waste of money. I was considering a used Marathon and spoke with him at length. A true professional. Postersshould be aware that Prevost does not do conversions. They build the raw bus. There are not many convertors but Narathon and Liberty are2 of the best. A tour of the Marathon facility will answer any questions you may have. You will quickly understand why they are expensive. Bluebirds are not conversion buses. They are a factory motorhome We own a 1988 pt38. Our second Bird. They are amazing. Ours is a classic unit. There are many Birds for sale from the late 90' s or early 2000's. They are a true bargain. No Newmar or other plastic unit can compare to a Bird or a Prevost. We also own an 08 Dynasty. A nice unit and although we love it there is no comparison to the build quality of a Bluebird or Prevost.
