Coachman Class C Leprechaun 319 DS Query

We're making the move from a 5th wheel to a class C and looking at buying a 2013 Coachman Leprechaun.
We would appreciate any general input from folks that's had experience with this model.
Pros...Cons...??
Things to be aware of...?
Camper has 32,000 miles and appears to be in very good condition
We like this floorplan a lot.



MH's are all new to us...been bumper pull and 5th wheeler's for years.
We've reached the age (76) where simpler setups etc and eliminating the diesel truck is appealing to us.


Also need to learn what tow equipment we'll need to buy and what we can expect this to cost on average.
I probably need to post this in a different forum?


Thanks for your time.

Many class C's have weight issues right out of the factory. Check the yellow sticker near the drivers side door and see what the weight ratings are and what your OCCC is. Get a weight from a CAT scale if you can and see if the rear axle will be over GAWR when loaded.
We liked the leprichan's we looked at when shopping, but ultimately decided to go with our class A Coachmen Mirada 32 DS. While not perfect, we have had very few problems, and no significant ones. We would buy another Coachmen again.
