I bought a 1996 Safari Sahara in 2007.
I limited my search to Safaris after seeing the floor plan and interior pictures. As I searched I learned more about the coaches from the SafariFriends Yahoo group. Safarifriends : To promote the exchange of information regarding SAFARI MOTORHOMES.
There are now two such groups, SafariFriends and SafariCoaches.
SafariCoaches : Sharing about Safari Coaches lifestyle
The build quality of those coaches was excellent through the 90s. Safari designed their own chassis in the mid-90s and the bay storage - almost all are pass-throughs - is huge. The chassis was so well designed that Monaco bought Safari in 2001 in order to get that chassis. All cabinetry is solid wood, not veneer over core-board. Appliances are top brands. Styling is very modern - I've been asked in campgrounds if mine is a new model and where did I get the (stock) paint job.
The disk brakes are excellent and Safaris all had standard exhaust brakes (PacBrake). The mid-90s coaches had either spring suspensions or Torsilastic suspensions (rubber torsion bars). The torsion bars are in limited supply but available from either a few Safari owners who bought remaining stock or from Mexico where they are still being manufactured.
My coach has the spring suspension and I'm quite pleased with it. The previous owner moved the generator to the first passenger-side bay and added some ballast weight to improve handling.
The best part was price.
About the cost of a new, well-equipped minvan.
