I have a 1995 Santara 36' Class A. I've only had it a short time and haven't really put it fully to use yet but so far I am pleased with it. I'm pretty sure they made a Class C Santara back then too but obviously that would be a different animal altogether. While I believe the Santara was Coachmen's top-of-the-line gas coach at that time, as old as they are now, anything you might purchase from that era is a bit of a gamble.
Spend plenty of time looking for evidence of rot and appliances that don't work. On the older stuff, there are so many things that can end up costing money and causing headaches, you really need to be thorough in your inspections. You WILL find problems, it is up to you if they are serious enought to be deal-killers.
Best of luck!
+1 on the Sportscoach Cross Country. They are NIIIICE! Obviously, a bit more money.
