1997 Allure remodel
Hi. We are considering purchasing a 1997 36 ft Allure with 110,000 miles on Cummins 325 HP. Most things seem to be original, and although they show age, nothing shows neglect. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of maintenance history available.
The coach has the great room slide, which appeals to us more than the kitchen slide in newer units. Aside from some interior color updates, we know we need to factor in some mechanical work in order to travel with peace of mind. I am expecting to address the following things, but would welcome any other suggestion/comments regarding taking on this project.
Has PTO been upgraded to wet design?
Replace all air bags and shocks.
Full chassis inspection
Service rear end
New tires and batteries
Engine oil & filters. (Unfortunately, Cummins said there is no option to increase HP on this engine)
Goal is to have a safe and reliable unit for two people and two dogs to enjoy on a 3-4,000 mile summer trip then shorter adventures until we are no longer able to travel.
