Now the good: Brand new A/C compressor and hoses installed, all new brakes and hoses, fairly fresh rubber roof, no leaks after hurricane Irma came thru (4 days of hard rain), all carpet/bfloor covering new, all appliances, pumps, tanks, drains in good condition, new charger/converter, engine, tranny, exhaust in good shape and ZERO leaks. We have taken her out twice now and absolutely LOVE it! We paid $6,500 for her with no regrets (tires coming).
slow down to 48mph and your mileage should be about 10mpg. they are geared for power not speed.

It's important to keep in mind that in 1992, the national speed limit was 55 mph, and coaches were being built to maximize effeciency. The law was repealed in 1995.

Changing all of your tires is top priority, we had a rear inside blow and it took out electric and air lines. All of our tires were 20+ years old. If a front one blows you are guaranteed a disaster.

Picked this little gem up today for $100. It did leak but not much. I only found one small soft spot in the ceiling and needs a little work on the door. Other than that it should be good. Plumbing and everything is suppose to work and the floor is solid.

That's a sweet deal for $100. Do you have a truck for it?
