07 Kountry Star 3910 vs. 08 Kountry Star 3910
 
Hi! Ready to pounce on my first Newmar. Found two 3910's with Cummins 400 HP. One is a 2007 the other is 2008. $10k difference in price. Here's the question is the 2008 with Comfort Drive worth me going over my budget?
Hoping to join you all soon!!!

Thanks.

Comfort Drive, dont leave home without it.

I believe Comfort Drive is a great feature, but at $10K, I doubt I'd spend that much for it.

However, it's a newer coach, so the $10K is not just for the CD. The newer coach usually has more standard features/options and may have more options that the original owner ordered.

I suspect you can make that $10K difference go away without too much trouble.

There may be a difference in engines been though they are the same size. I think the 2008 had a 400isl and might have the new EPA requirements. Not so sure the 2007 had the same engine, only the same size. However, they made a few early 2008 with the pre-EPA requirements. Unless I am wrong, I believe the new EPA requirements had a negative impact on MPG. Both 2007 and 2008 have experienced exhaust manifold warping so you may want to inquire whether either had it replaced. The replacement cost was close to $1,200. Could be that one or both have had them replaced. Symptoms are a noise similar to a fan belt squeal.
