    Hey gang, looking at a M/H. Was at the dealership yesterday and a older couple traded in this M/H. Real cream puff, looks brand new only 16,000 miles. Talked to the owner (even helped move them into their new one.) Only went on short trips and always garage kept. My question is what's the average life of the frig, roof airs, generator and such. Not sure if we should think of an extened plan or gamble. Any opinions appreciated. Hollis it has the Workhorse chassis with the allison trans. Other than being a gas hog, you happy with your performance? Thanks in advance,

    Yes Butch I am very happy with the workhorse and Allison transmission. I did have the BANKS System installed and that helped out a lot. When I bought mine it had only 12,000 on it. I would check the maintance records and see how offen the oil was change, what brand of oil and filter was used.

    Good luck

    Thanks Guys, Been looking for a good one for awhile now. The plan is to give this a try for a year or two. We know we like the 5th wheel , but been hearing to much about traveling in a motorhome. Think we won't take to bad of a loss on this one if we decide to go back to the 5th wheel. Get ready for a bunch of questions, these things have more butttons and switches than an airplane! :eek: :laugh:
