When we purchased it, we expected to do some work, but it seems to have been more than just some. However, we are at a point where we can start enjoying it now. After we purchased it, we took it to a friend of ours, who works on coaches. He went through everything and inspected it to make sure everything is in good condition. He did a few minor things on the inside, plus replaced all the shocks on the lower compartment doors, all the seals on the lower compartment doors, replaced the slide awning, and then replaced the roof. We then took it to the diesel mechanic. He ended up checking the drivetrain and had to replace the fuel lines(stated they were leaking fuel). Then lastly we had to replace the tires. Luckily we heard about this site and so I joined. Saved us almost $800 on tires. We now have the coach back home. We cleaned it up and started stocking it with stuff. Probably start off with small trips. It will be just myself, my husband and our 4 dogs.
