On ebay it states that the cruise control is non functional. Does anyone have a rough guesstimate of why / repair cost?

Why not just ask Adrian what he thinks is wrong with it???? Anyone else would just be guessing as to the many possible reasons it isn't working. Heck Adrian may not know if he hasn't tried to fix it but its worth a try.

I have not had it in to the shop to fix but worst case scenario I believe is replacing the DDEC controller, maybe $1500-2000, I have no idea. If I had more time I would have fixed it but I've been swamped with work and cannot be without the coach to let a shop troubleshoot it. I bet it is just a ground or broken wire somewhere.
The reverse camera has always blinked on/off and now doesn't work at all... These are just the little gremlins that a 25y/o coach owner has to deal with. Honestly it is probably not much wrong with it...

Cool, good to know. I'm sure this coach is going to go for more than I can afford but I thought it would be good to know.

Justin, I hope it goes for around $110k :-) lol ... You will find one, just hang around - we spent two years looking for our first coach and over 6 months looking before we bought this one... just have the cash ready to go and you will catch one!

It took me 6-7 (maybe 8?) years to get mine. And 18 months later, I'm still ecstatic with it.

The waiting really is the funnest part (and the shopping)... I figure the longer you look the less buyer's remorse you have...
