Well that is low mileage... 300+/- miles per year... perhaps 108k?

Thought the 250 turbo was standard in 84. Ad states its an NA.

Banner states 35' description states 33'. Looks like 35' to me.

Better check out ALL the rubber...hoses, tires, belts.....

I have not seen this one around our area...but an FC owners impression at a glance: clearly this is a FC35' (note 3 roof airs and distance from generator area to rear axle); has rear double...a popular set up over the twins; nicely optioned with the roof crane for spare and a cargo pod; both the interior and exterior look presentable and largely undisturbed/modifed.

Bill and Woody hit it on the head...the odometer on these is 5 digits...and I would make a guess showing 08xxx would really translate to 108 or other prefix number....knowing/learning the number of engine run hours would clarify this aspect.

A buyer would want to check it out...but what I don't see is important also:
Don't see odd mods, damage, rust, or signs of misuse. This coach has not been sitting in a field for years.

Wannabees: This is one worth looking at IMO.

Note: the list of "needs work" items would need to be explored...as a DIY: these could be fairly simple wiring/switch issues...or big $$$ - but these items have easily found replacable parts. The key question is the coach overall sound and in good condition AND are there HUGE $$$ items needing to be done: like engine or transmission replacement, or coach painting or interior redo?

This coach has way to much wear & tear to be only 8K miles on the clock. Maybe 108K, and it appears to be a 35 footer from AC placements and the distance to the rear from the generator door. It looks like another sales pitch to me, I remember this coach being for sale about 6 -8 years ago. It would have a 250HP 3208 in it as well.

I looked carefully at the coach and although the writeup says there is only 8K miles on the coach then if that is true then the coach has truly been abused. Lots of corrosion on the aluminum wheels and top hats, goat rails etc. Paint is faded and you can see where the corrosion has run down the sides of the coach and created white trails. I bet on 108,000 miles at least. I would suspect the writeup since it is an auction service that probably knows nothing about the coach.

Well I kept my comments to myself when I started this thread, but yes the coach has a ton of age on it for 8000 miles. The listing refers to it as a 33 and a 35. Engine listed as a NA when we know its a turbo. Obviously a 35 footer. If you can't get the description reasonably correct then......Who knows 8000 or 108000 or 208000 or more miles?

I found this interesting and obviously others have too. This one just does not make me warm inside. Just a feeling I get from it. At 32K I suspect the bidding won't keep us up at night!

There are several around that are more reputable and 5 to 10 K lower in price and even they are not moving anywhere fast. Good to look at everything and evaluate each situation though.

Now there is someone who is on the ball! Do you cross reference VINS to the forum all the time?
