Interested owner with a towing capacity ??
Hello Everyone,.. I hope you'll have a bit of patience on this, my first post here. I've been looking at class A's for about 3 years now and was primarily interested in a used DP 35' or under. Nothing has really caught my eye and now with interest rates what they are i was going to stop looking all together. But this past week a coach came to my attention and may be a good deal but I have one main concern. The RV is a 2004 Gulf Stream Sun Voyager, 16,000 original miles… 503 fuel injected Vortex. The asking price is $30,000.
The owner claims it has an Allison transmission, does this sound right. The wife and I looked att it and it is a very clean RV, but I do have a couple of concerns. I am very mechanical having been an Aircraft and industrial Technician so some of the minor things do not concern me. What I am most concerned with is the towing capacity. One of the main things we will be doing is traveling to out of state car Shows and towing a 20" aluminum open trailer with my show car. Total weight of the car and trailer would be close to 6ooo#. Is this beyond the capacity of this drive train.
Thank you and if we do purchase tthis it will be our first so I am sure I'l be looking for guidance from the experienced folks here.
