While we get 5-6 mpg, we love our 345LE...there are always going to be problems with units of this age, or older, but if you have ever done a check on newer models, the return of value is immeasurable...(sp?)...the fiberglass ones are useless, and things like the ceiling fall with reckless abandon...the older coaches have problems well worth treating...it's an aluminum skin X 2, and the construction is defiant of current day production...cap it off, and call yourself lucky...cheaper than the slide-out rigs going for $250K up, and much more comfortable...AND, it's an Airstream...gotta replace a tranny and/or an engine...???still cheaper than the big rigs you see in Camping World or any other big rig repair shop, getting "adjustments" to their new rigs...slide-out problems, diesel changes, tv doesn't work...we have an original problem that doesn't cost nearly as much as the down-payment on one of the airborne albatrosses that cruise the highways...AND, we're smug in that knowledge..
we have the advantage...keep yer AS MOHO, repair it as is needed, and be happy with yer score...you can't find a better moho without mucho-mega bucks, and the comfort of an AS moho is one hell of a return...it's an AIRSTREAM...mike
