1999 355 XL Land Yacht

Anyone heard of any problems with this model, power train or in general?

This is the 35 footer with the double slide, gas engine Triton V-10.

Thanks for your input.

Check any used RV unit close for water damage. Both the roof and basement. There have been lots of heavy weather/floods in both fresh and salt water areas and expensive water damage can be difficult to repair on any RV.

There was a recall on these years for the fridge and brakes.
2000 AIRSTREAM LAND YACHT RECALL FOR SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC, SWITCHES, BRAKE WARNING PROBLEM #03V152000

These units are indicated to have a max. carrying capacity of approx. 2200# so be aware of that when traveling. Stuff adds up quickly and a weigh scale ticket in needed to know where you are for weight.
