2000 Land Yacht XL

I am going to be looking at a 2000 Land Yacht 355 XL tomorrow. What are the items I need to be looking for to make sure this is a good Motorhome to purchase? What are the outer walls made of ( what is sandwiched between the inner and outer walls, wood or metal)? It has the Ford Triton V10 Engine and overdrive transmission are there any issues with those and what about the parking brake. I am looking for all of the information I can to make sure I make the right decision for purchasing this unit. I currently own a 345 Classic which I may sell if I buy this unit.

I haven't received any responses regarding my questions. I was hoping to educate myself prior to looking at this unit. Wanted information on any issues including drive train, must not have current owners on this forum.

Thanks for your reply and links to potential issues and specs. I took a look at the 355XL today and decided to purchase it based on the information I was able to find regarding better brakes, heavier suspension and with two slides a better interior layout. One negative it is still a 30 amp input instead of the 50 amp I was looking for. I will again have to run a separate cord for the rear air.
This will mean I will be selling my 345 Classic once the purchase is complete. My wife thinks I should keep both for a while to make sure I will not miss the Classic.
