We have been full time on a 1995 30’ Landyacht LE since the spring of 2008 and we could not be happier.
We found two Landyachts, one in Casa Grande AZ and one in Mesa AZ. We bought the one in Casa Grande because it had more accessories (leveling jacks, and two AC units), we liked the interior better and we preferred the Ford chassis over the Chevy.
Comfort; the coach is great for the two of us. It is easy to drive and handle. We have had my son and his partner aboard and that works fine for a couple of days. The granddaughter has worked out great for a week at a time.
The AC keeps us comfortable when it’s hot out and when poor planning has placed us in a cold environment; we have kept nice and warm with either the AC on heat setting or the furnace. The furnace heats all the tanks so we don’t have to worry about anything freezing while we move south “where the weather fits our clothes”.
Performance; All the onboard systems work very well. If the coach has been maintained well you should have no problem. Keep in mind the systems are all 10 to 15 years old and even the best equipment can just were out.
We (actually the dealer) replaced the inverter and the refrigerator when we bought the coach. The refrigerator was not working; probably from lack of use, and the inverter was suspect, but working. We also replaced the three burner stove top with a stove top and oven, just because we like to have a conventional oven in addition to the microwave/convection oven.
We replaced the house batteries and all the tires because they were very old. Check the date on the tires. The ones on the rig we bought where 8 years old! Anything 5 years old or older need to be replaced.
We tow a Jeep Wrangler and it tows fine. You will be happier with gas mileage and engine strain by unhooking for steep climbs.
Quality; the quality is great, it’s an Airstream!
Issues; check for leaks, we had some. If the previous owner(s) did not stay on top of calking there could be some problems. Search the group here and you can see what I mean.
Gas mileage, we average about 7 mpg towing the Jeep.
I would absolutely buy another, but I can only drive one at a time
I think the only lengths where 30’ 32’ and 36’but I am not sure about that.
Good luck with your search, you are on the right track.
