I'm thinking of buying a 2005 Coachman Mirada 300Q.with a V 10 engine do they have any problems with this class A motorhomeIt's a 30 footer
RV Mechanic: eauto, RV Owner replied 4 years ago

it is a problem and its a solveable proble. The plugs need to be properly torqued with a torq wrench when replacing and it lessons the likley hood of failure. They make a repair kit (time cert) when it happens...

Any other issues with this motor or transmission?is the Coachman a well built class A motorhome?
RV Mechanic: eauto, RV Owner replied 4 years ago

they are pretty reliable...as far as any camper they all are problematic weather you buy a 300,000 pusher or a 10,000 pull behind... Just make sure there is not rot and caulk all the windows and hatches etc yearly...verify not rot and everything functions... Thats the best you can do

why the negative rating?

this is a cheapCoachman?
RV Mechanic: eauto, RV Owner replied 4 years ago

If you treat it well, maintain it as all RV's need to be, and don't abuse it, the Coachmen will give you good value for you money. But its Not even close to a top of the line coach They are lower end

its one of the better ones in the coachman line but coachmans are not high end premium coaches.... The Ford E chassis is solid and dependable. So it should serve you well if it was maintained and in good shape..

How about a 2001 Condor 34 Ft. GM Workhorse engine?
RV Mechanic: eauto, RV Owner replied 4 years ago

its about equal in quality as a coachman but most came with the 8.1 gm motor and i think the motor and transmission are superior to the ford and coach quality is about equal...bot are entry level class A s that are built decent

hope you can rate my service 5 star
