    I have a 1998 Viking 1906. It's very similar to yours.

    Thanks! I do not own it, I was looking for others that might have similar. Just seeing how people like or dislike it.

    I had a 2008 2108st and other than the cheap lid for the front storage I thought it was pretty well built. We had it for 4 years and didn't have any problems at all with it. Being 12 years old you will want to check all of the sealant on it, check the floors for rot as well as the roof, especially the vertical sides. Overall though I thought mine was a pretty well built coach for what it was.

    Does it have the IDT lift system(the crank is in the back of the camper)? If yes, then that could be a big problem. There were issues with that lift system and the IDT company is out of business. Better check this out before you buy it.

    I have read about the issues with that lift system, I think I will stay away form that one.

    Thanks for the heads up...
