I've got a 06 Bounder Diesel. I lived in it while working in Yuma AZ for about 5 years. Been across country 8 times. I have had no problems with it (knock on wood). I have a CAT diesel and it is pre-DEF. I have fuel and oil filters changed every year along with the oil. In short no problems (mind you oil change is about $300). I change tires every 5 years - RV tires rarely need changing because of mileage but because of sitting.

Any RV will have stuff break - that's what they do!

I say if you have a good price and the rig's floor plan is what you want - go for it.

Yes.

So, check to see if it is "53 stamped block.

If so, look CAREFULLY for a coolant leak.

Have an experienced Cummins mechanic check the block. If it has the dreaded 53 block I would run. Not worth the chance, I had one of those in a motorhome and it ended up to be a $19,000 mistake.
