Hello All, Well, I know there are so many of you with much more experience then I have on motor homes so I am asking some advice on buying one.
I have redone my old 64 Lo Liner and am getting ready to make atrip back to Missouri . But I am thinking of selling the old girl and getting a Class C. Don't want a bigger Thinking of a older one. I say older one because Im not looking to spend 20,000 plus for one. I'm going to be looking for a cash deal . I have found some ads on Graigslist for some such as mid 80s to late 90s from the 3 to 5k price with low miles and hey seem to have sold quick. Anyway, what is some opinions? Ford? Chevy? Brands?
I really wanted to find a school bus and convert it but don't have a place or the health to get into that.
I got years experience around big busses but really in the dark at getting into the buying of a motorhome. I just appreciate any input. Thanks Rick
Hello Rick, Pat sized it up pretty good. The water leaks is a killer it kinda lets you know if the people took care of it or tried to cover it up. I just picked up a 1985 chief 33' last year and i really love it . low miles is nice but if they took good care of it that may not be a issue. check under the hood and see if it has all the stock stuff or something like a banks power kit is good. and dont forget the refer. good luck Ron........
Hi Ron, Thanks for the reply. I will keep those things in mind. I do apprecieate this advice from you and Pat.
I am not to worries about electrical repair because thats up my alley as well as plumbing or appliance repair. But leaks I will lookat closely. I am concerened about engines. I could do some repairs but nothing major anymore. I am also trying to get some feedback on what were some good (gas) engines to look for in a rv. Has a Ford proven better then Chevy or Dodge motor or vice versa and things like that. I also realize that fuel milage might depend on the size but kinda trying to get a idea on mpg of under a 25ft one, Gas engine that is.
Always more to learn lol Thanks Again , Rick
