First RV

Well it's a 27ft unit, 1989 with 37k miles. it's the 460 with 4.10. has efi, but no overdrive. I have a mechanic friend who is going to go over the whole rig for me.

the layout is a rear bedroom, split washroom and two swivel chairs next to the dinette. it has a 4k onan generator that the second owner installed a few years ago, trailer hitch at both ends, the awning will need replacing in next year. second owner kept a record of what they did, tires, fridge a couple years ago. roof resealed 2 years ago. unit is clean and doesn't feel lived in, we will need to get a new mattress for the back and foam pad for cab over. will also look at cutting carpet out of kitchen and hallway to replace with vinyl planks.

looking to go out for a week in april and see how she is.

thanks Jayson, it is very clean. and the detail quality seems pretty high. first time i saw a dinette with out plywood base. cabinets are nice and solid, and all captain chairs function fully.

thanks everyone. she has 37k miles, that was one of the things that caught my eye. although I know low mileage can cause issues too. my mechanic friend seems excited about, so I am hoping to find as much weaknesses as possible over the summer. then go for our big road trip up north which will probably be around 3500 miles. I am from the north and have done the drive more times than I can recall, but never in a motorhome.

That's s the needle in the haystack find, it's more than new to you, it's new. Your going to enjoy that one for many years and now it's time to put the peddle to the metal.
