What used RV would you buy for under $90,000?
« on: July 30, 2020, 11:44:26 PM »
I've been looking at 2015 or newer used RVs with less than 20,000 miles. There are a lot of options but I find myself looking more at Winnebago and Tiffin options in that range. Any input would be greatly appreciated...

I forgot to add that I need the RV to sleep 7 as that's my family size... Thanks again! ;D

Figure I'm not getting a DP as my price range is too low...

I'd buy a mid or luxury class DP in the year-range that my $90k budget permitted. That could get you a nice 2007-2008 Winnebago Tour, for example. Or a bit newer Journey or Tiffin Phaeton.  If a gas chassis coach meets your needs, you could be quite a bit newer.

What I'm saying is that year is not important and mileage only slightly so. Condition of the house and chassis are the key factors, so forget your car-buyer mentality that focuses on year & mileage. A well-cared for older RV is perfect for the used buyer, but it may take more shopping and buyer savvy to find the good ones.

Are you looking for something to live in full-time, or to take the family on weekend and holiday camping trips? Our first gas Class A motorhome was a 28 foot Seabreeze with no slides. It could sleep six people. Our next gas Class A motorhome was a 32 foot Tiffin Allegro (single slide) and could sleep eight people. Both of those RVs were designed for families, but personally, I wouldn't want to full-time in either one of them with seven people.

Our current 43 foot diesel pusher can sleep four people, but it was really designed for two people. I think you're going to find that there are a lot of Class A and Class C motorhomes out there in the 30 to 38 foot range that are designed for families. If you're going to be full-timing with seven people, my recommendation would be to go as big as you can.
