Hi, I am definitely a newbie I am 55 yrs old with my two 12 yr old dogs for companionship. I fell on hard times a year and a half ago . I tried living in a van with my 2 dogs with a bed in the back someone had built, propane heater, 5gal Flushable porta-potty, and portable shower. It was junk to begin with and $2500/repairs later I finally found something within my budget. I am in TN and Ironically the RV is in my hometown in NY. I had 2 family members go look at it and talked to the owner on the phone for over an hour. He is giving me a few more wks to pick it up so I will have extra income for the minor things that need fixing plus transfer, reg, ins, and gas to get back here. I have been trying to research this model and year. I have read some very negative things such as; they are a low-end RV, tire blowouts on the rear duallys where the exhaust is, electrolysis and just random negative things. I realize I am purchasing a 30+ yr old RV ( the price is within the NADA RV values)but if I believe the guy he is 2ND owner and his circumstances warrant that he cannot use it any longer. He is also going to let me stay in his driveway plugged in for almost a week b4 I head back to TN.. I've driven that route enough times (15,000 miles in 1 1/2 yrs and know that statistically Tuesdays and Sundays are the safest days to travel 800 miles. My question is as a First time USED RV owner of this year and model is there anything positive about this RV? If it isn't what I expected I'm thinking of continuing to sock $$$ away to upgrade and sell this eventually because they go like hotcakes( RVs in general) but I also figured I have to start someplace! I think I'm getting wedding Jitters to an RV I haven't met yet..lol. So anything positive about this year and model? anything? Thank you in advance!
