I am thinking about an RV.  I understand engines, etc. reasonably well, but not the rest of it, sewage systems, generators, etc.  How reliable does all the gear tend to be?  Is there years old/mileage amount to stay away from if buying a used rv?  Many thanks.

Best thing to do would be to find something in your price range that you like, take some pics and post here and let the people on this forum disect it for you.  You;ll get pros and cons on any unit you choose, but remember the final decision is totally up to you.  You'll be happy with the results after doing it this way, cause some one here has either owns, previously owned or knows someone that does own said model,  Good Luck

To avoid any more "hassle" than necessary hire professional help to survey the RV you untimately decide to purchase. You will also find a checklist for buying and accepting an RV in the Forum resources that will  help.

Enjoy!

Where to look for professional help to evaluate a prospective purchase? Are there techs who will certify their results, similarly to home inspectors for stick homes?

Don't know about certified results but ask if they are RVIA certified.
