Owning any older MH is not for everyone. If you are not mechanical it can be an expensive learning experience/ MH owners tend to ignore maintenance ( but of course not we Monaco owners). It is not unusual to spend $10,000 immediately after buying an older unit. If the maintenace is not up to date the following may be required( new batteries, tires,belts,hoses,coolant, change all filters and fluids, shocks, alignment) That is just the chassis! These units cannot be serviced at your nearest Wal Mart or Pep Boys. Sometimes one can get lucky and buy one that has all the service records and these items have been maintained. You did not state the price or what price range would work. Is length important? I happen to know of a nice Foretravel that is for sale. I have not actually seen this unit nor do I even know the owner but these are fine units. I would not be surprised if it could be had for closer to $55,000. 450 HP Cummins and a 6 speed Allison
