Hello - me again
I have another thread about a '06 HR Endeavor. I'm also needing advice on a '08 and separated them so each thread wouldn't get too long.
We've looked at a stunningly beautiful '08 HR Endeavor 40PDQ. It looks brand new. We can't trade ours in as it's with an individual, so not sure we want to go that route. I know we'd probably come out better financially this way rather than trading IF our MH sold. We're playing the "what ifs" about how long it would take to sell ours, so we'd have 2 MHs for a while, but that's not my question.
The question is the MH only has 17K miles on it. Basically it was driven to Austin TX by the 1st owner, back to Indiana by the 2nd owner, and then to FL where it has been sitting at the owner's son's house in St. Cloud. The owner comes to FL each season and drives the MH 160 miles round trip to Mt. Dora and then back to the son's house to store it during the off season. So, the bulk of the miles were put on it several years ago. I've read that not being used is not a good thing...that low miles is not necessarily good. We're also concerned about the other mechanical things not being used often like the slides, etc. Don't they suffer from non-use also?
The other question is that the son is very proud of the fact he keeps the tires off the ground. (The tires will need replacing sooner rather than later as they are original.) He has the jacks on a cement block so the tires are just barely off the ground. Am I wrong that this isn't good? This worries the DH.
