1990 Hawkins Wide Body Coach

I am considering buying a 1990 34' Hawkins Wide Body Coach with a diesel. The coach is in excellent shape in and out. Everything works. It just needs 4 new tires on the rear. It has 165,000 miles on it. They are asking $8000.00 for it. What would be a good offer for it?

Hello and We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy our website and forums. Good luck, stay safe and keep us posted.

If you are serious, as them to have new tires installed and have the drive train inspected and fluids analyzed and if they come back good you will purchase the coach. Otherwise, offer them the same and you pay for the inspection and fluid analysis

I agree with you on that. They have the paper work that says they had service done on it. What do you mean by the last sentence "offer them the same'?

Maintenance is not a good place to try and save money, especially on a coach this size and age. If they have the documentation to prove that claim fine. Just realize the oil change is going to be due again in a few months. Additionally, you're going to want to know about fuel filters and an air filter that can be expensive. If not done recently, you'll be doing them soon.

8k is a good price for a DP in good condition. I would want some assurance it IS in good condition both mechanically and from an RV perspective, and if I were not qualified to make that call, I would bring people in that are qualified.

If you find you're looking at a decent coach after the insprections, offer anything you'd like. Maybe split the cost of the tires. But don't pass on it. Good coaches that age can be difficult to find.
