2007 Damon Daybreak 3276 Thoughts?

My first post here. I have been lurking for a while and ready to pull the trigger on a Class A. This will be my first rv and sold on the bunk beds floor plan with three kids. What are your thoughts on this unit? I also am a little worried about the 50k miles on the engine is that a lot to worry about? I don't plan on going across country but don't want to have to worry about a lot of miles and wondering for if I should spend a little more for less miles? Everything inspected fine and all. Would love any opinions on this unit?

Also any other bunk bed floor plans you guys recommend for a similar age or price range used?

Thanks as always.

I would not worry about the 50k miles. It took the first owner 9 years to put them on, how long would it take you to put the second 50 on?
Love the bunks, I wish I shopped around till I found something like that. Setting up and breaking down the beds for our kid is a real pain. I like to get breakfast going early, but our dinette is use as a bed so that makes it inconvenient. Go for it.

Ironically, that RV was the foundation for the Outlaw RV (first, and best selling Class A Toy Hauler in North America).

Damon's are very well made and reliable RV's, with the highest quality systems from makers like Dometic, AE, FlexSteel, Atwood, etc. that are still available for parts and repairs.

The Ford was the standard chassis. Damon offered a $5000 optional Workhorse.
I would run the RV on NADA, to confirm price...and if the engine runs smooth, the mileage is not too high and tells you that the RV didn't just sit rotting.
These are really great RV's and worth a serious look if you like the floor plan.

Best luck

I have a Itasca Sunova 35J, VERY similar floor plan and is also on the Ford Chassis. I've got twin boys and can tell you the bunk setup is fantastic. As others have noted, not having to take down and remake dinettes/couches into beds nightly is a big plus. (It's nice to still have the living area usable after bedtime on those rainy nights as well). I just bought a few weeks ago, but we've done 2 trips and the floor plan has been really enjoyable.

The Ford Chassis/engine is a solid platform. I'd ask to see if the service records are avail, assuming the standard Maint was done that engine should have many years/miles ahead of it.

Good luck!!!!

We have a 2006 Damon Daybreak 3272 which we purchased New new from the Pamona RV show. Solid unit. Very happy with it. Looks like a clean RV from the pictures. If everything checks out I say go for it.

Good Luck!
