Beach city rv's in orange county, ca

Will be going to look at a newmar 2009 ventanna 3961(44k miles). Just curious if anyone has had any experience with beach cities rv and where I may find a rv tech or mechanic to do inspection.

If this is the one, not a bad looking coach. Don't know anything about the dealer.

I don't have any experience with this company.
But it does look like they are a consignment lot, and don't have a repair bay on site. So you probably can't ask them to fix anything as part of the deal.

We bought our coach used from Mike Thompson's RV, and made a fix-it list of items that we wanted fixed as part of the deal.

Mike Thompson does hire outside people to handle their customer delivery walk-thru, so you might consider calling them to get a couple of names of the people they use...who I am sure would be able to do a walk-thru inspection for you...but it probably would not involve chassis mechanical or engine condition.

Just be ready that there are probably a fair amount of "little things" that you may not see, but will discover after a trip or two.

I would also recommend some research on the large wall slides..
Slides are a critical item, and some designs have had a bigger share of problems.

Best of luck...

Dan

They are a consignment lot. Be very careful! In my personal opinion they are the definition of shady!

I wanted to buy a motorhome at their lot three years ago.

I stopped by during my lunch break and walked around their lot. Nobody was there. The coaches were unlocked, so I ventured inside. I fell in love with a Winnebago DP, and I would have purchased it on the spot.

I finally found a woman who said she was the mother of the owner. She said everyone was out to lunch. She gave me a phone number to call. I called and gave them the information on the coach that I was interested in, and they never called back with the details. I returned on my way home from work and the coach was gone, and they said it was there for repairs and not for sale, (it had a spec sheet with a price on the dinette table). And, they do not have a repair facility!

I returned the following Saturday with my two teenage kids, to see if they liked anything. Once again, nobody was there! But the coaches were unlocked.

They never returned my calls. I explained that I had cash to purchase any of the motorhomes on their lot. They still never returned my calls.

If I ran into an author or screenwriter that needed inspiration to write about a "front" for illegal activity, I would send them over to take a look at this place!
