It's never easy making this kind of decision. My DW and I had a 5th wheel and decided we really wanted a MH. We bought a 10 year old Winnebago Journey that was in good shape with 34,000 miles on it. Even tho the dealer "went through it" and gave it a clean bill of health, we chose to take it to an RV mechanic in our area. He a really did go through it and we wound up spending $1,900 on various things that the dealer said we're fine!! But, we know now that the coach is in great shape!!!! We would have had our mechanic check out any purchase.. Hope it all works out for you!!

I would say go for it! You are young and full of ambition and are capable. Sounds like your getting into it fairley reasonable. The problems you mention are not insurmountable, just takes time. Your first MH is a learning curve. All the systems ie, 110 volt, 30 amp, 50 amp, 12 volt,converters, batteries, heating, cooling, dash air, roof air, house water, city water, water pump, grey water, black water, low point drains, winterizing, dewinterizing. It will be fun. The 460 and trans are fairly stout, the will go a long ways. Fix the problems as they arise, dont go looking for trouble. There is so much information out there, just keep digging. There is also some misinformation, just wade through it. Good luck and happy motoring.
