Huge difference. In every way. And tells you the owner took pride in ownership. Will pay more, but probably worth it.
Right now im just perusing the for sale sites to get an idea of what is out there. Lots of beasts of all prices..lol

Three of my five RV's were bought used ranging from less than 5 to 20k in milage. I have always stayed with gassers based upon initial cost against use. The 5k one was a Vista 26P that the owner passed away right after first trip. The only reason I bought new this last time was the perception that at my age at the time of purchase, this would probably be my last purchase and the two bathroom floorplan and living room group that the Winnie/Itasca 35F offered.

Damn nice job on your southwind! We have alot of ideas regarding what we want to do to our rig(when it is finally here). Just looking on a few sites there are plenty between $20-25000. Some better condition..im looking for one with right around 50000 miles on it.

The best advice I can give, Get educated on the systems so you know what your looking at, Then be prepared to jump when the good one comes along..
1999 Fleetwood Southwind 35S (Ford F53 6.8L V10 275hp 4R100 4 spd trans) - Toad 2003 Saturn Vue.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

Much of my choices have revolved around what I am able to do. When starting out many years ago I was able to do most of the work myself including the engine work. As time goes on I find myself with a better nest egg and much less desire and energy to do the work. so for me it is a newer coach and a little more openness of the pocket book. finding a good used class A in a gasser is doable but be cautios of what a seller may be hiding or is unaware of. I don't know your geographical area but to find a coach that has been stored indoors most of its life I would be searching around farm land. I was surprised to see how many rigs are stored in barns around here.
