Coached not used lately

Might go look at a coach that has been kept in heated storage entire life but not driven for over 1.8 years. Not sure how often it was started but owner said starts and runs good. Excellent maintenance first 12 years. Would you be worried? 8.1 with Workhorse and Onan generator.

No, just have a mechanic take a look. Biggest issue would be contaminated fuel and carbs would need to cleaned and gas drained.

Great to hear. Was kept very well first 8 years and serviced right on schedule, so if it's as clean as it looks in pictures could be a very nice coach for 10 years old.

The LED dash display is made by Actia. The original one was a grey color and the newer ones are in orange.

I'm on my third one. Make sure you can read the display.

What year and make is the RV and how many miles? Price?

Tires - look at the date code for sure! Sitting for almost 2 years won't have done them any good and they probably have flat spots regardless of how they look. Tires are a pretty big expense so I would take that into consideration. Another thing to look closely at are fuel lines and hoses for aging and dry rot. We had a gas MH that had that problem and it cost a bundle to replace the bad ones. Good luck! Remember beauty on the outside and inside are great but what you can't see easily can be a killer!
