Two years ago I too bought a repo, 2004 Class A, no records but all appeared to be in great shape. Got a great price on it, took it home performed all oil/lube changes myself to get acquainted with it. found no issues with it and have been extremely happy with it except for the no-cold. Actually the no-cold works great in the driveway or campsite but just not while moving. All in all extremely happy with our purchase.

To summarize RVChecks says clean title but Carfax says NAM branded title. Thoughts? TIA

RVChecks.com shows the following:
Odometer No Title Brand found by RVchecks

State VIN Issue Date Odometer
Florida 1RFC95544410XXXXX 20160602 EXEMPT
FL 1RFC95544410XXXXX 20120530 000049000 Miles

And no previous history to that.

Carfax shows:

If the speedometer was replaced where the mileage was in question you will have a NAM title in Florida. I have one and paperwork that shows this happened at 33000 miles when the mileage was reset to zero. The engine computer still shows actual mileage. The important thing is both buyer and seller acknowledge that what you see on the speedometer is not actual mileage.
