Knowing what I know now, I'd keep my money in my pocket and I'd drive the wheels off this low miles Endeavor! I'd probably replace the couch with all my savings, and I wouldn't worry about the rest of the grandmish looks.. lol

what a steal

We've had a 34 foot 2002 holiday rambler Endeavor since new and love it.
shortest endeavor made that year, but with same suspension and drive train as units up to 40 feet, so more 'get up and go' and more carrying capacity (7000+ lbs) than
the larger units.
'02 was the last year holiday rambler/monaco/beaver made the endeavor/diplomat/contessa? in that short a length - 36's and 38's were also available.

Another nice one at Foretravel Texas.

If it were today we'd be looking seriously at this one.

Keep the ideas coming. Love the help.

The ISM has been around for a good while and they're just about bullet proof. 122K on the ISM equates to arguing if 25k is too many miles on a car. That engine will be running when you get to the old folks home more than likely. I would rather have that many miles on a 15 year old coach than 50k. I really think the 122K is a non issue.

My coach is one year older and I've had the alternator re-built (200.00), replaced the air dryer (350.00) and a few air leaks chased down in the last 2 years. With the coach being sold from M.O.T. I would think that it's probably ready for coast to coast trip but then again.......it is 15 years old but the drivetrain would be the least of my worries.

Found Our Coach

After more than a year of looking we found a 2000 34' Foretravel U270 at Motorhomes of Texas. immeasurable help over the last year from the folks at Foreforum and actually the coach we bought had been consigned by a Forum member.

One of only 11 34' FT's made in 2000.

Worth the wait!
