After reading this thread though I'm considering buying for longer term. From what I'm reading the gasser's last a lot longer then i thought. Was wondering if anyone has a Sightseer and what the think of them? We're looking at the 35G mostly. If we wait for Hersey show or get a dealer to match prices we think it's a great deal to buy new. Any thoughts
Our 2004 Sightseer 35N is the first and only motorhome of any kind that we have owned. We bought it used 2 years ago, it had 38K miles on it and the generator had 95 hours of run time. Everything worked and ran just fine as it's supposed to, no leaks. Home base is just NE of Tulsa Oklahoma. We've taken it to Rutherfordton, NC. then to Springfield Arkansas, then to Troy Montana, and have just returned from Crater of Diamonds State Park in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas. Everywhere we go there have been mountains with 6 and 7% grades with winding twisting roads testing engine, trans, brakes, and driver. We travel with 2 dogs and tow a Dodge RAM 1500 that weighs 5460 pounds. The hitch was beefed up by a certified hitch shop and towed braking is provided by a Brake Buddy. I have added a Safe-T-Plus 41-230 steering stabilizer and a pretty good solar system, our goal is to stop anywhere, any time, and everything works
Thus far the Sightseer has not been and is not the limiting factor, we are. I don't see that changing, possibly ever.
