hello...please advise

hey all short time lurker.

Wife and I have been discussing an rv and the conversation usually swings wildly between a 20TT, and a 1998-2003 25-35 gas. But last night we were looking at a what appeared to be too good to be true...so I need some advisement from you wise folk. we wouldnt consider this except that it is well within our budget.

1997 Rexhall 3550, Cummins 8.3, 50k miles, 7500 diesel gen set, super slide, dual A/C, 2010 dot tires ( all steering tread...i prefer tractions on rear), original owner...and every scrap of paper since day one. paint is a little flat but not bad, interior is as clean as my house.Every thing seems to operate, but the price seems strange. does 22k seem too cheap?

thanks y'all

Howdy and welcome to the forum! The Rexhall sounds like a winner, especially in good condition. I'd say have a look at the NADA Guide and see how that pricing compares. RV Reviews, RV Prices, RV Values, Camper & Trailer Specs, Motorhome Value | NADAguides | NADA RV, Recreational Vehicle Appraisal Guide | NADAguides Good luck.

oh well

So the Rexhall slipped through my fingers...and my budget was just slashed in half....So we just looked at a 1995 Fleetwood Southwind Storm 30h. 7.4, 4l80, 78k. very clean...just a little chalkie on the outside (actually really nice for AZ sun!!)...nothing a little BKF and floor shine wont fix...I did find a broken front shock and mount ( bilstein too...shame)...tires all late goodyears, runs like a champ....coming from a bonded dealer...asking is 8000.....with a little work on him...I might be able to hit 6500...with some luck.....opinions?

Welcome to the group. If you look something will be just what your looking for. Just be sure to have someone who knows something about motorhomes to help you go over your interest and make sure it has been maintained. They can be expensive if it hasn't been maintained properly. Good luck.

I don't think the price is out of line. Three years ago we bought our signature rig for $36K. Similar to the one you're looking at in terms of mileage, except its a front-engined gasser.

We looked at a Rexhall (also a gasser), but the guy trying to sell it was asking too high a price and wouldn't negotiate.

I was impressed by the visible quality of the Rexhall, and our Georgetown is not as well made. If it fits your needs and is under your budget, I'd say go for it.
