Hello all , I'm a new member and joined to get some opinions.My wife and I are considering purchasing a used class A motor home.
The unit is a 2003 Jayco Avatar 3860. It has the Cat 330 engine. My concerns are that this coach has been setting 3 to 4 years with very little if any road time.The engine has only 13000 miles on it. The owner has said that he has been starting it on a regular basis.When I was there I didn't think about checking the hour meter.
With this unit setting so much I feel all the seals have dryed and I anticipate many problems.I also have been told that any engine and more so diesels are a better purchase with higher mileage than extremely low miles as in this case.
Just touching on a few of my concerns,I'm wondering how the members here feel. If anyone has an opinion on the Alvatar please share also.
I was told that jayco tested the maket of class A's and due to tough economic times got out of the class A market.
Thanks in advance for all info.
