MH help

Hello to all, I have sold my 2007 5th wheel an 2006 Ford F-350 4x4 DRW
We are now looking for a 40' MH we would like some input and hints.
This might be a bit much to ask for.
Thank you
Dave & Melinda

Hi Dave and Melinda,
You came to the right place to gather info before you buy!
I'm sure you will get plenty of advice, but perhaps some more info may help.
Are you shopping for a new or used MH?
Do you have a preference for diesel or gas?
Is there a price range you would like to stick to?
Good luck and have fun shopping for your new motor home.

Craigslist is a great source for pre-owned private party RV's and bank repo RV's.

Depending on your budget, even a repo 40ft with 15K miles will be well over 100K. You can bid on Cranky Ape but many units go unsold as the reserve is not met.

Hi stardust06,
Welcome to iRV2. Floor plan sells the coach. That being said, iRV2 has a classifieds section with coaches for sale. Go to Class A Motorhomes - RV & Motorhome Classifieds and take a look.

I know of two Newmar coaches that are for sale. Both are Florida coaches, very low mileage and professionally maintained. Both are being sold for health reasons. If you would like more details, PM me.

Stardust06,

Here are a few things that need to be set in priority if you approach this the way we did. And like you, we went from a 5er to our mh and wanted to make it our 1st and last decision on the right one. So, consider this:
1. Will you be an occasional weekender or do serious travel? Serious in my definition is 12K miles per year or more.
2. Do you want luxury (creature comforts) or basics?
3. Will you be able to or want to do as much of the maintenance on the mh yourself?
4. How long do you expect to keep it before selling or trading?

One thing for sure, after you buy, you will always see something bigger, better, and wish you would have. So get what you want the first time around and save yourself a ton of money.

If you want to know why we took this approach pm me and I'll give you more details.

Dave

Howdy,

My husband and I looked for several months before we bought a coach we looked at Country Coach, Monaco, Journey, Blue Bird and foretravel then we narrowed it down to two coaches a Foretravel or Country Coach... My husband and I went back to look at the two and we decided that we were goign to go with the U320C M11-450 Foretravel. After having our coach now for almos a month we are very proud of our decision I would RECOMMENDED U320C Foretravel to anybody.

Best of luck in your decision

Another thing you might want to monitor is the owners forums for the different brands. One example is this one TiffinRVNetwork The Tiffin RV Network is owned and operated by owners of Tiffin RV's and is not controlled by the dealers or Tiffin. If you Google the other brands you will find most of them have their own forums.

Good Luck,
Jon
