Mileage Question

We are currently looking at a 2005 Winnebago Adventurer 35U workhorse chassis, it's in good condition inside and out. One concern is the mileage, it has 85,000 miles on it. Looking for opinions on the mileage. Is this too high? Any opinions would be appreciated.

No, not if was taken care of. That engine will do 200K easily.

I would rather have (and did buy) a well maintained unit with higher mileage than one that has been sitting (no use) with low mileage.

I would expect a huge discount because of the mileage. Not afraid of the miles personally but the next buyer will be looking at a lot of miles for the age so be sure you get a discount too. Ask a local dealer what it would be worth on trade, ask like you already own the rig, and compare to asking. Good luck!

I have 60,000 on my 2013 Bus and feel it's just hitting it's stride. All depends on how it's been taken care of. I do all my own maintenance and KNOW mine is in better shape than a new one just off the production line. It takes a while to work out all the kinks.
