A buck a mile for the driver and all other expenses plus if you use a company they take a cut. Are you really sure you can't get away for a week ? What if you became very ill couldn't do your work , job etc ? Just sayin.... Pay big bucks or not , it's a matter of if you really want it to happen

Point being, I'd have that figured out if these aren't new coaches with warranty and I weren't doing the driving myself.
Methinks the reqisterd owner of the RV is responsible for the cost of any necessary repairs... unless one has a contract stating otherwise.

That would make sense here as well. But what if you haven't taken delivery of it yet, or it arrives substantially "not as advertised"?

Do/think as you like. Just playing devil's advocate.

All great points. The liability is just too much of a risk for me at this point. Thanks for all the great advice!

Purchased a motorhome from a women 6 or 8 years ago. They flew to AZ picked it up, drove to CA and spent a month or so there. Husband got very sick and they had to fly home. They hired a service to drive the RV back to PA. He died and she had to sell it with less then 10,000 miles. I went to buy it and it turned out the the driver must have sold the brand new tires off the RV and replace with very worn used tires. Probably made themselves a couple of thousand dollars extra and really screwed the women.
