You will probably have a few regrets in the next few months, but I (and you) don't believe the deal was bad so you will manage the regrets. As athuddriver, I have regrets from my 2011 purchase. I still think I got a good deal and took dealer to about his best, but I was a little hasty and excepted things I am sorry for now (example--queen when wanted a king....carpet where tile would have been better in living area, table/chairs when booth was preferred, etc). Botton line now is to go enjoy and have fun. Congratulations!

At this point in time IF you are satisfied with the deal you made, that's all that matters. The best advise given was to "Ask all these questions before" the deal and now you know that. There are many facets in looking for a RV and they are not all about the $$. Carmax is just the starting point, it gives information the dealer will never share usually. From the roof A/C to the tires they need to be inspected and so many stop with just the appearence, the miles and the $$.
Welcome to the Group and enjoy your new Coachman.

I was worried about genny too with only 77 hours on it i believe it was, but I ran both ac's and turned on all lights and it ran fine, plus it starts fast when you hit switch so i am not as worried any more..
And as far as the warrenty I got it for 1/3 of the starting cost with 100 buck deductable I really was just worried about the big price items so for 4 years i feel a lil better.. You guys are great, thank you... reading this site made me aware of what to be worried about and what to look for.... I owe you all a beer if we ever camp at the same spot
Hey....have fun with your new purchase. Suggest you read the EW very very carefully and fully understand how it works...what it covers...what it doesn't...and any "qualifiers" that apply. I'd also take a real good look at the "tire thing". I personally would not accept 3yr old "used" tires. Take a moment and consider how important tires are to you & your families "safety". I'd have the Dealer give me a credit for the used tires and I'd buy some NEW ones! This just doesn't smell right to me.

I did the above, I did not like the look of the used tires, sooo i got the dealer to give me an at cost for brand new tires, about 1580 for 6 new coopers installed. not the best deal, but we love the rv, just got back from 5 day trip. We did find a bunch of little problems that we called the dealer about (30 day warranty) before the 4 yr warr. kicks in. They can not get me in for a few weeks but I had my lawyer write it all up for me so I am sure they will cover it all, the service dept. guy actually seemed to get a little scared when i told him, which was after he told me 25 days b4 they can get me in. (btw... I pay like 6 bucks a week for this lawyer package my union offers so its all free for me) didnt want you all to think i went out and hired a lawyer lol...
My wife actually said "lets sell the house in 10 yrs and buy a 40+ ft big boy and live in that.. we are going next 3 weekends for 4 day trips, I plan on keeping it out until oct here in wny so that i can test the tank heaters to make sure they work in the cold...
That beer is on me remember, camping next weekend at skyline rv park fri sat sun mon.. right outside attica ny...

"I just do not want a bad deal as we are going to buy a brand new a in 10-15 years for retirement...."

In 10-15 years, almost any used rig you buy today will be worth less than 10% of its original MSRP. Any bad deal will be resolved by then and not affect your next decision unless you finance the current rig for 15 years or more.

We lovvveee our new home away from home, so far we have been out 4 times for a total of 17 out of like the 32 days we have had it. We do have a list of small problems that the dealer is going to look at next week, the two biggest being I believe it needs new shocks or maybe a sway bar (i did not see one ) as there is a lot of body roll in turns. The second thing is my main slide sags, even if coach is 100% level slide sags outward. I will see what they say next week..
Plus I decided to store my new baby indoors over the winter which i never did with my camper, what a pain to find a place.... but i found a place 5 mins from my house that charges 2.25 a ft so about 75 bucks a month for indoor storage, it is a huge steel building with concrete floors not heated which would have been nice, but i am happy to keep the 6 feet of snow off of it..
We cant wait for next year, planning trips already...
