Opinion please of Holiday Rambler Navigator

Does anyone have a holiday rambler navigator or have any experience with one? We looked at a 2006 today and really liked the floor plan, fit/finish and more importantly the way it drove. 500 hp Cummins engine, Allison tranny and Road master chassis...41,016 miles. Looks like new.... Would love to hear anyone's experience!!!

Good luck with your purchase. Motorhomes share common components made by the same manufacturers. If the floor plan and pricing works for you, go for it. I would advise an extended warranty. I have bought one on all my RV's and have been glad we did.

All the best

Totally enjoying our 2009 bath & 1/2. For the few questions I've had, Monaco support has been very helpful. Bob

Thanks!!! We are getting closer on a decision. The only stumbling block for DH is the coach has had 5 owners!!!! We will be #6. The last owner bought it in April of this year. Just a bit curious as to how and why it changed hands so much. Dealer isn't very forthcoming with details either... Of course we will do an extensive PDI.. But....

A friend just sold a 2007 (estate sale) and he bought it new and drove it 67,000 mi full timing until health issues took over. I drove it the first month he owned it and could find no issues driving it. Do a good PDI, check everything yourself down to drawers working and all faucets etc. If you don't know what to look for hire your own inspector who knows what he is doing. All old (used) units will have some issues You just don't want any big ones to pop up in 2 weeks. Good luck hope it works out for you.

Maybe it had driveability issues. I would suggest a good 150-200 mile test drive. Even if you have to buy some fuel it would be well worth it IMHO. Also, you would have time to monitor all the gauges to look for heating issues. Could also watch the instant fuel mileage readout. The more things you check, the less surprises later...Bob

Good advice!! As well check all appliances and electronics.
It just may be that the five previous owners had health problems or it just did not suit them.
I have an older Imperial and it is a step or two down and we love the quality of the build. The Navigator would be my next upgrade or dream coach.
Good luck.
