I think sandman must have had a bad experience with PPL. As I said earlier, I have a tt on the lot now in Houston. When you bring something in, they'l tell you they do not do a mechanical inspection. Only visual inspection and collect information provided by the seller. Yes. They will sell some poor units, but the price should reflect what they know. One person's "crap" is another person's treasure. Remember, they don't make any money until they sell it! So it's in their best interest to price it fairly. It's the buyer's responsibility to dig deeper and have it inspected. Who buys a house by just walking through it one time? Some people do it, and often regret not getting a home inspection. My tt is rated "like new" because it's a 2015 and only been used a couple times. We're selling it through PPL because we feel they will sell it faster, and therefore, we can start looking for a MH. I'll take a hit on what I get for it, but at this point in life, my time is more important.

By all means, if you can visit the site do so. They will give you a list of where the units are located and you can look on your own without any pressure from a salesman. (Actually, it's hard to find a salesman. They're not standing at the door waiting for you like some places.) If you see something you like, take it for a test drive. DW and I did (with a salesman for insurance purposes). Call ahead if you know what you want to test drive so they can dig it out of the stack and have it ready for you. If you still like it, get it inspected. After that, it's all about negotiating the price. What my tt is listed for is not what I'll settle for. Good luck!

Exactly! PPL does not own the RVs, they consign them. To expect them to disclose every problem when few, if any, private individuals or used dealership will not do the sMe for the RVs that they actually own is unreasonable. I think the point of contention is PPL's rating system. I can understand how that can be problematic. However, I prefer PPL's system (as flawed as it might be) instead of a dealer claim that "this is a nice RV."

We have had excellent service during purchase and the service after from BYoung RV in Portland Oregon. We live in Minnesota and will certainly give them our next purchase even though 1500 miles away. Kevin the sales manager (our former salesman) takes care of you as if family..even 2 years later we keep in contact...That type of customer service is very hard to find. I would suggest talking to Kevin before traveling to PPL.

PPL

We purchased a unit at PPL in Houston a few years back. We have been very pleased with the RV we bought. The good once go fast and the questionable units linger, as many has mentioned.

There is no way I would purchase an RV without personally seen it inside out. I have to say that "smell" is one huge factor to these second hand units, and without having been inside the RV you are interested in, you can set yourself up for a big disappointment.

So as far as PPL goes, they sell plenty of units to fair price, but you got to go there to see what you are purchasing... my $0.02
