Prospective Rexhall buyer

Hey there,

Wondering about quality of late 80's or early 90's Rexhall motorhomes. Just sold an early 90's Bounder.

What can you tell me? Fairly newe in motorhoming, but learning.

Thanks, Kenn

Rexhall was/is an innovator in motorhome design and has pioneered many new designs, e.g. the full wall slide. They are a small manufacturer and sell factory direct, so no dealer support. Of course, you aren't going to get much support for an early 90's vintage anything, so that probably doesn't make any difference.

With any RV of that age, condition and previous maintenance makes all the difference in the world. If this is a well maintained unit in good condition - and it suits your needs - I would say buy it. If not, forget it. You don't want to have problems with an old coach that was built only in very small volumes, cause nobody knows anything about it.

We had a 1997 Rex Air and it was a great coach. We traded it only because we wanted slides. We went on trips up to 3 months with it and had very few problems.

We purchased a Rexhall Rolls Air this past spring. So far so good. It appears to be well built and handles quite well. When I read the threads on this site I see any and all makes have their problems so like previously mentioned --- if you like it ----buy it!

We have owned two Rexhalls, a 2000 and a 2008. Rexhall is a small company and we have met Bill Rex twice, and he works hard to build a strong motorhome with a good workable floorplan. We have owned four motorhomes and Rexhall is hard to beat for the money. If your wife likes the floorplan,it has been well maintained, and you like the chassis go for it.

We had a 2003 - 36 ft Rexhall american Clipper DP. Wife loved the floor plan. It was terrible to drive. Wandered all over the road. Always drove it about 55 MPH as it just wasn't stable over 55. Spent money on new tires, shocks, sway bars and true steering device, all to no avail. The rexhall was on a Spartan Chassis. we had electrical problems and rexhall was NOT helpful. person I spoke to at rex spoke spanish and I don't. was told the engineer who could really be helpful was parking chassis in the back lot. We gave up and sold the unit. We did not consider buying another Rexhall, nor would we recomend buying one. About 1/2 the Rexhall onwers in the SEA (So rexhall owners) have either sold their units our purchased other brands. ed
