As an example, mines coming up for sale. It has almost 1 1/2yrs. left on an unlimited mileage extended service plan that's transferable. It has ALL maint records, many, many upgrades and it's going to be a lot less than $60K.

So, if you decide to buy a legacy RV, just be aware that the systems in it are getting on in age, and won't last forever. When it happens, and it will, you will face a repair/replacement situation which will be, at best, inopportune and inconvenient, and, at worst, impossible, when replacement parts are unavailable.
Think of older RVs like you'd think of the best autos, boats or planes that are 15-25 years old. Something is always going to need adjusting, repairing or replacing, no matter the brand name on the front cap.

Secondly, technology changes, and mostly for the better. How bad do you want a 20 year old refrigerator, or air system, or wiring, or roof?

FWIW, I have a 1994 Land Cruiser and a 2004 Sequoia Limited. It's a real education to see the advances from 10 years in both units (both Toyota products). While it's a pleasure to be able to work on the LC, I'll take the Sequoia most of the time. They are both the same miles, but newer seems more reliable.
