Will be new to camping world. Never owned am/h. Looking at a 2000 holiday rambler endeavor diesel, 46,000 miles, in Florida. Tax is 3%. Out the door is $32430. Looks in great shape.

What do you think about the m/h and is it a reasonable deal? I live in Zebulon, NC. And even they agreed I should have an independent inspection.

Thanks

If its in immaculate condition, passes general inspection, please spend another $400, take it to a diesel service center you choose and have them go over the chassis, engine and tranny. Also have them do oil/tranny samples.
Otherwise Monaco/Holiday Ramblers are well built. Which chassis is it on?? If its Rr8R your good, if its RR4R than go on the Monaco owners thread on this forum and read all about possible issues

Note that in this thread it is indicated that 2000 was the last year the Endeavor/Diplomat were on the Freightliner chassis, which I agree is preferred over the RR4R.

These coaches were considered good 'bank for the buck' coaches, and were the Monaco's Entry Level DP's. (Not a bad thing, as they were also KISS.)

If the RR4R and it has had the Source Engineering fix, I'd still consider it.

But OP, also understand that their are lots of DP's available. Pick your budget, go kick several tires coaches and come up with a list that meets your needs. And as mentioned, full inspections including chassis and fluid analysis are a good move. Check and factor the age of the batteries, house and chassis, and tires date codes. And if an item is not documented with receipts, assume it has not happened, especially if from a dealer.

Happy hunting,
Smitty

Yes. 2000 is on the Freightliner XC chassis. Mine has the CAT 3126B engine, but there may have been Cummins models because the wiring diagrams show both. It is very simple compared to coaches with multiplex, aqua hot, auto leveling, power management, etc.
