Thoughts on Purchase Candidates
This is probably not the usual request for information and comments, but here is the invitation anyway.
We are looking to buy a used DP, probably in the 03 to 08 model years, although something slightly older in a higher end coach might work as well. We want 32 to 36 feet with at least 2 slides, maybe three. The budget is $80k to $120k. Looking over the major Internet RV listing websites, here are the names that are popping up. The invitation is for those that have these rigs to express their enthusiasm, their unhappiness, and heads up warning about some aspect/condition/equipment of these rigs. All these rigs are 03,04,05,06,07, or 08:
Winnebago Journey 36G and 32T / Itasca Meridian 36G
Monaco Cayman 36PDQ / La Palma 36WBD / Windsor 36 PST / Knight 36PDD
Holiday Rambler Neptune 36 PDD / Ambassador 34 PDD / Endeavor 36TS / Vacationer 34PDD
Fleetwood Expedition 34 M / Discovery 35H / Bounder 34H
Newmar Kountry Star 34 and 36 PDD / Ventana 3331
National Tropi-cal T350
Gulf Stream Crescendo 8356 CRE / Yellowstone 8359
Forest River Tsunami 3508QS
ALFA See Ya 36D / Founder 35 LS
Damon Astoria 3465
Safari 36 PDQ / Simba 34 SBD
Also seeing for a little more money ($150k), all 36 ft. rigs: National Pacifica, Tiffin Phaeton, Beaver Monterey, Western RV Alpine, Gulf Stream Friendship.
In advance, thanks for your time and comments.
