Vista 2008 30 K About to buy

HELP. I'm looking at a Vista 30K for me and my wife. No kids no pets. I need some owners advise. The price seems right. 6000 miles. I have owned motorhomes before and the one main problem is over weight on the rear axle and they bounce up and down from incoreect weight distribution. Please give me some feedback if you own one. It's been a long time since I owned one--1984. thanks onholdguy--please email direct to joe1234@ameritech.net

Is it an 2009? The Workhorse W16 chassis was an option and it has a 1000 lb heavier rear axle than the Ford F53 chassis under the same coach.

But the newer small A's generally have an adequate chassis under them - a chassis designed from the ground up to carry an RV. That wasn't the case back in 1984. That doesn't mean the late model chassis cannot be improved in ride and handling, but they are far, far better than what you may remember.
