Its not the end of the world if you change your mind a few years later. Lots of people want larger or smaller in time. Sounds like a good deal, have it checked by a specialist first. Get a Good Sam coverage or similar for a few years. You will be set to go!! Time does not stand still. My very healthy SIL just suddenly passed away two months before retirement....like I said, go for it, and relax....

Great points. Husband is 42 today. I'm 38 in August. We don't plan on retiring fully anytime soon but I don't want to not have had fun in case something happens. When he leaves the military he always assumed he'd do a second career.....I've never been anywhere long enough to work towards a retirement myself. .)

Yes it sure sound like buyers remorse to me. You might even have it after you bought what you wanted (I know I did). Just get out and enjoy it. You might have some breakdowns but don't let that break you down.

There are no great deals that you cant walk away from. A friend of a friend, wouldnt peak my interest in the slightest bit. These babies are expensive and expensive to repair.

We are going to look at it tomorrow at 2. We have ruled out the TT. I want to pull my Jet Ski's or a boar or motorcycles down the road.

Before we go we are going to look at a few local dealerships to see a lot then sit down and make s decision.

Even if we don't buy this weekend I want to decide what to buy. I am so tired of trying to be objective and reasonable, I just want to travel and Camp!

DW and I have been married for 28 years. I retired in 1999 at 51 but kept working till she could retire.
In 2008 she put in her retirement papers, that same week her daughter died and left us two grandkids to raise so she kept working.
Decided to trade our perfectly fine and well kept '02 Dutch Star 40' MH for the one in my sig. last Feb.
Three months later she was diagnosed with HCC (hepatocellular carcinoma) or liver cancer.
Now our future is uncertain as is her life.
So I say get out there and LIVE while you can as you never know what the future holds.

We had a MH that was sufficient but I am always looking at the market and the latest and greatest. We knew that in the next 5-7 years we would buy a larger, nicer, hopefully DP to improve our experience. We stumbled upon a coach that we purchased significantly below wholesale. It was trade-in at a local dealer that we had recently visited for fun. The dealer had sold numerous new coaches at a large regional RV show and had a glut of trade-ins. We were fortunate to be able to jump on the opportunity and pick up a great coach for $25k-$30k below market value.

Being current on the market values and doing the research was very helpful in allowing us to identify the opportunity and make an informed decision. We were confidant that even if we ended up not liking the coach, we could sell it for break even or even a potential profit. Turns out that we love it and may never buy another coach.

In addition to "book" value, also take a look at what that brand and model are advertised for on RV Trader, e-bay, etc.

Good luck with your decision!!
