Hello all,

We're looking at possibly purchasing a 19 foot 1989 Coachman Class B, and we're seeking advice concerning a fair purchase price. We don't know that much about Class B rigs, and we wanted to get some advice from those who have "been there, done that".

The Coachman that we are looking at has the Ford 351 V8 engine, with 76396 miles on the clock. The chassis is the E-250. It has the "usual" Class B amenities such as: Two AC units (one dash, one coach), power window/door locks, cruise control, two gas tanks, automatic transmission, 3-way refrigerator/freezer, 2-burner gas stove, water heater, Thetford toilet, tub/shower, stainless steel kitchen sink, fresh water/grey/black holding tanks, LP furnace, 2.8 Onan genset, overhead bunk, sofa converts into a bed, microwave oven, 600 Watt power inverter.

Given the normal wear and tear that would be expected on a 1989 Class B, what would be a fair price? Any particular problems with this type/brand of rig? Things to look for while checking the rig out? Any advice will be highly appreciated.

Tom, you can log on to NADA Guides and check the low and high retail values for a large number of RV's.
