The first was sold in order to get one with AC and built in gen. The second was sold to get a MH because that is what my wife wanted. I was perfectly happy with the TC.

These things will require maintenance over time whether bought new or used, sometimes significant maintenance. Nothing stays new forever.

Just my 2c.


I agree but on maintenance. I choose to ensure that by starting from new. I have little faith in most owners taking care of things like I would. That costs more, of course. I accept that.
