Input on possibly buying a 2000 Tahoe 5ver

Good afternoon all. After a season in our old Petersen Excel the DW and I have chosen to sell it and buy a larger 5ver with a slide and we came across a 2000 Tahoe for around $7500 which is within our budget.

Problem is I have no experience with the brand so I'm unsure if they have a reasonable build quality or not.

I would appreciate any imput your experience can offer including other suggestions to consider. We are looking at 30'ish with at least 1 slide and a budget of$10k.

Thank you and God bless

Had a 2001 Tahoe. Made by Thor. Junk in my book. They leak and get dry rot. If it has the fiberglass sides they delaminate. Luckily a tree fell on ours and insurance totaled it!!!

Not very often someone is happy a tree fell on their trailer. It must have been a really bad trailer. I appreciate the input
