What do yall think about this one for our first RV?

Many thanks to everyone who has helped me so much on here

What do yall think about this 5er for our first rv, stayed in many never owned one.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/295BH...1%7C240%3A1308

Is it the really nice Big Horn or Open Range that we were looking at? NO

Will it suit our current needs and does it have plenty of room for the family? YES

Is it affordable? YES

Will it last as long as the others? Prob not but i take very good care of my things.

Anyway it will do just fine for what we really need now. Also we can learn from it and figure out what we dont like. It has a great bunk room for the kids, with their own door. 2 slides.. Plus it is affordable for us and we wont be in some $40K 5er that maybe down the road we dont like so much.

let me know what u think

Looks like it is ready to become part of the family.

I too wondered what the deal was with the seller blanking out not only the model name but the manufacter name too. And nowhere in the write-up did they mention these names, just the model numbers. Very curious, no?

its a PUMA

just like many companies have retail limits, if you sell their product you are only allowed to sell it at a set limit. if they advertise below that price they cant reviel the brand.

a lot of companies do that. when i was looking into openin up my own diesel shop almost all had limits (lowest price) that you could sell stuff depending on what level you were.

well the $18,210 turned into $23,800 real fast.........the killer is $2K for delivery. so i got to thinking heck for that much i can get a pretty good used 5er. I found these 2 (well many others but i like these 2)
