2006 starcraft-travel-star-xp-21-rb-with 2 slideout beds

Hello, We are in the process of buying our 1st hybrid. I'm going to look at a 2006 starcrart xp-21-rb with 2 slideout beds. I'm really new at this and would love some options.

I'm going to assume you mean opinions in what to look for in a used unit.

Being a 10 year old RV trailer, first and foremost one needs to check for outer wall "de-lam" and rotted floors. Check inside the lower storage spaces for soft flooring. Another place to check is under the hinge of the bunk doors. Inside the RV check the area around the bunk door hinges for soft spots. Water is going to be a RV's worst enemy.

As far as what specs. A plus is if the hot water tank runs on both electric and gas and has direct spark ignition called (DSI). Most are standard now, but 10 years ago most were an option. It allows you to just flick a switch to start the hot water heater on gas or electric rather than having a manual gas only one where you had to go out and light it everyone you wanted to use it. Also a fresh water tank over 35 gallons is good over 40 even better. Some only have 25 gallon tanks. Our 05' hybrid had a 47 gallon and our current hybrid has a 53 gallon fresh. Important if you plan to stay for a week at a place without full service.

just to clarify, hybrid beds don't "slideout" like popup beds.
they drop down like a ramp.

since you live in AZ, invest in Popup Gizmos for the tops of the tent ends and Reflectix in the tent windows.
this will help in hotter and colder temps and help the a/c keep it cool.
