I should note the used one I looked at did have the bunk option and I think that drives higher demand/value than the option cost (around $3k I think) would imply.

It all comes back to what you can afford. If I had the money to spend I would buy new
and not have to worry about the lost value next year, or the year after. My wife and I
choose to retire early and the 30ft Hurricane (no slides) we used for camping is no longer
good for full timing it. We just bought our 40ft 2005 Damon Escaper (4 slides) used for $99,000.00 with 22,000 miles on it. I think we got a great deal and value!

And you will likely find that they don't cover the "house" portion of a motorized RV, only the chassis and then only for safety problems.
Probably not any portion of a non-motorized RV although there will be some states that do cover them.
Been there, done that!

We went with new.

I intend to keep it, so resale value was not an issue.

At this stage in my life, I am not interested in rebuilding, replacing, or redecorating - I have a stick house that can use that attention.

Lastly, being new to RVing, I just wanted to know it {should} work from the get go as far as the heating, electric, plumbing, and safety issues.

I would definitely consider used for the second one, but opted for new with warranties for the first one.
