[QUOTE=nancie_usa;1767743]Hello out there! California Sierra Foothills here! Hubby and I have decided to buy a used class A motor home. First we thought 15,500-20,000...wrong! Decided on gas instead of diesel...wrong! We have driven hours to check out private seller RV's. Can't seem to get two to check out in the same area! Always a little problem here, there....no big deal they say. These are obvious to the eye problems and out of our budget if we have to fix them! We are getting. Now we are thinking of going to a DEALERSHIP . Will most likely have to finance a portion.... ugh!

Any recommendations...
. Thank you all in advance! All advice welcomed.

I was actually asking for suggestions as to dealerships in our area. We are checking out a 1998 safari serengeti Xi for 44,995. DP, 48,266 miles. Hopefully we can get them down to $40,000 and some depending on what we find. This is from Cordelia RV center Fairfield CA. We are also interested in a 2002 rexall roseair 2/slide, gas for $37,495. 25,000 miles. Any suggestions on what to look for in these two choices and any pros/cons you can offer would be appreciated!

We decided on DP because hubby will be retiring in 3 years. Made this choice after reading all your comments. Thank you all again for the great comments.

Good advice to check around regarding the form,fit, function you want. Best value after considering $ , layout, quality design /construction, after purchase support.
Try to enjoy as you endure the eval/ selection process. You can have many enjoyably hours in it. They all have their challenges ,some more than others.

Some years ago we were looking at used DP's found a Safari that DW really liked the floor plan so I started poking deeper.
Found high water lines in the bays so I asked about it boing from an area that had flooded. The answer was "We don't know, we got it from another of our lots". This was a few month after flooding in some southern areas.
We left it on the lot even though it drove very well too.

I have owned several MH's over the years and now only trailers bumper pulls. Less problems less cost and insurance. I always buy used. Currently have a HR 25ft Alumscape and a Bigfoot 21RB. Depending how long we will be away and how long the trip may be, we decide which one to take.

DeMartini in Grass valley has a good reputation and quite a bit of inventory. I bought new from them in '05 and found them to be honest and easy to deal with. They let you go through their lot on your own and all the rigs are open. Their website is demartinirv.com
