This 2001 MOTORHOME listed on eBay is within 15 minutes of our home. We have only seen it by the eBay photos ...all really looks good there. Maybe a few of you out there can give some input as to what you think its value might be. Even though it is a 2001 model, the low mileage and other specs gives me the impression it is just at the break-in stage. Right now, I am at the high bid (NW-Guy) but I don't know how far to take it from here. Your comments, advice, etc., will be much appreciated.

Its a nice looking unit. When we decided on going the MH route we looked at a lot of used units. One I had my heart set on was a 2003 Itasca 35u on a workhorse.Had 17000 miles and they would not settle for less than $84,000.That was last Nov.I am on the east coast,dont know if it makes a differance or not.Your bid sounds reasonable to me , from what I have seen.

I'm not quite sure the seller knows exactly which chassis it's built on. Listed are Workhorse and Roadmaster but it has the Ford engine and VIN. I would ask for a double check of the VIN and clarification.

I note in the description the motorhome is supposed to have "True Air" which is a basement ac unit, yet he mentions the unit on the roof in the rear of the motorhome. The one on the roof should be unneccessary, unless the True Air has died and they replaced it with a cheaper roof unit. A single roof air on that size rig will probably not be adequate.

I would suggest a thorough personal inspection before placing a serious bid on that rig.

There are too many errors in the description on Ebay to make any decision to bid. The most obvious ones are the numerous conflicting statements about the chassis and powertrain. It cannot be a Ford-Workhorse-Roadmaster or even any combination of those. Roadmaster, for example, is a diesel chassis found only in the Monaco brands. And I can assure you its not a Workhorse either, since the VIN would start with "5B4..." is it was. Clearly the seller has no idea exactly what it is he is selling, making the whole description suspect. And the verbage copied from the Itasca website is generic for several different models and not all of it will apply to this one. The pictures clearly show roof air rather than basement too.

Since it's close by to you, go look and make sure you learn the truth about the chassis,a/c and every feature and option this coach supposedly has. It may still be reasonably priced.

I would say that $55,000 was around the market price for a private sale on nicely equipped 2001 35 footer. $65,000 would be top dollar, in my opinion. I'll sell you my 2002 Dolphn LX (which really is on a Workhorse chassis) for $69,900!

For my $0.02, I reviewed the photos and after looking at them it has a Ford Steering Wheel so I am assuming it is on a Ford Chassis. I also look's like it has basement Air, as the photos do not show what would appear to be roof airs and there is a large vent on the right rear corner.

As stated peviously there are too many errors in the description to trust anything that is advertised.My opinion is to keep looking...
