We would never buy new because we can have a lot more coach for the money. We bought an extended service contract from Good Sams just to be sure.
Let someone else pay the HUGE depreciation hit. And, finding one with brand new tires and only 13,000 miles on a 2004 was great.

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

We bought a used 2011 Coachmen Freelander which had 2700 miles on it. It has been great (knock on wood) - we figured the previous owners took care of all the problems that seem to pop up. We did get an extended warranty - felt it was a good idea after reading about all the issues that can come with these rigs.

Well, somebody has to buy new or else there would be no used units out there! I bought a 2007 Itasca in 2010, that had 6000 miles on it, no slides. This year I found a new 2010 with 3 slides and a great price. There is something to be said for being the guy who gets to use it the first time, and break it in, and fix the little things that need fixed. I'll take good care of it, somebody will be getting a great 2010 in 2025!

200,000 for a 'low-end' mh? BOY am I out classed! I spent 4k on an '88 Allegro, depleted my piggy bank by another 3k for tires, registration/title, ins for a year, and a new fuel pump. 31000 miles, drives well, sleeps well, tv/dvds watch just fine. Stove does great breakfasts, love my coffee in the morning, and visit my 65000 acres preserve at the end of my street 2 or 3 times each month. I guess I'm easy to please. Didn't need to buy 'low-end' to be happy.
