Well after sorting out how to buy we are now looking seriously for a Class A around 32ft to be managemabe and MUST HAVE a slide out. We want a really good quality and LOW mileage self contained RV. But which one. Considering Gulfstream Independance or Georgetown or ?????? We want a 2006 on model and top spec which is ready to travel in winter. Fulltime RVing is the requirement.
Has anyone good source to buy a Repo? We know that reposessions are becoming more avialable. We can travel US wide but will start off in California so any good rv dealers you can recommend?? Spend upto $70,000 but what about something a bit older and a lot less? Thanks all!

You should also consider Tiffin and Newmar products. A good used coach may actually have all the bugs worked out and be a better buy. Good luck and keep us posted.

This may sound a little "crazy" but, I bought my MH off of Ebay. Saved a lot and right now may be a good time to look. The new models are coming out and I am sure that there are dealers out there that need to "clean up" their floor plan lines to allow room for the new models. I caught a dealer that needed the room and he sold me my unit for $100.00 over what he had in it --- the price was $65,000.00 below the listed blue book price. Don't know if you will be as lucky as I was but, if I were looking today, I would check out Ebay. A lot of dealers in Arizona use Ebay for listing units -- not that far away from you.

Go back to the start page and look at the IRV2 Classifieds. There are two Winnie 02's Diesels asking $85 and $80. Looks good. Make um an offer and see what happens. s/Toby

Check this out:

crankyape.com

They have several nice units on auction all the time. Most are bank repos.

PORTWINE,
my advise is to buy as new a model as you can afford. make sure all the systems work and that it has been serviced regularly. remember that cash is king right now. 30% off sticker price on new mohos is common. used is similar. i called the good sam club to get the wholesale price on the moho that i was considering buying. i made an offer below that.
i bought my moho from a sick elderly couple almost 2yrs ago. it only had 7.8k miles on it. it had been in storage for a long time, but it was clean and looked good. what can go wrong in 5 years and 7.8k miles? a lot.
i bought it because it was where i was located and i got a really good price on it. it has been a lot of work. i think i am about to get a handle on the systems and get them up to snuff.
i purchased the workhorse manual on cd and there is a lot of winnie stuff on the internet. winnies come with an owners briefcase that has been some help.
this website has been a tremendous help.

Some good advice. Now we will consider upto $100K!! dont know how we managed to keep going up.....any thoughts on a 36ft Alfa See Ya Founder? I like the look and interior but now theyve gone under I have read some horror stories on quality issues. Ebay does appear to have some sensible pricing. Dolphin is another possibility?

Don't know if this will influcence you or not but, the financial reliability of the manufacturer might come into play at this time also. I know that Winnebago is in good health -- good retained earnings, cash reserves, and low debt.

I would look at Tiffin Allegro 32BA in either gas or diesel. Check out La Mesa RV in Davis and San Bernadino. They are having going out of business sales at those locations.

I've heard nightmare stories since Alfa went out of business as well . . . met a guy in Salt Lake that just bought one before the factory closed and now he has had to purchase an extended warranty because he has no warranty on his very expensive and beautiful RV. It was a 2007 brand new and he's had one problem after another. Of course, bugs in new RV's are expected I guess. There are some great deals through PPL right now online. Do a websearch for RV dealers going out of business - they are all over the place. Craig's list in major cities is also a great resource.

www.craigslist.com

You can look at every major city in the U.S.

Have you checked the classifieds here at IRV2? Find them here. Also you might care to look at the classifieds at TVRN. Both have some listings in the category you are look. Happy Hunting!
