We have bought 2 class A's for sub-market value, now, because of constant online searching/researching and jumping when the time is right. Using one of the all Craigslist engines (that search the Cl's nationwide) works well, as well as constantly cruising rvt.com, rvtrader.com, classifieds on enthusiast sites, big dealers like PPL, etc. etc.

You will definitely need to expect some $$ to go to repairs, maintenance, and upgrades--it's a given. If you have the magic combination of Time, Treasure, and Talent, you are well poised to be a successful older/inexpensive MH owner.

If you feel confident in your ability to determine (as well as anyone can) the condition of a coach and potential for 1) big problems and 2) good bones but smaller issues, then you'll be fine. If you don't, bring someone who does when visiting rigs for sale. And know, an inexpensive coach nearly always will take all three T's (money can be substituted for a T--especially the Talent one).

Get out there and look at rigs for sale. The more you look, the more you know what you're looking at and what you want (and don't). That momentum will make the right one come to you!
