Been lurking for a while....and just pulled the trigger!

What have I done!!

All kidding aside, just made a deal for what I hope will be a good starter rig.
We wanted to get our feet wet ( weekends etc..)and not spend a ton...and make sure the coach was in good enough shape to not consume every weekend with repairs, and have enough equity to be able to get out of it quick if need be.....and still be even money.

So a 1995 Rexhall Aerbus XL2900. One owner, 46k, generac 5k, P32, and dual A/C's.

Needs tires (still deciding that one)
Rear brakes are about 40% (fronts like new)
Found a leak on one of the jacks ( to be determined...line or seal)
Needs full chassis servicing ( engine, tranny, diff)
All new batts (interstates)
Awnings function...but a bit weathered.

So fingers crossed, going to pick it up tomorrow morning and have "class" with the salesman on the systems.

Pics to come!

What have I done!!!!

You sound like me five months ago, welcome to world of fast learning, Murphy's law, and research, but it's all fun. Just laugh at the small stuff

Congratulations on your new endeavor! You will find the small things will always come up. Even with a new coach I am sure the small things will keep me busy. That is just part of owning a "home" on wheels. As said previously you have pulled the trigger on a new beginning that will be full of fun and travel. Wishing you all the best. Safe Travels!

Sometimes the cameras function a little oddly. It maybe set to function only when shifted to reverse, which puts another system in play that could be faulty.
