First time buyer

I have been looking for an RV and after a lot of research and thought (Class C, Class A, diesel, gas, etc) I have decided on a Class A diesel pusher. Not going to spend a lot on this first purchase ($30k) because I'm not sure whether this will be my wife's cup of tea. What I have found so far is that for that price I am going to get a 16-17 year old RV with around 50,000 miles. I would really like some advice or suggestions from those of you have some experience with this. Glad to be a part of the group!!

To get an idea of good prices on used Diesel Pushers, I would go to PPL motorhomes in the diesel section. Here's a link. You are being redirected... You might want to sort by price for an easier look.

It may not be close to you but it should give you some ideas.

Welcome aboard,
We have been trailer campers for a long time, Like you I did a lot of research and looking at the Class A and C and decided to go with the Class A gas (came across a deal I couldn't say no to) as I am able to do the repairs and being our first like you I didn't want to spend a lot on our first. As stated above PPL is a good place to look.
Good luck on your venture.
