Well, we are talking to the bank in the morning on a 1994 Newmar Kountry Star 37wdsk. Shouldn't be a problem on getting the loan, good credit, and especially since the NADA is much higher than asking price. $16,000. It has 41,000 miles on it. All the tires were replaced at the same time the tranny was done. 2 months ago.
The owner is downsizing to a class c. His wife refused to drive the class a. This coach is so very clean.
Just had a new tranny put in it 2,000 miles ago. (I am wanting to put a Trans command in it to help firm up the shifts.) It does have the 460 in it. Exhaust manifolds look good with no leaks or broken studs. He also added a 1600w inverter with 2 separate batteries (aside from the 2 house batteries) in the back to power the microwave, 22" lcd tv, and added stereo system in the coach while on the go. He said it was for his wife's hair drier..lol. Looks like an aftermarket kit of some kind since it has its own monitor panel in the rv.
He has taken very good care of it. It has so many options to mention, just hitting the high points. It has the G4 and L4 options added. From the brochure.* Plus a few others. Has all service records and manuals. The ships battery and house batteries are only a year old. The added inverter batteries are 2 years old.
No soft spots anywhere. Has a fiberglass roof, and all in great shape.
Took a good look at tag, drive axle, all leaf springs and suspension. All in great shape. Took it for a drive and on the interstate. Handles quite well. Even slowed down to have a Semi go by us and didn't even feel him go by. Then went and passed one to see how it felt and was no push at all. Had about a 15 mph cross wind and didn't even tell.
Hopefully we will be picking it up this Saturday. The wife is extremely happy with it as well. So, there is the jist of our searching for the last couple of weeks and we settled on this one. Right price and in much better shape than some of the newer ones we have looked at that didn't even have a slide out. Also, well within our budget we placed on our first rv.
