thank you Rider99 I was just looking at the Warranty offers on this site. Do you recommend this service for a used RV ?

We bought our first RV in 1997. We had been looking for a small Class C, my wife wanted the smallest available, she was scared to get a bigger one. Luckily when she was out of town I bought a new 31' Class C at auction but I got a great deal on it, dealer cost (he showed me). We kept the Class C for 11 years before buying our current coach, a 38' Class A DP.

WE decided we wanted to trade up and started looking, we went to RV shows, stopped at RV lots, and went to look at numerous used ones. We got lucky and found a really nice used "repo" in Florida. Got it for a great price, still probably worth 80% of what we paid for it 6 years later.

The advantages of a larger Class A is space and storage. The advantage of a DP is usually associated with power, towing and carrying capacity. The advantage of buying a nicer unit is the amenities, all the comforts of home.

Good luck on your decision

I do recommend a warranty on used based on what I looked at from private sellers or dealers. Shop around for your best coverage and price. Just my opinion for some peace of mind. Good luck.

Thank you everyone for your great advice and support!

Thank you all, I truly feel I found a fantastic community to sound ideas off of and ask advice. I will thoroughly review and make notes to research all the great leads given in this thread. I think we are looking at a Gas Class A for sure and towing a Honda CRV if possible for a dinghy. Sure love the washer dryer feature but only find this option in the 35' models. Does anyone have any suggestions for a shorter Class A with this feature? Will absolutely look at used RVS and the Warranty services. Watching lots of RV tours on Youtube videos.
Still liking the Jayco Precept 35UN but just kicking tires yet.

Good luck with your search .... take your time and look at everything ...
Lots to choose from out there .... floorplan is most important when considering FT IMO

It's a matter of what you want to give up. 35 ft is about the shortest they can find the extra couple of feet for a W/D combination without leaving out the closet, shower, or refrigerator. ;-) That is a nice looking unit.
