New guy from Indiana

Hello,

New guy here from Indiana and just purchased my first camper, a Winnebago Vectra 31 foot on a Chevy Chassis. It was too good to pass up and i hope that it holds true and it does not take a ton of money from the get go. Gentleman passed away and after three years of it barley being used they are selling. Biggest issues I see are the vinyl headliner is sagging all the way thru which appears to be a issue for these models and the coach batteries are missing. They owned a equipment company and an employee used them in a piece of machinery.

I currently have a 48" LQ race trailer that we race out of but its entirely to low and long to get into the local camping areas so I made the switch to this and I will buy a smaller trailer to pull behind it.
