new guy from ohio

Hi, my names Chris. This weekend if all goes well I will be purchasing a keystone everest thats at a seasonal campground with intent to leave it there, at least for another two years. Its a 2006 and from what I remember from seeing it a month ago is in visual really good condition with a bunch of extras.

Anyone have any advise what a unit like that usually sells for used? I'm pretty sure its a 345s model. Its a 40' and has 4 slide outs. Anything I should look for in specific or ask or question before I hand the seller the check? This is all new to me. My girlfriends family has campers and I'm sure after the purchase they can help with things, but as far as buying goes need some solid tips. Thanks Chris

Do a complete inspection of all appliances and systems. Make sure they all work as intended, if not, have the seller explain or discount the price. Check for evidence of leaks on walls, under windows, and the roof. A leak can damage an RV faster than a leak in a regular house because of the building materials, also mold or mildew can make the RV dangerous to inhabit. You said you're going to let it stay in place for two years, but I'd still check the age of the tires.


In general, an RV's tires 'age' out before they wear out. Anything over 6-7 years old needs replacement for safety. If they are original tires from 2006, they are too old and need replacing before moving the RV. If they have been replaced, will they still be good in 2 years?
