Newbies from Florida panhandle

Hello All. My wife and I have been considering an RV for quite some time. We have the chance to test drive a 2010 Leprechaun 31.5 SS with 10055 miles and a 2013 Thor ACE 29.2 with 11300 miles on it this weekend from the same dealer lot. Being new at this, any info on what to look for and or what to expect performance wise would be greatly appreciated. Its just us and our border collie so we don't need much room, but nice with reliability and both of us drive with comfort. We are looking forward to joining the RV world but want to be comfortable with our decision. Thank you.
Larry and Randa with Toby the Border Collie

Glad to have you here with us.

Being relatively new coaches, most problems should be out of them. If you have any concerns it is worth having it inspected by a third party.

Good luck and Happy Trails!!!!!
