Soon to be owner in Mo

Hello everyone. Going today to see about a loan on a 2002 Winnebago Journey DL. Would love any comments/suggestions as this is my first MH. It has 53,000 miles and 1200 hours on genset. Drives great, tires are original (will replace). Only problem I could find was cracks in shower enclosure and some other minor problems. It has the 330 Cat and Allison 6 speed. Should I be scared? Buying from an individual.

I would pay the money to get it inspected by an independent RV Technician and use his report for bargainging. Also be a good idea to check all of his engine and chassis maintenance records to see if the work was done on schedule. No records, I think I would pass on it.

As for price, check www.nadaguides.com. Practically RVs are going fro the low end of the low reatils, in good condition. Do not use any add on options to determine the price. With the age of the tire, I would deduct a set of tires from the price.

If it is really of interest, take it on a LONG drive, 30 miles or so and get it up to freeway speeds to see if it handles OK as well as some city driving.

Glad you joined us on iRV2.

Ken

TXiceman - thanks for the info. They are in a remote area so finding an RV tech is going to be tough but a great idea.

You want to be sure that every system is 100% go before you sign over the money.
