Yep, First Class A

I've owned a few pull behind trailers to include a toy hauler and finally grew up. Just took delivery of a 2008 Winnabego Chalet 30BR and realize it was a rental. Purchase price was 14K under NADA wholesale with no adds so I couldn't pass it up. A day before new years. Inspection went well, no problems noted, good rubber, engine and transmission and everything works. I will need to replace the flooring and possibly recover the couch and dinette but everything else is great.

Guess I'd like to know if anybody would possibly know why I got such a good deal? Clean car fax; however, the VIN is just the chassis. No body damage or repair. No indication of leaks, etc.....

Anything I should be looking for? I don't mean to be paranoid but things just don't normally work this way... Look forward to replies!!!

Congratulations on your new rig. You're not actually paranoid, just a RV Owner...it's part of the lifestyle.

When there were kids at home I had a perpetual "Dad" look. Ya, paranoid!
My RV is home at night. I'm way ahead.

This forum will teach you a lot, maybe more than you want to know! Great folks, all trying to help the others.
