How to find a used motorhome - Class A

Hi, I could not find a more appropriate place to ask this question, but feel free to educate me, I am new to irv2. We are looking for a Fleetwood Bounder 33C or 33M, or a Winnebago Sightseer 33C. Used between 2011-2014.
But, other than RVTrader, where can I look? I am in northern Ca, have have found very little locally.

Any help is appreciated.

Shopping

Craigslist may be good for your search. Check out a large search area. And then use a search engine Google etc. Happy hunting.

PPL RV's out of Texas. That is where we bought our Class A and have been quite happy with it and we live in Michigan. Just make sure you have someone check it out to make sure it is ok if this is completely new to you.

Another word of advice is to take your time and every opportunity to look at different makes and models of Class A's.

We had a Class C first and decided we wanted to upgrade. We started taking the opportunity to go to RV lots and look at what they had in stock, the price, the floor plans etc. Overtime we learned what we liked and what we didn't. We also learned what to look for as far as condition and problem areas >>> roof leaks, fogged windows, delamination etc.

We probably looked at a couple hundred rigs over a 2-3 year period.

We found our current coach listed on Ebay in Florida and just by chance we had to drive my parents down for the winter. We took the time to go look at it. Both my wife an I were floored at how nice the coach was and the condition it was in, it looked like it had been very well taken care of. We ended up making an offer on the coach ~1 week later and the seller took it. This was in late 2008, the start of the recession, it was a repo and we got it for 50% of the value. It's still worth ~80% of what we paid for it.

We've hat this coach for +6 years now and really enjoy it. The Monaco brand is a very nice brand, ours was 4th in their hierarchy, again a really nice coach.
