Looking at a 88 Itasca Sunflyer

2nd owners of this 28ft 1988 Itasca Sunflyer motor home with Chevy 454 we bought it in 2004

Brand new Onan Micro Quiet 4000 Watt Generator that now has 110 Hrs on it & most of those Hrs are from a power outage

We also added 16Ft Colorado awning

This RV is a great runner, drives nice and smooth.
3 brand new batteries 1 engine, 2 deep cycle coach in the last monthF
Front air bag in just the last couple weeks
Alternator (2-15) with belts all tires new with less than 1500 miles on them
3 way (AC-DC-GAS) Norcold fridge very cold roof AC dash AC also works very well.

Over the years we have replaced the Hot Water tank Atwood 6 gallons witch has a Electronic Ignition with switch inside, 12 volt water pump, Toilet and much more, just to much to list.

Need to ask more ?'s on the what maintance been done to the 454.

Asking $6800 OBO Seems to me that is very fair I would probably go in at 6k.

What does everyone else think?

Thanks,

Seems to look pretty good... but hard to make judgement calls with a single picture. We stayed at Lazy Days in Tampa a year and a half ago, and when you'd look at the pics of the used RV's on their website you'd have one impression... and then you'd walk through them and get a totally different impression...

That said... $6k isn't really a lot of money in the RV world. If you're lucky to find an older one that's been well maintained, and you like it, and you can afford it, then why not go for it? My only advice is to prepare for the unexpected. It's cool that it has all that new stuff on it... but there are many other items on an RV that fail without much warning. Ask me how I know...

-cheers

If there are no water leak issues, it is a good deal, depending on the miles. As far as the motor, standard tuneup and fluid changes, along with changing antifreeze and flushing the radiator, and checking the hoses and belts.

What are the age of the tires (I see they say new but whats the date code), does it have a spare, look at the engine for leaks, then check the vacuum lines for dry rot, does it have the heat shield installed to protect the start solenoid from the headers (not a biggie but good to know), does the dash and roof A/C work, has the dash A/C been converted to 134a from R12? Finally walk through it, drive it, if you like it buy it, and enjoy it. Tires and an A/C convert are the most expensive. Good Luck!

Sorry, confused by the post ("second owners", "we bought it in 2004"). Maybe not enough coffee this am. -Al
