Not sure on the translation, but it sounds like you are asking him for a warranty? If so, it's not very likely that's going to happen - even if it were 20 years newer?

If you want something in that price range, you had better prepare yourself to accept a coach on an as is/where is basis. To do that, you would probably want to know about existing problems to determine it's value? If you are not able to do an inspection that might allow you to determine it's condition or value, you can hire people to do that for you? Experts that can go over the chassis and coach carefully, and provide you with a pretty good idea of where the coach is at as far as general condition, and what you might expect right away from a maintenance perspective?

Traditionally, the responsibility for doing this is up to the purchaser, not the seller. I think it's a good idea to check the coach out in person, and if still interested, arrange for a proper inspection by yourself, or by experts you hire locally.

I don't know what the engine problems were when you went to see it. If you went back to look again, would you really KNOW they were fixed?

When there the first time, did you checked to make sure all the coach systems and appliances were working? Do you know enough about all of them to be sure? Did you check for water damage? How old are the tires? New ones can cost $2500 or more. Tread doesn't matter, it's recommended they be changed after 7-8 years.

The coach is old and things will go wrong. Once you buy it "as is", it's yours and no going back to the seller, that's just the way it is.

I have to agree with ahicks. It would be much safer for you to hire an RV inspector to completely go over the RV and give you a written report. If it passes to your needs, you can then negociate a proper price to fix the things it needs. Last time I looked, it was about $350 for an inspection, which you could figure into the price you are willing to pay.

I believe the OP already bought (brought) the coach and the seller refuses to refund the money. If we knew where the coach was located, we could recommend an honest, inexpensive mechanic in that area.

Hello appreciated Member, maybe the best solution is contact an expert in old motorhomes to have a real diagnostic for this motorhome, please let me know if you knows someone in Moreno Valley CA or Bakersfield CA.

Best Regards
Omar

Here are a few which say they do California, you would need to contact them to see if they will come to those cities. Some of these just do inspections. Some are RV service centers but also do pre-purchase inspections.

Hello appreciated member,

Thank you so much for your help, I think my problem is not so big with people like you,
I need to accept I am an amateur in this business
of MOTORHOMES, but is not a mistake, is a live
lesson. I will call with Ventura RV repair to fix the
Most important Problems, and I think the owner
Needs to fix some cosmetic thinks to establish a
connection with my little Castor (these is his name)
Thank you again, please be in contact!
