If used get an inspection. I recently read about a couple with roof leak in the bath.

Great stuff, all; thanks very much. I wondered about buying used from a private party, and the overall inspection that you don't get that way that a dealer would provide. I imagine you still get them from dealers when you buy used, and you can also just pay to get one done on a private sale. Of course, then the dealer has a motive to find problems, whereas they don't (as much) when it's from their own inventory....
As long as you're talking, we're listening; thanks again.

I meant get an independent inspection even if buying from a dealer. This couple say the dealer downplayed any cosmetic concerns they saw in the bath. Let me find and post the link.

Make sure you want a MH before you buy. You may want to rent one and see how you like the lifestyle. We bought a 6 month old MH from someone that thought that was what they wanted they bought it new and put $10,000 in upgrades. After 4 months they found they didn't like the lifestyle. We got a great buy but I bet they took a big hit by what we payed for it and how much they sold it fore. They told me they should have rented a MH for the 4 months they were on the road.

The best time to buy is when you find the RV that is perfect for your needs. It is also good advice to buy your RV when people aren't standing in line waiting for a salesperson to sell to them. It is like buying a vehicle except there isn't anywhere near as much pricing information available for RVs on the internet.

you may want to look at diesels if you plan on towing heavy loads,even if it says you can pull the weight you wont want to tow the max weight all the time ,too much wear, especially gas.Hope it helps,i worked in the industry and seen people regret not getting enough power.In my opinion if im towing anything i want a diesel with air brakes and air suspension rides great.
