First really big class A yikes

Hi all I am very interested in purchasing a 2002 Georgie Boy Classic Cruiser 36 with 2 big slides. only 2000 miles, clean as they get, but its big.
Are they any particular quirky things about this model I should be eyeballing?

We have had a 1988 - 25' Class A Holiday Rambler - that is a lot smaller.

I have read that some consider too low a mileage on a gas engine is something to consider when buying used!

With only 2000 miles, I would want a complete engine inspection, and transmission service. Engine to include compression test and borescope to check the condition of the cylinder walls.

Was the coach used very much? Was it stored under cover?

Probably looking at shocks, tires, possibly brakes, lube job at a very minimum.

Generator used at all? Good Luck

If the tires are the originals (probably from the chassis build year of 2001, or even 2000), replace them immediately. I'd be reluctant to drive more than 10 miles to a tire store if that's the case.

We bought an '02 in '10 that had tires with an '01 manufacture date. I stopped at the tire store on the way home after we bought it. The rig had been use regularly and had 11K miles on it.
