04 Itasca 24 foot.

I am new to RVing. I have been to a few forums and this one seems like a great one. Think I'll stay here and explore.

I am considering an 04 Itasca Spirit, 24 foot from an individual owner. It has 25,000 miles.

I was wondering if anyone has had any good or bad dealings with this RV?

I am really green, so don't hesitate to tell me anything.

Thanks so much.

You have to realize you're talking about an 11 year old RV. Although when new it was considered a good vehicle, no one on here can tell you how good or bad that particular MH is now. Just about the biggest concern on an RV is water leaks. Most people will tell you to run away from anything that shows signs of leaks. They're usually not that dificult to repair, but if you have to have it done by a "pro" it's going to be very expensive, and probably not worth the expense.
Being new to RVs it would be worthwhile to find someone that knows what to look at/for in whatever vehicle you are checking. Even if you had to pay someone it would be money well spent. There are also a number of lists around on things to check, if you're up to checking it yourself.
Best of luck in finding something that will work for you.

Thanks Mich. if it looks good, I do plan on getting it all checked out. I am glad to know it was a good vehicle when built!

In the 24' range I have come to the conclusion that these are top notch brands I would consider:

For used:
1. Born Free
2. Coach House
3. Chinook
4. Dynamax
5. Winnebago View
6. Forest River - as a less expensive alternative to the above $40,000+ used ones.

* Check out the brand new Dynamax REV, can be had new for in the $60ks. It is a totally new idea and concept built on the new Dodge Ram Promaster chasis with a 6 cyl 280 HP engine. This could be a new direction for smaller RVs. They hit a great price point, and with a 5yr 100,000 mile warranty on the engine and chasis, on top of great MPG in high teens, this could be a home run. It is light, and a few of the behind the scenes luxury items are missing, but if you are like me and can take care of things and don't care about solid wood this and that, or plain micro instead of convection oven, some particle board in places like cupboard shelves, and simple pull down dark out shades, they give lots of fun usable items standard, like an outside entertainment center and a huge "magic bed" 60x80" that comes down from ceiling when you want to sleep. I can't wait to see and drive one in person, but there are no dealers within 500 miles of me that I can find so far.
