2007 Concord, Good Deal?

My wife and I went looking at Class A's, but when she saw this Class C, I think she fell in love. She is a lot more comfortable with driving this type than with a Class A (we split the driving). My question is what do you guys think of this one?
Obviously, I'm not willing to spend what they are asking, and I will get it inspected, and have new tires put on...but other than that, is it a good deal?
The inside looked nearly brand new, it has had two owners, and both had to part for different reasons.
Thanks in advance for any guidance.

Here's a link to some pics

Smile Coachman purchase.

Will this be your first RV?
We saw a Coachman Concord 300TS at a show and fell in love with it. But we rented first to see if we like the life style and to get the feel of floor plans and to learn how everything functioned. Ended up with a totlly different style Class C.
I checked your link and saw the 2007 Freelander 2600. Is that the correct one?

Things to consider if that is the model:
1. Ford Cab is before the new change over- so price should be lower.
2. Front window in the cab over may be a problem in the future-see other thread discussing this issue. Check for previous water leaks or chips in the glass.
3. Not a walk around bed, you will have to climb over each other and hard to make up bed.
4. No slides- cramped if traveling with guests. Doable with just 2, but once you experience the added room with slide you will see a major difference.
So take your time and check out other floor plans.
My wife said she would be afraid to drive a Class A and will not drive our 32' Class C so you are lucky she is willing to drive! Happy Camping.

Considering what we paid for our Winnebago Aspect (too much) I don't think that's a bad price, especially considering the mileage. If you negotiate it, even better. I would be sure to get it checked out thoroughly because it's been sitting around a lot. Parts such as brake calipers tend to stick if they're not "exercised" frequently.
And there's nothing wrong with the old cab style, just a body style change. Personally I prefer the old style.

mrrving, thanks for the response, but when I click on the link it takes me to the Concord 300, with 3 slides, and a walk around bed, which is what we were looking at. thanks again. Baraff, it is at a dealership and they already said they would inspect everything for us before we bought, and I wouldn't want to pay more than 40k. I was unaware of the cab style with Ford, so thanks for that.

Regarding tires, if you negotiate replacements be sure to verify the date codes first. You don't want them to put on "new" old-stock tires.
Best of luck and let us know if you get it!
