2011 21 ft chateau

We are looking at a 2011 four winds chateau class C. My concerns are 1) it's a former rental and 2) has 65000 miles on it. The price is fabulous so I'm a little concerned why...29,000...from a dealer, not private sale. We are interested in taking it to dog shows, weekend trips an maybe one or two weeks on road/year.
We never had an RV before so for a first one this seems the perfect size. Can anyone tell me what to look for and what questions to ask?

Thanks ahead of time.

First off I would book it through NADA. Just use the basic information with no added options. That will give you a good idea if it is a good deal or not. I know many on the forum have purchased rentals and been happy. My concern would be 65K in miles. There is way too much inventory out there for a formal rental with 65K for $29,000. I think you may be able to do better.

Good Luck

The dealer may drop a fair bit, if you really like if offer 30% less. Rental units are a gamble, some companies service them very well between rentals, some not so much.

Thank you guys. We ended up with a light trailer. My husband drove the class C and didn't like how it felt (I loved it as a passenger). We already have a truck and he pulls a trailer with it so he knows what it feels like. Besides, it gives him an excuse to look for a new truck.
