Looking for used motorhome

I am looking for a used RV for under $15,000. From my searches I have spent a lot of time chasing windmills and need some suggestions.
My Desires:
1) Ford v10 engine
2) interior woodwork that is more than fake paper glued to thin plywood
3) a fiberglass body with seams in less loaded areas and with a gelcoat not rubber roof.
4) not over 24 ft in length with a bed for two in the rear

Can anyone suggest a model and manufacture that meets my needs?

JMHO. If you find all that offered, at $15k it will have sold 6 months ago, or be a salvaged unit. I think you have to let go of a few things from the list. Or triple your budget. Like I say. JMHO.

I have a rare 23ft 1988 Amera Coach. It has everything that you say yet it has a Dodge 360, not a Ford V-10.

Runs great and you would have plenty of money left over....

I hope you find what you are looking for...

Although that's a tall order, it's not impossible. You'll likely be looking at 1999s with 90k+ miles. Still, the potential is there to get a clean, well maintained one for $15k or less.

Check out older Jaycos. They're about as nice a Class C you're going to find for the money (and if you don't care for those, THEN you should consider an older 460 powered unit from the early-mid 1990s)
36ft Damon Intruder Class A - 37ft National Sea Breeze LX Class A
-Past RVs: 19ft Sportsman, 24ft Jayco, 30ft Coachmen Mirada. We had some good times.
