Question Opinion and Advice Needed

Hi all.
New to the forums here, and I am looking at making my first MH purchase, but I do have questions.
I found an ad for a 1992 Four Winds 30 ft Class C, on the Ford E350 chassis, but from what little info I have started to look into, that is almost to big for that chassis. I am seeing that E350's should be under 27 ft, as not to overload??
It has roof air, genset, and looks like a good awning, and all the other goodies that go with a bigger class C
Would that be a pretty good starter MH?
By the way, big vehicles are not a problem for me, drove truck for years (also fix them).
This will be our first dip into the waters..........................
Thanks in advance.

You may find that your CCC (Cargo Carrying Capacity) is almost none. Most of the Class C of that age are at their limits. Again you are also looking at a 21 year old MH and you will need to look for leaks: cab over, in and around vents, showers, windows, etc. You will also need to really look at the chassis, which shouldn't be an issue with your experience, tires for dates (not tread). I wouldn't necessary be afraid of an older MH (my first was an 87 Allegro), but I made sure it was solid and I put the money into chassis and tires. If it smells or doesn't seem right walk away. Way to much inventory out there to look at. I also wouldn't pay more then $8000 to $9000 for it.
