Question Question about trading for a Dutchman Motorhome.

I've had a guy wanting to trade my 2011 Gulfstream travel travel. Model 24RBL. And my 2007 XLS Ford Escape with only 62000 miles with new tires, radio, brakes, etc for a 2007 Dutchman Class C motorhome with only 3397 miles, 31P model,

Ad of the motorhome here: 2007 Chevy workhorse 6.0 engine, 3,397 miles like brand new, 4000 onan generator 32 hours, super slide, split bath, queen bed, entertainment center over cab with 1/2 bed, bought new never wet, selling due to health reasons only. $38,200.

Is this a good deal? Thanks, Bob

If selling for health reasons, why then trading for another RV setup?

I certainly would not trade for a Dutchman.

Low generator hours could be a problem. The generator has only been run about 6 hours a year and it needs to be exercised 1 hour/month as a minimum (under 1/2 load). So I would expect a minimum of 72 hours.

Thanks for the information. I'm most likely not to trade because the motorhome cann't haul some stuff I have in a storage shed anyway. I'm going to sell my escape and by a Ford or GM Cargo van to pull the camper and haul my stuff at the same time. Looking to buy a 3/4 or one ton van. I just hate to haul all this family stuff around with me all the time.


Thanks, Bob

Now I'm rethinking about this motorhome because it might just be a excellent deal. Owner has told me he paid 94,000 new for motorhome and here is some options he bought for it,

The camper has the chevy 6 l engine,4000 onan generator,electric step, super slide,artic pack,power windows,power door locks,day night shades, queen bed never sleep on,artic pack,delux wheel covers,16 ft awning, awning over slide,2 tvs both with boosters,enertanement center with half bed,captains chairs,3 way refigerator,auto lite water heater,split bath with walk in shower, porcelin comode,tow pkg,microwave,stove with oven,running boards,emergency start should battery fail, 2 new delco batteries.

He wants 30,000 dollars plus my 24RBL 20011 Gulfstream travel trailer.

It's still a 2007. Does he have clear title? I personally prefer to buy from a dealer where there is some possibility of a warranty, even if a short one. I would recommend you have a good rv tech/mechanic check it out also. I don't know the value of your Gulfstream, but I've seen other Dutchmen 31P's for sale from 38,000 to a high of 49,000.

He has a clear title. I'm going to check it out this week. He said he has kept this motorhome in a pole barn from day one when he bought it new.

Thanks, Bob

Good, many owners take good care of their MH, it's a large investment.

I messed up once and bought a MH without due diligence, , and most purchases are 'as is' unless otherwise specified in a contract. So it wasn't that 'great' of a deal.

I did end up fixing it and using it for 10 years though, once fixed it was
