To buy or not to buy

Hi - I'm a newbie in this forum. I've only had a camper, never a motorhome. I have the opportunity to buy a 1999 Monaco Windsor 40' no slides - for $20,000. The seller says it is half-price and it won't lose it's value.
The size of it kind of scares me - it's so big!!
I guess my question is - is $20,000 a great price?
Is it easy to learn to drive one of these coaches.
Thanks very much for any responses.

I started 4 years ago with a 32 footer and one week later I wished I had something bigger. I think the price is fair for a pusher as long as they can provide service records.

Here is a link to gauge price.

Google "how to drive a big motorhome" there are lots of good articles that helped me.

PS if you want a 32' buy that Windsor and trade it for mine.

Adding to what TNT provided, here's a link to the MH that the OP mentioned:
1999 Monaco Windsor Series Cummins 330hp 40' Non Slide Standard Equipment, Prices & Specs - NADAguides

Seems that the coach would have to come with all new tires, fluids, filters and batteries in order to come close the seller's asking price. Check for leaks inside, but with no slides, that becomes a window-related item; a lot better for you.
