Used Class C Four Winds

My wife & I are newbies going to look at a well maintained Class C. It's a 2009 Four Winds model with the Ford V10. 33K miles on it.

I'm open to any comments on quality of the model and things to look for. I believe it's manufactured by Thor.

Thanks,

BT2 Zeke

You may want to have an inspection done if you don't want to do it yourself.

Ford E450 and front end caster

TYPICALLY, Ford ships these E350/E450 Cutaways off the assembly line
with +3 to +4 degrees of Caster. Those settings are
OK for city driving BUT you want to have +5 to +6 degrees
of Caster for highway driving, OTHERWISE:

POPULAR MECHANICS MAY 1973:
START QUOTE:
If too little caster exists, the car will wander and weave,
thus necessitating constant corrections in steering.

Yes, its a Thor, considered to be a pretty middle-of-the road maker. I would give my Four Winds about a 7 out of 10 on quality. No serious issues with anything, though I think the 'Luxor' leather seats and sofa bed is just another name for cheap vinyl, and I'll be replacing the seats one day as the finish is flaking off. All the vitals (plumbing, electric, slide-outs,general constructions) have been satisfactory but if you are new to all this, I would have an independent inspection at an RV shop.
My Siesta model has full fibreglass front and back caps, which may not be typical with other models;this affords extra water penetration protection.
Check all your inside wood panelling and ceiling for any sign of water staining.
Good Luck with your purchase!
