What does everyone think of this?

Hello everyone. We've been looking around for a used RV and saw this.

1991 Fleetwood Motorhome Jamboree for sale | Souderton, PA

What do you think?

Thanks!

Brooke

Welcome to the forum!
Not sure what you're asking, is it a nice rig? Is it priced right? Will it work for your needs? Does everything work?

Not being rude just trying to clarify the question you would like answered. Not sure what the market in your area is but we purchased a 1994 class A 34 ft Fleetwood Pace Arrow for a lot less than what they are asking for the one pictured. (private sale-no dealer fees)

The key is do you have a figure in mind to spend?
Do you know the Type MH you want? Class A, B, C, Gas or Diesel?
Have you decided on floor plan and how much time you plan on spending in your new MH?
Are you a weekender close to home or traveling the country for weeks on end or even full timing(dream come true)

So many decisions but well worth the time spent looking at all of them you can.

Thanks. That's basically what I was looking for - price for this age and mileage.

I am also looking to see if anyone owns or did own one like it.

We're definitely going to be weekenders with a few long trips here and there. Looking at gas Class C's, not really looking to tow anything.

We're very new to this and we're learning each day!

Thanks again.

Brooke

That's too much money for a twenty year old camper.

+1 Looks like about double what I'd be willing to pay.

That's what we thought too. We would expect to put some money in for repairs, but I was thinking with the $11K + repairs we should just spend the extra money and buy something newer. Thanks for the replies!

About double what it is worth.

Agree with others regarding price. Had a 89 of same model. Decent coach and would probably serve you well. One observation - I don't believe that queen bed is original, Jamborees with two windows in the rear wall had twin beds.

Exactly, sold my '92 29ft Four Winds in March of '11 for $5000. Bought it in '06 for $7500.

Good observation! Yes, they put a queen size mattress over top of the twin bed foundations.

We went and looked at it last weekend, this weekend we are supposed to go and test drive it and get the mechanicals looked at. If we love it, hopefully we can get them to come down significantly in price - if not, we are prepared to move on.

At least now we know what price range it should be in. Thanks!

You can't even walk around the bed in the bedroom.
I agree way too high. I just paid $6500 in Dec for a 95, 29 ft with 5,000 original miles. I would figure about $5k to $6k tops.

Good luck

If it won't budge, hit it harder or get a bigger hammer.

I don't know if they realized we knew what we were talking about when we pointed out a bunch of problems we saw, but we received an email that there was over $5K worth of repairs that would need to be made and the original owner is coming to pick it back up. So needless to say, we won't even be considering this one.
