2005 Phaeton Pre-Purchase Inspection info needed
My wife and have been searching the last couple of months for a 2003-2006 Phaeton 35DH. We really like the floorplan and the owners we've talked to over the years have always raved about them. We've found a couple of which are more than a 500 hundred miles from our home. Both have the 300ISB with Allision 3000 tranny. Under 50K miles. We will be dinghy towing our 2002 Wrangler.
We've been getting pictures and service records from the owners and have narrowed it down to two 2005 35DH's. We have decided that before making a final decision, a road trip is in order to personally inspect and witness the operation of all systems and to road test them. And perform a very thorough per purchase inspection.
Since we have never owned a Tiffin Class A motorhome, there are probably specific things to look for in a pre purchase that only owners or past owners of this year/model would know to look for. This would be in addition to the usual inspection for leaks, past damage and repair, etc.
Idiosyncrasies in the water systems? Electrical systems/Invertor/Generator? Slide system? Leveling system?
Thanks in advance.
