2011 Thor motor coach Chateau 21c

Hi! New to this forum and looking for some information on the 2011 THOR MOTOR COACH CHATEAU 21C. Looking to purchase one so we can travel with our pets. It has 98,000 miles on it, looks good for that number of miles cosmetically, are there any worries mechanically at that mileage? Generator has 144 hours. They are asking 29,000.00 dollars. Thanks for any help!

Ive had a higher milage Ford V10 Class C (130k) and it was in great shape mechanically but it had been well maintained. Also had to have the ball joints replaced which is normal for over 90k miles. Other than that, just normal maint.

If you can’t get comprehensive and satisfactory maintenance/repair records, I’d keep looking. Trans should have been service at 50k (max) and is ready for another. I’m an advocate of a 3k mile oil change interval but 5k is acceptable.

Here’s a similar one for the same price with 1/3 the milage

Good luck with your search and if you want, post any here you are interested in for a specific critique. Is the one you’re looking at in Michigan City?

Thank you.

Yes, it is the one I am looking at. I live in Wisconsin so it is the best deal on one closest to me. The owner has been messaging me and indicates well maintained with service records available. I do not want to spend a ton of money initially in case this does not work well for us. I could see us upgrading quickly if it does.
