I just bought my 98 HR imperial for 40,000, wiht some item requiring attention most of the cost is in tires. Look at for comparable units and price checking.

White top. Can I assume that the coach has two slides? If yes the price sounds about right. The only way to really see what the market is on that coach is to check solds of similar coaches. PPL motor homes lists their solds. So does ebay. Check the NADA price.

Since it has nearly 80,000 miles on it you better have it checked VERY thoroughly by experts to make sure the major components are OK. I would suggest an extended warranty but I think it is too old to get one.

Thanks for your replys.I looked at coach 2/23/12 and boy this thing looks nice, It was according to owner was kept inside when not in use and it looked like it. The exterior still has a very uniform high gloss shine,the tire code was 05 (need replaced) hydro. pump had small leak but still worked,also 2 rear jacks looked to have been leaking because there was wet dirt on them that looked like it had oil mixed with it.The interior was very clean and nothing broken seems everthing was working dishwasher looked as new,ref.looked the same no water stains on celing,vents or around windows.All switches worked well.Both driver and passenger seats show heavy use.(need recovered) The gen.set had 2300 hrs.(its 7500 quite diesel on a slide) There is only one bad thing about coach for me thats the year and only because I dont think anybody will finance it. Any suggestions would be great on financeing and value. By the way it only has one slide.Thanks to all in advance for any help.

You can check the value at NADA. Just put in the model and year, mileage is not an issue with a diesel. Usually just leave all the options on the page unchecked and then seek the price. Hope it all works out. Finanacing it will be another story.
