The Flair is an entry level class A motorhome. The thing to be concerned about is leaks around the windows and front and rear caps. Take along a flash light and look in all the cabinets (pull out drawers) and lockers looking for any signs of a leak. Also look fro any side wall delamination (bubbles of bows on the side walls. Inspect the roof and check the caulking at all of the seams.

If it passes inspection, take it fro a drive and get it up to road speeds and see if it handles OK.

Finally, have a certified RV tech check the unit over and see if all is OK....cost you about $300.00.

Good advice.

Also Check tires and look for oil leaks all along the drive train. Run everything from fridge to AC, water pump and ever switch. Last one I did it all but did not turn on wipers. Lost a blade in a downpoor on the way home. Go figure.
