Things I have learned from reading

After having it recommended by several members that I read read read, before answering questions, I have learned quite a bit.

First, thanks to the members who said "read, read, read". If you are a new member there aren't a lot of subjects that haven't already been addressed, so read read read.

Here are some things I have learned, I think.

#1) Stained carpet on the edges of furniture and appliances could mean active leak or past leak, check floorboards.

#2) Some cosmetic stuff is really easy to fix and some is a nightmare, do homework before thinking you can just "throw down some carpet or hardwood flooring".

#3) Maintenance records are wonderful, if someone took the time to keep the records they most likely took care of their unit better than someone who has no records and says "I dunno" when asked about maintenance.

#4) If your intention is to live fulltime, make SURE you LOVE the floorplan. I have read several where they got great deals financially but hate the home in which they live, no monetary savings is worth that.

#5) Diesel schmeisel

#6) Look for rusted frames and under body. I actually saw a RV on eBay that's outward body looked like it had just come off the showroom. But the underneath storage and generator storage were completely rusted through, the generator was being held in place with a ratchet strap.

I am still reading, please feel free to add tidbits of knowledge. Still saving, I plan on having the money for my RV about Christmas or January of 2018.
