Thor ACE 30.2

Thinking of upgrading to an ACE 30.2 from a TT.
I have 4 kids, 2 in college, plus wife finishing up Masters degree. I want to stay under $100k. Lots of money going into education. I donít want a DP at this time. Thatís for retirement. Need the bunkhouse for comfortable sleeping. Sometimes one or both of older kids may not come along.
I have always been sketchy of buying used. But....


Thank you

If buying used, check it out closely, bring knee pads, lighting, thermometer, IR gun, maybe a moisture meter. Get under the coach and look over every inch of it, take pictures, videos. Take your time do the same thing inside. Then the roof. Test drive, check the engine compartment coolant, oil, brake fluid,transmission fluid, drive shaft, tires and date codes, awning, steps, appliances, all windows, lighting in and out, heating and cooling system, all systems, generator, oil. You can actually send the engine oil out for analysis as well. Mirrors, hitch, batteries, water tanks, propane tank, charging systems, bring a multi-meter. Leveling jacks, go slow while inspecting, etc. If you are not comfortable doing this have a professional inspector see it. Good luck.
