I bought a 2014 Newmar Ventana LE 3634 about 2.5 yrs ago. Wade Stroh was the salesman...mostly handled over the internet, e-mail and phone. Smooth transaction, good PDI, and have only been back once for minot warranty work. We're loving our DP.

It was our second motorhome so we knew mm ost of what to expect and didn't have many questions. The couple that did the PDI went over everything and gave us their card to call them if we ever had any questions.

Last year our POS Thor Palazzo had a serious air leak while travelling near Denver, CO. We barely made it to TransWest. Service there was very busy. Nevertheless they got us in the next day and fixed our air leak. They seemed to be very well organized and efficient.

I kind of judge a dealership on their service capabilities. From my experience TransWest did better than most.

I am purchasing an older MH now through them - possibly, maybe - salesman seems to be back peddling on his verbal promises. I am glad to hear some of the positive answers here.

Told me it has new tires, now saying if 5-7 yrs old then they won't change them. Which calls into question everything he has said to me. Said as this is a freight liner shop they will go through the chassis and house and "fix anything they find wrong" - I hope he is telling the truth.

I am using for the chassis inspection the following company. They are coming out on Tuesday next week for the safety inspection. The guys coming out are contracted with the county for all fatal truck crash investigations for root cause analysis.
A Convenient Change
Truck & Trailer Repair
(720) 220-5080
Mobile Truck, Trailer Repair, & DOT Inspections

I haven't found a good house inspector yet. There is one nationwide company that I talked to but they won't go on the roof. I may do the house side myself.

Pre or post delivery inspection I think.

They have told me I can stay in their campground to get the inspection and learn systems. This will be my first MH and it is diesel so I am not even really sure how to drive the thing. You all might want to stay out of Colorado until I figure it out. They are on the highway frontage road so I will be learning on long stretch of highway.

Great fortunes to you on your - hopefully - positive future ride.

I'd be very interested in knowing the quality and charges for the one(s) you use to do your "pre-purchase" inspection. In my opinion, the most important inspection.

Thanks.
The chassis inspection is basically a DOT safety inspection by an expert. He charges about 200$

If you have a rig in mind he will be out there this Tuesday and could probably do yours and save you a little money on the trip charge portion. I think I will do the house inspection myself. I downloaded by purchasing a nice checklist to go through. 25 dollars or so.
