We are on our second RV.
The first, a new factory ordered 2015 WGO Navion Class C J Profile. we traveled 5 years and 83K miles. MB Sprinter diesel. The MB had at least 5 recalls over the years and wheel sensor issues. I had one engine code for an injector issue. It never left us stranded. We took it to Alaska and Nova Scotia and all points between. Collected 3500 dollars in the MB Blue TEC lawsuit.
Plenty of OEM vendor issues. Fridge had to be replaced, steps failed year one, and those are only the warranty related items. Bad black valve. Warranty. Fit and finish was so so. Did not care for the big over the cab window. Took a rock hit and was $1100 to replace. So I'm leary of those, I think the Seneca has one?
2021/2020 chassis. Preowned Ghost 33DS. Purchased from a Dealer. 10K miles.
Thought that maybe the preowned would be "debugged". Tow a Jeep Wrangler JL.
Fully serviced, Dealer said everything "worked" but we found later the water heater didn't work on electric. The furnace is erratic, but will usually take off eventually. As it was November in the SE we didn't "catch" either of these two items, dealer misrepresented, we didn't take the time to check it as it takes awhile to heat water electrically and it was hot so we were more interested in AC than the furnace. Buyer beware.
Prior to purchasing the Ghost, we looked at a new Wraith. Not impressed at all with fit and finish, passed on it.
The only other Ghost we looked at was a new one 36DS and frankly, I wasn't impressed with what I saw with the passenger side slide when "in". Lots of exposed staples and the slide itself and mechanism...well you need to look at that and see what you think.
The rest of the interior fit and finish isn't bad, just not great. The exterior paint they (Nexus) tout seems to easily chip.
I like the International Chassis. The air ride, air brakes, Cummins Allison has been good for our 10K miles so far. No issues.
I haven't done any stabilizer mods etc and don't plan on it. Probably new shocks next.
Others are doing Liquid Springs, Anti-Sway etc. Isn't it crazy? Spend a couple hundred thousand dollars on a rig and it doesn't handle as it should when new?
I like the 33DS plenty big enough for the two of us. I don't host large groups or dance parties so didn't need the extra width of three slides.
The bed that comes with Nexus is horrible. Plan on dealing with that.
New 22 33DS (prices I think are going down) best price over a year ago was 209K.
We paid $170K for a 21 with 10K miles.
I think a professional inspection would be worth the time and money, regardless which way you go.
Oh, and my Wife, who isn't that tall doesn't like the lack of legroom on the passenger side. Nor is that impressed with the seat comfort. That cupholder had to go right away!
