Looking to buy Used Class C

I am seeking a new or pre-owned Class C motorhome up to 24 feet. I am seeking a gasoline motor. It has to have low miles. I may be out of the ball park right now, but I'm trying to stay in the $60,000 range. I've been told to stay away from the Thor brand.
I am in no hurry and I'm hoping more inventory will come on the market. I am also a newbie.
Please give me any advice. I'm a Veteran, retired, single and no pets or children. I'm praying I might meet a good woman in my travels.
Thanks for your kindness in advance

Look at RV Trader and used 1Ė2-year-old Class C's from rental companies that usually sell them after 20,000 miles.

The way I went about is was to research online, join forums, ask questions and go looking at stuff and basically I came up with some requirements that I could make a list and rule certain models in or out. If you are looking at slightly used you can always go look at the new ones of the same model just to see if they fit your needs. Once I came up with a list of possibilities I began to search just for those and ignored all the ones I had ruled out. Finally when one came up that fit the bill I was ready to pounce on it. This process took a long, long time and even though the inventory has been very low since Covid, they do pop up and mine did in Oct of 2020 a hundred miles away. I jumped in the car and was up there within hours of the ad appearing on RV Trader and made a deal, gave a deposit and now over a year later very happy with the decision. To give a perspective of time we started looking at RVs about 5 years ago! At least you are already narrowed down to a C class, we started out not even knowing if we wanted a trailer or a motorhome.

Welcome to the forum.

You are joining a good group of friends here with good information to share. Read the various threads here and ask questions as they come up or add information if you can,

Look at as many rigs as you can on dealers lot to get an idea of what is out there. Maybe rent a few for weekend trips then start looking at the many for sale ads (here on this site, RVtrader and such) Do get it inspected before you exchange any $$$$$

Good luck and enjoy the adventure!

Phoenix Cruiser 2100 would fit your bill. Only draw back is the sleeper/sofa. Functional, but not the most comfortable and it is in during the day & out at night. Other than that it is an unbeatable unit. We had one.

Watch the video in post number 10. This would be an expensive mistake if you bought this model Winnebago.

Iíll give you my reason. Towing capacity. I couldnít find a gas class A in the small size I wanted that had any decent towing capacity. I tow a 6000 pound toad and other times i tow a 5000 pound boat and I have a OCCC of 2100 pounds. Class Aís appear to be heavier by nature than a comparable class C. I can do this and stay under my GCVWR of 18,500. All of this goes away with larger class Cís also. But I also bought new for under 60k before the madness started lol

Just a few years ago you could buy a brand new entry level 32 foot long class C or the same length in "class A fashion" for around $60,000. My brother considered the class A to get the rear walk-around queen bed without a slide-out, but decided to just keep what he's had for many years, a 21 foot 1998 Coachman Starflyte.

Class-C or class-A has been a long-running debate. Each has it's advantages. As for me, I love My 23'-8" Long Class B+.

There are many reasons to buy a CLASS C. I had a Class A but went to a Class C after looking at maintenance cost and ease of getting things fixed and ease of getting into a Class C vs Class A. Yes, to each their own!

A good place to search for and compare cost is POPSRV.com.
I bought my 2018 Gulfstream Conquest 6329 32' in November.
It only had 2700 miles. Been very happy with it so far! 7500 towing capacity also.
Its free to get on their web site and look alll over the US to see if you can find one. I live in Dallas and found mine in Ontario, CA. Flew out, and drove it home same day!!
