Newbie needs advice before purchase! Four Winds Chateau 28A

Hi all! We're looking at a 2005 Four Winds Chateau Sport 28A class c motorhome with 16k miles. It has the ford chassis and v-10 engine. What are the quirks or issues I should be looking for and are these good units? It appears to be in overall great shape with no stains or funny looking areas and very minimal surface rust underneath. Would these be considered mid grade models or base type models? Thank you very much for your help!!

Four Winds by Thor is an entry level RV. First and foremost on any RV is look for leaks. You need to spend a couples of hours of labor to have a certified RV tech (not the selling dealer) to perform a complete check of all systems on the RV as well as a roof and window inspection for leaks. The cab over area is really prone to leaks on these units.

Also, see if there are good maintenance records for the maintenance on the engine, generator and transmission.
