On The Search Again

We cooled our jets on purchasing a RV for a while, but we are back on the hunt.

We have decided to go with gas because of multiple horror stories that I have read about issues with the Sprinters. Iím sure that there are many very satisfied Sprinter owners out there, but we have decided not to go in that direction.

Anyway, here is a list of our top 4 right now. I understand that all RVís will have problems, as we have owned travel trailers before. However, I know that there are some manufacturers that have a better reputation than others. So Iím asking for input about these four.

Model Mileage Price Length
2007 Coachmen Concord 235 SO 33k $36k 24í
2001 Dynamax Isata 24CB 41k $26k 24í
2005 Winnebago Itasca Cambria 33k $37k 24í
2011 Montclair 23RBS 37k $39k 22í

When you're looking at units that old, condition and maintenance history trump everything. Manufacturer reputation and initial quality are important factors for late model units, but that Isata is coming up on 20 years old.

Something stored indoors by someone with enough time and/or money to stay on top of regular maintenance would be the best bet.

Excellent point!

I assume you've spent some time with the floor plans. The corner beds are a deal breaker for us. If you're set on a smaller one, I've seen barely used 2018s go for 45ish.

We are not in a hurry, and plan on waiting for another month or two when the RV summer season is down. We have already seen some amazing discounts at the dealers on new 2019 models.

Yes, I think if you can wait a bit you'll be in a great position. The RV market is tanking and inventory is backing up. Good luck to you!

I agree, you may do exceptionally well on a brand new unit.

But if you find yourself back looking at used ones, you might consider putting a Phoenix Cruiser 2350 - 24' on your search list. I personally prefer starting with model year mid-year 2004 or later to get the great entry door and rear wall with integrated spare tire compartment. If you jump a few years newer into a 2007, you get two batteries and a whole house inverter. If you go into a 2010 model year, the slide out includes the fridge for a more open floor plan.

Our 2007 PC-2350 (CLICK HERE TO SEE IT), has no slide out. We ordered it that way.
