Hello! My husband and I are new to the RV life and are looking to purchase our first camper van. We plan to live in it full time for the next 10 months and take it all across North America. So far we have been drawn to Class B vans that are 21' or less. Yesterday we looked at a used 1999 Road Trek 170 on a Dodge Chassis. It has seen some wear but has had many things replaced and drives well. We took it on the freeway and up a hill and felt good about how it was running. Overall we really liked it and for $10,000 the price seems right. However, it has been well used and has 260K miles on it. At 170 miles the engine was rebuilt. We have not had a chance to get a third party to look at it yet and wanted to see if we could get some advice from the community. At that amount of miles is it really a good idea for our needs?
I am considering the purchase of a Class A coach directly from an owner and need to understand how to safely close the transaction. My questions are these: Should I have some sort of closing agent, such as an attorney? How do I assure any lien holders are paid off so that I have clear title? Assuming this is a private sale, will I owe sales tax and, if so, when and how does the state collect it? Thanks for any advice you might offer.
I got the cash in the bank from my home sale and will be shopping in the Phoenix area for a used class A (gas) by owner, beginning Friday June 5th. Can anyone recommend a good company or technician to check out whatever unit I find?
