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 bought a Travato Class B motorhome last summer. I've driven almost 24,000 miles. From Cleveland to the Gulf, out I10 though the South West, up the Pacific Coast Highway and I90 from Seattle to Cleveland. I want to drive the Great River Road along the Mississippi this fall then stay in places I like and drive less. The Class B has been great for all this driving. Otherwise I'd like a bit more room and a real shower Is there a time of year that is good to buy? Are there things that will get me the best trade-in. The Travato has issues, some that I stressed myself some were never put together right in the first place and should be covered by warranty. Little stuff like cabinet latches. Do I have things fixed before trade-in? I'm wondering if I should buy a used Class C that someone else has worked the bugs out of? Any point taking a Winnebago to a Winnebago dealer and buying a Winnebago View Jonathan Smith
