RE: First Time Buyer...Updated 03/06/2006

Buy an older (Pre computer controlled), road proven, quality, diesel pusher. You make a good point. We made out ok buying a 1993 GBM (32') with the 454 gas engine (91K miles) and a 5 year old factory rebuild transmission back in 2007 for $7995 after the kids age 9 asked for a MH. We did change spark plugs and the transmission fluid and worked on the house in the driveway and made several trips before our 8K mile (30 day) trip from KY to the Pacific coast in 2011 and the kids on their 14th birthday got to learn how to get up on a surf board in Carlsbad, CA. Now that the kids are 22 and getting on with life I need to get it out of the driveway I guess. The wife home schooled the kids and I used the old MH to teach home and auto repair so the MH worked out well for us. $20K should get a nice gas motor home and not have any $20K repair bills like is possible with an old DP. While the MH never left us on the side of the road my plan was to rent a PU or van and load up the stuff and kids and sign over the title to someone and head back to KY if we had serious problems or an accident. Everyone is different so there is no advice that works for others. New or old motor homes are basically money pits but that is not a concern for some but it was in our case. With that being said I would do it over again for the sake of the kids. I read that COVID-19 is driving up the demand for RV's in general.
