I would like to buy a used class A motorhome but not sure which ones are of good quality.I was looking at a Thor Ace but thanks to people on this site, I learned that that unit would not fit my needs. Any comments on which used class A's i should be looking at would be appreciated.
I will be using it for extended travel with a lot of time spent out west in the summer. I only want gas units. I'm looking for 2017 or newer and am willing to spent up to $80,000.

Before you buy check out reviews of all of them...and look @ a Allergo (any model) I have friend that paid over $430,000 for a 48 footer made by Newar...he has had nothing but problems since he brought his & was told by one dealer..."If you want a trouble free coach" you need to spent at lease 1 million dollars...

I had 2005 Dolphin LX and loved it.Sold it 4 years ago and now I'd like to get back into RVing, too bad they don't make units like my old Dolphin.
I appreciate your comments and hope to get several more.

That sounds like something a dealer would say.

NO, actually the opposite. Those million dollar coaches are so complex that one almost need a tech on duty 24/7. The absolute opposite of KISS.

Your best bet is to drag the wife around to find which floorplan she LOVES. When I bought my first motorhome ions ago, I was looking at 22'ers.....We ended up buying a ten year old LOADED 37'er with 12,000 miles for $12,000....because she LOVED it.
