Ford did not make a 1998 model year chassis. That 98 coach is either on a 97 chassis with 460/E4OD or a 99 V10/4R100. Make sure you know what you are getting into.
The 460 (240 HP stock) chassis with Banks is a great grunt engine.
The V10 (275 HP stock) chassis with Banks runs OK but operates at a higher RPM.

I found the RV you are talking about online. It looks pretty good. The owner put in a wooden / wood look laminate flooring. The flooring in there now is not factory. The cover for the stove was also added by the owner. The factory cover is made from the same material as the counter top. Those covers broke really easily. That may be the reason for the replacement. The fridge is a upgrade from what comes standard. Nice upgrade. Aside from a needed good cleaning, that is a really nice RV.

If you buy it, you will probably need to replace the tires if they are older than 7 years old. Replace all the under hood rubber. Hoses, belts, filters etc. All is cheap and easy to replace. (except the tires).


My advice is worth exactly what you paid for it.

Low mileage isn’t always bad as long as it’s been started and run on a regular basis. But generally low miles like that means it has probably sat for years at a time without being run. That is very bad for a motorhome. I once bought a 10 year old pickup that had 12,000 miles on it. The owner used it to tow his fifth wheel a few times each summer but would let it sit all winter without being run. That was the worst vehicle I ever owned. Had to fix all kinds of things on it. The repairs all cost more than the original purchase price.

I bought an 88 Coachmen Class A in 2004 with 12k miles and had excellent service from it. Still runs great with 60k on it but I think I'd like to move into another coach before it starts needing more $$$ than it's worth. I'm taking all the great comments under advisement.

The Nada pricing for that MH is between $12 and $15k depending on condition. If it is the 460 eng with the Banks complete system headers,FF muffler and CAI you will have over 300 HP. If it is in very good condition no fluid or roof leaks I would offer between high and low Nada price and would pay the high Nada value if you really liked the MH.

It looks like it was sold. I hope the OP bought it.
