You could look into the RENTAL MARKET there you will find something newer and in your budget range,well maintained and solid.

More than 135 members here have made that choice and are happy with it.

It is a long thread but very informative and if you have any other questions that wasn't covered just ask and you will get an answer.

Good Luck in your search.

Stick with what you have. It's not old and that drivetrain will go 300K miles, easily. Buying a used vehicle can be buying someone else headache. You know what you have, stick with it.
If you need to upgrade some things in the house like furniture, appliances etc, you will be waaaay ahead with what you have.

Hello, I currently have a 2002 Minnie Winnie Class C 31ft with 79,000. I love this rig however its getting old.


Old?

My C is a 1995 with nearly 200,000 on it. The house is the weak part of these things, the chassis is a well-proven unit designed to go 500,000 miles or more.


Old?

My C is a 1980 with nearly 30,000 miles on it (I know, it was parked for 20 years straight). I am just about done replacing the entire interior (reupholster, new appliances, upgraded electronics, etc). The chassis is solid as can be, 42 years after manufacture.

I did the same thing. Sold our well loved no issues that I knew of with some rear body damage that I waterproofed. It was a 2003 Itasca Spirit 22e with 55000 miles. I had used eternabond on all the roof seams and around all the light openings and the tape was still in good shape 10 years later. Our reasoning was getting a larger unit with more sleeping space. We love to take our grandkids and their parents with us. We did find a 2018 former rental with just over 50000 miles in your price range. Bought it in late March listed near us on RV Trader. It’s a 25b and I don’t see any decline in coach quality. Nice hardwood cabinet fronts same stove, toilet quality, a bit nicer faucets than ours had and had replaced. Bigger tv of course and a rear bed with space for another tv. I plan to keep this one at least another decade. Maybe we were just really lucky.
