I can't get the first to link either.

However, my perspective: these are 20 and 27 year old vehicles, respectively. The condition of the specific rig, its engine maintenance history, etc., would be more important to me than the colors or small layout details. (Wives, however, tend to be unsatisfied if they don't like the RV's layout.) Rig #2, all else being equal, should be a stronger and more responsive vehicle. It also is 7 years older. Back to point #1: Condition, condition, condition.

Works for me every time. Copy URL and paste in a new window.

Yes refresh showed expired. Here's another example, though a bit more than I want to spend.

Agreed and understood. The diesel looks to be in good shape. I would pay for an independent inspection before buying it.

Here's another similar Rexhall

The Gulfstream DP looks nice, and the fact that it's a Cummins diesel makes it even nicer. The only drawback is that it's likely the old 275hp Cummins, which I hear was pretty much a gutless wonder.

Best of luck in your search!

TiffenThis is the one I would seriously look at if you were in the market.

Rexall is out of business, not a huge deal but between them being a very small company to begin with there is not tons of specific support out there.

I had a 2000 Rexhall Aerbus with the Ford V-10. It was a good unit and served me well. However if I was buying, I'd prefer the diesel. I've never been a big fan of Gulf Stream, but likely it has the cummins 5.9 or 8.3 engine, Allison trans with Spartan chassis....much better all around rig.
