Bought mine new and the first three years of ownership was fix and repair every weekend. I was vigilant, knowing eventually my camper would finally become a reliably built unit if I kept up the upgrades and repairs. Fixing and rebuilding areas of every aspect to build it for the long haul.

Had it for 19 years now and I know it's still better than a new rig. I literally took care of everything without an ounce of regret. Every problem became an opportunity and a wonderful challenge. I took some doing to get over how cheesy some of it was with my bad temper.LOL [emoticon]

Quality of the unit is irrelevant.

The OP agreed to borrow money and pay it back with interest. The RV is only tangentially related as a fall back position if the borrower fails to keep his end of the agreement.

So far the OP has not provided any reasoning why would should feel sympathy for his financial position when apparently, 2-3yrs ago he was in a good enough position to buy a brand new RV.

Been in the repo business. Yes we can get it, with a roll back strap around it and winch it on the bed and down the road we go. Might take 5min at 3 in the am.


Hope you knocked first.

You buy an rv it goes without saying you own the problems too and so you fix the thing better than new. The problems are there for you to learn how to deal with a challenge, to think and plan something thru before diving in and come out with flying colors. it is very rewarding.

The OP is long gone because he didn't get told what he wanted to hear. Enough of the self-righteous chest-pounding already! The horse, she is dead!

There are newer owners coming on all the time that will benefit from this info. There are more and more poorly built RVs today than ever and to express what a new owner he or she is getting into my be of some help.

If a topic is tired, which most news is, I skip it. Simple
