Be sure you check the frame, starting from the tongue of the A frame section. What you can't see behind the 'skin' can be an eye opener.Depending on where it has been sitting for the last 14 yrs..Let's hope not within 50 to 60 miles of the ocean~!~!~
Like others have said, Tires, bearings, brakes, shocks and...just maybe the wheels. Check all the running lights as well...make sure everything works before going on the road with it. Which means the tow vehicle will have to be setup to tow this unit with the proper electrical hookup and, the proper towing equip as well. Don't forget to grab a new deep cycle battery or, 2 batteries. (depends on your setup)
This is what's needed to get the thing home.
Then the fun begins~!
Then you have A/C, water heater, refrig (?), univolter, waste water holding tanks, curtains..wooden floors rot (?)
Not to say a thing about all the window/door/vent seals that will "have to be" replaced.. (at some point)
Count on it..I speak from experiences.
Bought my unit 4 years ago from the nicest person you'd ever wanta meet. We still write often to each other~!!
My unit was parked for almost 15 yrs in his front yard in TX..It was like (and still is~!) brand new inside..
In my case, everything was working and, continues.. still to this day..The 4 burner stove & it's oven is without a scratch or burned mark..I have never seen anything quite like it..
The A/C is original...have not even recharged it as of yet. I did replace the A/C shroud. The awnings, all four of them, are like brand new still~! sigh, I wished I had the Blue color'd
GAWD..I've spend almost as much as I paid for it and, mine was in Fantastic shape...Fact of the matter, I'm still spending money...lmao
Just this week, spend over 400$ for the polisher kits from perfectpolish and, close to 50$ for new seals for the door and, roof vent over the bathroom.
Is it for sales>>?? Not on your life..
So, if you buy it..at least you know what you're getting into...
You're not just buying a A/S but, a way of life~!
