Buying an RV is a tricky endevour, many are very low quality with very low quality appliances, power distribution systems misrouted and dysfunctional
when new, fuel and gas systems are not easy to maintain and dangerous. A lot of times a used one will have a bunch of cobble-job repairs done to it
that have to be redone right before you can even safely use it, on top of the manufacturing and assembly shortcomings
I used to be an RV technician at a dealership, and know that if you buy one you NEED a manual for the chassis the RV was built onto, and a manual for
the RV coach and all of it's separate appliances and systems.
Buying an RV isn't a good idea unless you have the tools the manuals and the knowhow to do your own repairs.
If you don't you will pay a lot of money to have someone else fix it for you. Most RV repair shops and dealerships have around $100 an hour shop fee
with an hour minimum, which means you pay $100 to have anything done.
And most times you end up at a truckstop if there are no RV repair places around, which is at least as pricey.
I have one for sale for $1000 bucks, but to drive it you have to do about three times that amount of repair to it, they are garbage.
