Re: Selling advice...
- Hi Mike,
Guess I never thought about letting anyone drive mine!!! LOL
Of course, it's not up for sale either... but if it was, I
guess I would opt for taking them out for a test ride first.
If they are REALLY serious about buying, then maybe let them
drive it in a BIG EMPTY parking lot for some "drivers education"
before I let them "hit the road" with it. Even the smaller
class C's are not all that easy to keep on the road all the time...
Heck just getting mine out the driveway is a trick!!
You still have the height and width to watch out for, plus
they don't handle like a car on curvy roads, or on the highway
(big truck wind gusts) for that matter.
If I add all my repairs, maintenence, and fixing up I've done
I know I've got $10,000 in mine right now so that aught to make
you feel GOOD!!! But then, a lot of the $5,000 I've put into
mine is because I'd rather go "new" then find an old working
replacement, and they all didn't "HAVE" to be done.
Awning... I could have continued to live with the torn
& repaired awning, or just had new canvas put on but
it was a bi*** to get off the old style hooks....
Rear Springs.... the 2" lean on the passenger side wasn't
"hurting anything" and not being able to tow any weight
at all, was well inconvienant.
Entry Door.... now I can put that $20.00 dead bolt in to
make my partner feel safer....
New mattress pads and cushions.... I sleep better now...
belts and hoses.... well that's something my father taught
me to do with ANY used vehicle....
Now the rest were "must's".... what good is a RV if the Fridge
doesn't work!!! You might as well be staying in a hotel room!! LOL
and the alternator and radiator... well they speak for themselves!
All in all, I'm not mad or upset.... I am happy to be learning tho!!
I only wish the RV that I "really wanted" (my managers) was up
for sale when I bought mine..... 1989, 28ft, with double bed in
the rear.... (my dream). NOW (actually 6 months after I bought
mine) they have it up for sale.... Asking $10,000... but will take
$8,000.... needs a new air conditioner.... THAT'S ALL!!! THAT'S
what makes me sick!!! LOL.... I was happy with my "steal of a deal"
when I got it... that's all that matters!!! I'm still happy
with my rig (other than that much desired rear bed) and I will
probably keep it till I can't climb into the front bunk anymore.
(hopefully that will be many many many years from now). At my
estimated $75.00 per night savings on hotel room alone, my RV will
still pay for itself in time.... even tho it's "twice as long" now!!
Well... I've rambled on long enough....
Hope this all makes you feel better!!!
