RE: First Time Buyer...Updated 03/06/2006

The information was abundant and informative. Thanks. I have never owned an RV and am contemplating going out full time with my wife and two teen aged kids. As much as I think a fifth wheel would possibly give us the most living space, I feel the cost of a truck and suitable sized rig(both used) would be prohibitive, as compared to a used class a. I've seen units ranging up to 50K which is around where I would like to be, but I'm afraid to lay out that money when there are usually no warranties on used vehicles. Are there ways to protect myself from this through insurance or private warranty companies. Any advice on any of what I have shared would be appreciated. $50K will buy a lot of MH. The newer the better typically. 10 year/100K miles can be a sweet spot for some people. Diesel engine/transmission rebuild costs can be $10K-$20K in worse case which would be very rare I expect. Gas MH's cost less but come with less bells and less $$$ for repairs typically. RV living is full of risks so getting over worrying about what can go wrong ASAP is key for many. Warranty companies sell the policies to make money so I would never support their cause but some do. As long as you do not go new no mistake should cost over $20K in the first year or two to correct or get out of RV'ing. Best of success.
