A. It sounds overpriced, but you can check the RV section at www.nada.com.

B. See the thread on this page (currently) on "Roadtrek Steering" for comments on _possible_ Dodge issues. A few have real problems; most apparently don't. Test drive it on the interstate with heavy, fast passing truck traffic, on curvy roads, and in wind if possible.

C. The generator has 'way too few hours on it. It should have been run at least 2 hours a month, just to keep the fuel from forming varnish and keep condensation dried out. Put a voltage and frequency meter on it when It's running under load. Figure probably a new carb ($250-300?); hopefully there are no other problems.

D) If it has the big single rear door, check the area around the back door for evidence of leaking.

I agree, the price is too high.

Jim's advice on driving the rig is very important. Dodges can be a little "loosey-goosey" at times, and some are downright scary to drive. You have to try it at highway speeds, in traffic, with trucks blowing by - and preferably on a windy day. You don't wanna take a quick little test drive then find out it's "white knuckle" time the first time you go on a trip.

I also think the price is high...there's a dealer here in New Jersey that has advertised a 2003 Pleasure-Way Excel-TD with less than 10,000 miles for $45,000. That's a year newer, with way less mileage, for only $1,500 more.
