We have an opportunity to buy a '92 27' Mallard Class C with only (unbelievable) 4500 miles on it. It belonged to an elderly man (1st owner) who passed away and relatives sold it to the second owner who put 4500 miles on it and because of family problems must sell it. It's going for $19,900. Opinions about the RV and the deal.

Lack of use would be a big concern. Try every appliance, water heater especially, and if you dare, taste the water coming out the pipes. From such limited use over 8 years, things tend to grow in strange places. The hoses and tires probably need replacing from dry rot. I know things change just from over the winters let alone 8 years. Please don't let me talk you out of it, I am a "the glass is half-empty person" by birth. If you choose to buy it, you'll learn more the first year than in ten with a new one. good luck.

    Armysarge,

    I had an 1987 28' Class C Mallard and had a "ton" of problems with it...

    Continual roof leaks, breaking plastic parts such as the the front cowl(s) just behind the cab, front cap leaking and water damaged and the like...

    Having said that, that was before Fleetwood took them over... Whether or not the Fleetwood takeover resulted in any quality gain would have to be confirmed by someone who bought after the takeover...

    In that Fleetwood has been having their problems as of late it could be a dubious question...

    However, as in any MH or TT product, there are happy owners and frustrated owners... If the price is good and the coach looks good, it may be worth a try...

    I will say this... My Mallard was on a Ford 460 chassis and it was a strong runner and I never had any chassis problems...

    Best Regards,
    Les
