I am looking to buy my first RV, and this one looks interesting. (Yes this is my budget)

Anyone have anything good bad or otherwise to say about this vehicle?
Seems like a nice vehicle for the price
....I appreciate any input as I am a literal newbie.

thanks!

That is a nice and clean older motorhome with low miles, I would make a move on that if I was wanting a older motorhome, if you do buy it redo the whole inside and update the colors.

We ordered a Georgie Boy Cruise Master in January of ‘96. We still have it Will be 23 years old in April. That was the first year GB offered slideouts. But only on the Swinger. We opted for the CM without the slide, we have never had any regrets. They also offered the newer motor but it was also it’s first year being offered. We stuck with the 454, probably should have gone with the vortex motor. But we have what we believe to be one of the most reliable units ever built for a great price. We love ours even without a slide. Other than the overheating on the 454 engine in all these years we’ve only had normal maintenance done. Tires, belts, airbags, brakes and fuel pump (which is in the gas tank ugh,). It has been to east coast, west coast north and south and Canada. Never a problem. We always planned on upgrading when we retired 20 years ago but nothing could compare with our baby.

I have a 1996 GBM Swinger with one living room slide. I bought it in 2004 with 24,000 miles on it and put more than 100,000 miles on it my self. The exhaust manifold was leaking when I bought it but Headers fixed that problem along with a FF muffler and CAI the HP was increased by about 80 hp so performace was very good. My plan was to buy an older MH to see if I liked the hobby and lean about MH's then buy a newer one based on what I learned, but 15 years later I still have the same one like Rog and Nan. Rather than write a novel about the problems I had with it you can search under my name and you can read in detail or just PM me and I can answer your questions and tell you what to look out for. The front end on the P30 chassis was problematic and costly to repair but I don't think the Ford has the IFS front end.
