Also, I think that most Class C's have the same Ford E450 chassis with the same V-10?

So we have all heard the term "they don't make them like they used too". I wonder if thats really true. I would love to hear your opinions. I am possibly interested in looking at a 2006 Cedar Creek Silver Back that appears to be in immaculate condition with all maintenance done yearly. So assuming that is true would you rather buy an older unit such as the one I just described or something newer that has also been well maintained? Is older really better assuming it has been maintained?


We have a 2004. Nothing fancy, has everything we need, and is still going strong. Paid off too, so a new one is not in my near future! The advantage to older is if there's no water damage/leaks, it was made very well. Anything can be fixed. Plus, while new is nice, older ones have more character and less glitz.
