Hello Fellow travelers!

We are looking to buy a preowned Class C RV. Our ideal RV is a Thor Four Winds 27R because of the ceiling height and king sized bed. We are certainly open to others but want around 25- 27 foot, high interior ceilings, dinette and a chair or small couch.

I am looking for advice on good web sites that offer good deals on preowned rigs and any suggestions on the type of RV.

In advance, thanks!

Hi BB,

Three things to look for.

1. look for leaks.
2. look harder for leaks.
3. LOOK EVEN HARDER FOR LEAKS.

Pretty much everything else can be fixed.


Regards, Don
My ride is a 28 foot Class C, 256 watts solar, 556 amp hours of AGM in two battery banks 12 volt batteries, 3000 watt Magnum hybrid inverter, Sola Basic Autoformer, Microair Easy Start.

I don't know about good deals, but rvtrader.com is kind of the goto website for finding specific RVs.

Some of the best deals I've seen have been repossessed units. We bought our Four Winds from a bank through a local repo agent years ago and got what I considered a good deal. Problem with this is that you don't get to select what someone else didn't pay for, so you might have a tough time finding a particular unit. Repos are also often shall we say distressed by their previous owners. Ours wasn't, but many are.

You might try the Rental Market there you will get a good deal and a well maintained RV.

El Monte RV have a lot of Thor Fourwinds along with many other choices like the Coachman Leprechaun that may suit your needs at a very fair price.

Four Winds are commonly used as rental units because they're like Timex watches. At least that's what a salesman told me about 10 years ago.

For our younger viewers these commercials were from the 1950s to the 1960s Timex Takes a Lickin but keeps on Tickin [emoticon]

If you don't need to finance, you may get a better price from a private party selling due to health problems, etc. Best to pay a pro truck mechanic and an RV repair service to inspect and give written estimate for truck and house box fixes and repairs needed. Tires over 5 years old may need replacing.
