I'm looking at buying a 1984 Ford Honey. I don't know much about these. I wonder if you all think it worth the $6000 she wants for it. The listing says, "1984 honey 23 ft motorhome rv. I hate to see it go always been good to me just time for something bigger. Has lots of work done over the years but it was done right not slapped together and painted! Every window or seam is sealed with rv lap sealant the roof was painted with roof sealer so no water leaks.Up frount above the cab was rebuilt from the tin to the paneling with new insulation as the same for the back wall in the bathroom. It has a new refrigerator electric only but all the other appliances work as they should including furnace,and ac will freeze you out. As for the truck all the work was done professionally it has new exhaust manifold gasket, both fuel tanks, water pump,voltage regulator, u joints,rubbor brake hoses frount and rear,steels in good shape,frount and rear wheel bearings serviced with new seals,all brakes have been inspected good with new rear wheel cylinders and hardware,all fluids front to rear changed,tires are only 2 years old." Thank you.

First of all, it’s 37 years old. It sounds like they have done a lot of work and correctly, But you would want to have that verified and that work is not hiding anything more serious, ie water damage in lower parts of the walls and floor.
You say that you are not familiar with the units, so I would recommend a GOOD RV inspector to completely go over the vehicle. They could possibly advise on the value $$. There still could be more and costly repairs possible in the near future.

I think the decimal point is in the wrong place! Unless it is showroom condition, a 37 year old rv of any form would probably not be worth that amount unless it is an Airstream and even they have had bad years. I have had sellers try to put value on their memories but I don't care to pay for them. Keep looking.

Could be decent.
Things that stick out are it obviously rotted out front and back to need “rebuilt” and no L.P. fridge means basically no fridge without being on shore power or setting up a big battery system.
That, and it’s carbureted and the 80s were the absolute low point in automobile power and reliability. Imo.

That’s the bad, aside from other things that can’t be gleaned from the add. You can find the good in it.
Personally, no one should have put all those repairs into that old of a previously rotted out RV, so I’d be super skeptical why all the money spent recently and now for sale.
No mention of miles or major maintenance/repairs. Like transmission namely.

Bias belted proper size 8 ply tires are hard to get, many change wheels to size and type that fit modern steel belted tires. House box hardware, tail light lenses, etc. are collector's items. Save your money to buy a much newer current brand rig that has market value.

That’s an excellent place to start…”Let me see the maintenance records.” Next I’d check the date codes on all the tires. Wanta bet on that? I’ll guess 5 years or older.

She wants $6000 for the memories. Way overpriced, but she would be insulted if you offered what it is worth. $500 max.
