Here are a few tips for buying a Class A Motorhome:

Exterior Body

  • Look for dings, scrapes, chips, cracked windshield, missing or damaged trim.  
  • Look at the condition of the lights and the basement and engine doors. If a Class A looks worn down, it is!

Interior Body

  • If the Class A is new, take the time to feel the quality of the interior. If the cabinets feel cheap or are off their hinges, you can bet you will have trouble with them down the road.
  • Check the condition of the furniture, cabinets, kitchen drawers and counters. A Class A can have low mileage and still look worn. If the interior has been lived in, the result can be heavy wear and tear.
  • Investigate the build and construction thoroughly. A Class A interior will experience an earthquake every time you take the road. If you plan to live in your Class A full time, a stable build is essential to low maintenance.

The Mechanics:

  • The engine should be well cared for and clean.
  • If you are purchasing a gas Class A, the lower the miles, on it the better.
  • If you are buying diesel, you can allow for more miles without concern.
  • Be sure to check all fluids, tires, suspension, and brakes. If possible, look at the rig’s work history.
  • Whether you purchase your Class A new or used, make sure to read the fine print in the warranty.

As always, spend the money and have a professional inspect your purchase before you sign on the dotted line. You may save yourself a bunch of trouble down the road.
