Buying a rental

Post  Mike on Fri Feb 27, 2009 11:50 am

so what are everyone's opinions on buying a rental RV? personally I think the Cruise America units look good and someone isn't likely to abuse an expensive rental as they are a cavalier

Our advise is don't do it! We bought a 2005 Forest River Sunseeker (in 2007), from a reputable dealer, that had been a rental. It looked pretty good on the surface but it was worn out beyond it's years and milage. The list of things needing repair or replacement is too long to list here, but suffice it to say that from broken springs and bent frame in the sofa (it looked ok until you sat on it) to the loose gearshift lever and passenger armrest to the sometimes inoperative slide, etc, it was a big disappointment. Some things were very nice, Michelin tires were excellent, the brakes were good, the oil had been changed and other routine maintenance preformed regularly, and it ran well. However, it took many hours and dollars to get it to the point that we could go camping in it without worrying that we could get back home without a failure of some kind! We sold it to another dealer (who should know) and were glad to be rid of it! Crying or Very sad

Tough question, but IMO I would steer clear of it. High or low end unit, it's still a rental and not taken care of like a "personal" investment.
