Patience is key when looking for used vehicles, but buying new is no guarantee of problem free either. Quality control on new vehicles seems to be a thing of the past, and many new rigs wind up spending a considerable amount of time in the shop.
Inspections on used vehicles are always a good idea if you’re not qualified to do it yourself. In my experience, a well maintained older vehicle is much less likely to turn into a problem child.
With any camper, floor plans mean EVERYTHING. Floor plans mean the difference between comfortable and convenient, and uncomfortable and cramped. Windows greatly improve both your driving and camping experiences.
With patience, there are campers out there that are perfect for everybody, and in any budget range.
