Considering buying a 1997 Winnebago Minnie Winnie Class C, 24 ft, fully equipped, 460 engine, Onan 4K generator. A trade in with 52,000 miles. It was advertised for $8.995 at TRI-AM RV, a local and respected RV dealer. I did get them down to about $7,000 for a tentative purchase. NADA value is $9,500 or so. It looks in very good shape and prior to buying a TRI-AM maintenance person will go over every system with you to make sure that everything works, including the holding tanks, etc. They will also go with you for a long test drive. The sales person did mention that the engine AC was not working properly and there had been a small leak on the diver's side overhead CAP window. They estimated $1,200 to repair the AC and $3,000 to repair the CAP, which would entail removing the CAP and replacing it with a CAP that has no windows. The current CAP has a front and two side windows. I was told that their maintenance people make $100 per hour and it would take 22 hours for the work plus parts.
Does any of this sound reasonable and should I continue to pursue this motor home?
