Yep, I retired out of Bangor in 2006. We love the area up here as well and it will be home for a long time.

Subsailor. As concerned as you sound about this issue $200.00 seems fair for your peace of mind.

Glenn, I bought my Berkshire having only seen pictures. I did run a CarFax on the VIN for some piece of mind and the buy back guarantee.

Thanks Paul, I did that as well. Still a bit nerve racking. I have bought cars a couple times site unseen and came out well, but never anything that cost quite this much.

I am currently in the process of "thinking happy thoughts".

Paul/Glen- were your coaches used or new when you purchased them? If new, why would you need a Carfax report?

Glen,
OK, Then I can see why you would want as much info on the coach as possible. Don't know if Paul's was used when he purchased his.

Tom, my coach was a year old with 11k miles on it. I also found that my 2014 Berk was built on a 2013 chassis.

X2, which I think is common. My biggest hurdle was keeping our dmv from making it a 2013 ! After 18 or so hrs. over the course of 3 days I won.

Glenn, I have the old style level pad foots and have used them extensively for the past four years on all kinds of terrain. Early on, I went to Tractor Supply and purchased a 4 foot by 6 foot heavy rubber mat used by farmers for cow and horse stalls. I cut the mat into 2 foot squares. I put these between the ground and the level pad foot. I drilled a small hole in the corner of each mat and put a loop of nylon cord. This made retrieving the mats easier when I retracted the jacks. The nice thing about the pads is that they are biggest enough and strong enough to disburse the weight over a larger area. Here is a picture of the 4 by 6 mat.
