Now, I certainly know that it could been a disaster and that I REALLY rolled the dice. But the seller was a really nice guy and I paid right at $30K less than any dealer wanted for the exact same coach. In fact, a dealer in California told me I was buying the coach for substantially less than he could have bought it for wholesale.
The seller gave a me a ten minute "poor mans PDI" before I left. Having previously had an older coach, being pretty handy (mechanically) PLUS 50 lbs of manuals/documentation, I was ready to boogie!!
Fortunately, it was exactly the right decision for me; could not have worked out better.
