Valid points, but I haven't seen any used 2301 Foresters around me, let alone within a day's driving distance, hence the interest in going halfway across the country to look at this unit...
Pricing locally for used units seems to be higher than in other parts of the country, and dealers don't seem to be willing to match prices found on the internet..
I'm kind of torn at this point since I've got a refundable deposit on the unit at this time, but I'd be out my time and plane fare if I go check this out and it's not what we're looking for.
I swing between just taking a chance on it and going out there to see it, and calling the whole thing off and just waiting until something in our budget/specs shows up closer to us...

Here's why: I looked at a lot of used units and there is a lot of potential for things not to be right. Just a lot of question marks given the distance.
I would think there would be a good amount of used RV's in your area (although not sure what impact the recent fires there had on supply and demand).
As to the two warranties the dealer talked about: One is the 3 / 36 bumper the bumper chassis warranty. There is also a 5 / 100 (???) power train warranty. Any Ford dealer could handle that work.
But to be clear, the greater likelihood for something to be / go wrong is with the "house" portion and, again, it's just a long distance away in my opinion.
