Advice on purchase of 2015 XL 378

New to the forum - any advice will be appreciated. We have first refusal on a 2015 XL 378 with 2000 miles coming into a local dealer. Asking $105. We would be buying our first motorhome after a number of years pulling Keystone travel trailers. Any issues I should know about or check on this model? Is it a reliable rig? Will be pulling a car and motorcycle and will be close to the 5000 lb towing limit. We plan to go "full time" with it. Thanks in advance.

We have a 2014 living full-time. One of the best floorplans in the industry. Congrats. We have about 12k on it.

We have had ours for one year, and I must say that it is a really good layout. There is always things that you want to change. I have added solar panels, I used another relay on my power inverter to have some ac outlets. always looking to do the furniture better. So goes life with a RV

We have a little over 50,000 k on our 2012 and would buy one again. Make sure everything works because you take it off their lot.

We have a 2013 378 and love it.
I would think 105 is a little high for a 2015 model
Depends on what extras they put in the unit
Like rwehba said, make sure the steps have either been changed to kwikee or the upgrade fix has been done before taking it off the lot.
We tow a Honda CRV and don't even notice it.
A car and motorcycle can be done but it will be hitting the max tow weight.
Happy RVing, you'll love the floorplan

IMO $105K is a good price depending on your location. The miles should be from the FR to the dealer. Does it have a full warranty?
