If it is a 1997 model I would first checkif it is fuel injected or carborater.
Carberator model I wouldn't buy.
I just checked and 1997 didn't have any Georgetowns They started in 1998. Question this. How long is it?
How old are the tires? Are they good for another 25,000 miles?
What maintenance has been done on the brakes? Should have been replaced by now.
Has the motorhome pulled any vehicles? Is so has the transmission ever had any major work? If not it probably would soon.
If you are planning to use it for 3-5 years expect some major expenses.
You should be only paying about $6,000 -$7,000 for this as per the 1998 version of a M-346S which is the largest one they had then. 34 ft.
The smaller models 32ft should be in the $4,000-$5,000 range
But like I said expect lats of problems and costs. Parts will be not be readily available, etc.
