Until this last week, I'd never even ridden in an RV let alone gone to an RV park or camping (except for Forced Camping, Army Style).
But I have done my homework....much of it from this helpful site and just now joined.
I've settle on either a new, 2016 Prism 2250le at my local dealership ($74k but I'm trading in a late model Mustang and getting decent money for it, so the amount financed should be quite manageable.
The other option is a private seller '14 Thor Chateau w 30k miles but the price is nearly identical. My wife and I are going to see the Thor this afternoon and make our final decision at that time.
Until then, can anyone shed light on why the used Thor would be so pricey? Wondering if there are quality issues with Prisms I don't know about?
The Prism seems to actually have a few advantages over the Thor (besides being new): generator on 'utility' vs. 'patio' side, full awning on the patio side, additional pop up counter space, dinette vs inflatable bed, real oven, much better rear basement storage arrangement.
The Thor (well in the pics so far) looks to have a better exterior appearance, has an owner installed roof DISH dome, and better quality cabinetry, winterization pack (not a real selling point in San Antonio).
Any, and I mean, ANY advice is greatly appreciated. And it doesn't have to be just limited to my question above. I mean, the whole water tank transfer thing completely baffles me.
