Ratings Reviews Complains Thoughts

Greetings everyone.......
Old Timer RVer, retired, currently looking for a motorhome to last a few good years........
I just found a 2000 33' Reflection by Forest River, with 27,398 miles.
Amenities Include.... a 260Hp Cummins Engine on a Spartan Chassis, Air Bag Suspension, Exhaust Brake, 1 Slide-out, Onan Diesel Generator, 2 Ducted Air Conditioners, Levelers, Double Door Gas/110V Dometic Refrigerator, Main Awning, TV, Outside Shower, Convection Microwave, 3 Burner Range and Oven.
My questions are:
How good are the Forest River motorhomes?
Is the Cummins 260 enough engine for the 33 feet motorhome with toad?
For a diesel pusher with low miles the price is appx $10,000 - $12,000 below ook.. Sounds to good to be true? I remember what my dad told me and that's why I'm here.
What are the good and bads of owning a Forest River Reflection Motorhome.
Please don't hold back.........at 72 yrs of age and almost broke, this will probably be my last RV purchase.......
Thanks in Advance for any & all replies ...........

It is 20 yrs old and probably parked outside. Low miles is great if you can deal with the fading cosmetics and be prepared to do a multitude of assorted repairs.
The low price is probably a reflection (pun) that it is a fixer-upper. I'd worry about roof maintenance and the leak damage caused down stream. Inspect carefully.

Not at all familiar with your type of motorhome. Get thorough inspections learn to fix carry spare pieces and parts. We bought an 11 FR Berkshire last August 390 RB 360hp we love her. 19 k miles we’ve added 5k more to the odometer. She was very well cared for and is fun to take out. Best of luck. The link says sales pending. Had you moved forward?
