RE: Are there good used DP's under $40,000?

The best time to shop for a used RV up North is in the Fall/Winter; people don't want to pay for storage all Winter if they are planning to get rid of them. In Florida starting at the end of Snowbird season in April is best. Good luck! And I'll be around Florida then!

RE: Are there good used DP's under $40,000?

I've been away - just caught up on replies. Thanks to all! We're going to hold off till next year. After speaking with friends and family back east it doesn't look like a good idea for them or us to be visiting. Hopefully Spring once The Plague is under control. I'll be shopping this winter and all good advice will be put to use!

Yes Peter, the dinette is accessible. That's great - so many are tight

We now have a 2019 sunseeker 2850 le. Nice! Is the dinette accessible with the slide in?

Not mine, looks like something the OP might be looking for; Click for DP Thanks! I'd certainly consider a Winnebago Of this ilk. This one is a loong way away though.

Look at the Foretravels available at Well they have one unit at $40,000 a Tiffin Phaeton which does look nice.

They're out there, for sure. A few years ago a friend of ours sold a 1998 Dutch Star DP for $15k. The thing was well maintained and in excellent shape. Banks don't like the older stuff so he needed a cash buyer. Look around and have the funds available, you'll find one. This would be my ideal situation. I am a cash buyer..and a fan of working directly with owners who have taken pride in their things!

RE: Are there good used DP's under $40,000?

Sounds terrific. Yes - they're out there...the trick will be to find a good one. I've been reading the threads - learning what I can about what's good and what's not. It is more than a bit daunting. I'm familiar with PPL and have searched their site. Some times it seems a lot like opening the fridge every half hour expecting to find something new :R

RE: Working online while in motion

This is one of those things where I"d need to be there to tell you more. The SAFEST seat is the passenger seat properly belted in Now on SOME RV's you can, with a bit of work, put a small desk top there with little issue on mine there is a "Storage compartment" (The "Glove box) I could take the lid off it and attach a larger desktop type platform. There is some danger in this (pad the exposed end) and a few other complications but... I have no better answer. I've seen some with a desk that folds out of the dash..that could work.

Are there good used DP's under $40,000?

I searched the topic a number of ways and came up empty. Sorry if this has been beaten to death. Obviously care and maintenance are paramount..but in general..are there good DP's in the 2000 to let's say 2006 range that can be had for less than $40,000..ideally $35,000 to leave room for what it's bound to need?

RE: Working online while in motion

You need what ever will give the smoothest ride. I love my class C, but it would NOT fit your needs as it comes from the factory. I wonder if an air ride could be retro fitted or if there is a class C out there with air ride? Thanks for the reply! We're not shopping C's..but I did look at the VB system. Looks like it's kind of Sprinter Focused but in any event the price installed is about $7,500 - as of 2018 which seems to be the date of most information.

RE: Working online while in motion

My wife did medical transcription one weekend we went to the races. She worked while I drove That's pretty much the same thing. What's your rig?

RE: Working online while in motion

Should not make a difference on line what ever the ride Right..I guess I should re-frame the question asking if there's enough difference in the smoothness of the ride from a gasser to an air suspension diesel to warrant the price difference. My only experience being the Winnie which pretty much rode like a school bus.

RE: Working online while in motion

Does she get motion sick easily? My wife can only look at her phone for a few minutes at a time or she will be sick. If we are in stop and go or stop lights, she gets sick even looking up. She could never look at a computer screen - neither could I... That's not an issue - for either of us for that matter.

Working online while in motion

No...not the driver:R We're selling our house and moving to another state. Before we settle there we want to take a month or so and do some of the traveling we haven't been able to do all these years. My wife has online tasks to do for our business and to that end she'd like to be able to work at a table or desk (Secured for safety) while we drive. We want to make the best choice of Class A platform - Gas or DP? - with this in mind as one of the decision criteria. Does anyone have experience with this? Will the ride be smooth enough for that? Our RV experience is an 80's Winnebago Elandan that we never really took out on a long trip and a Chevy conversion van. Neither would have been good at this although the van was better than the Elandan. Thanks for looking!
