Default 2002 Trail Lite RV Comments

High Everyone,

I'm looking at purchasing a 2002 Trail-Lite Class B Plus on Saturday. It has 100K miles on it and looks like it is in pretty good shape. They are asking $10,000.

I would like any coments if you have experience with this type of RV and if there any items I should consider.

I am going to have the vehicle inspected prior to purchase, but I'm interested in the quality of this model and whether 100K miles is too much for this type of vehicle.

Thanks.

The trail-lites I have seen are not class B's- they are class C rvs.


the distiction being a van type cab- with a rv "box" dropped onto the frame-

If this is a GM version, I have had great luck with GM.s and have a 2001 4.8L 165K in my pick up which has been great. my class B has a 2005 6.0L 92K

so 100000 is not beyond what a well cared for motor and tranny will do- a mechanical inspection will give an indication of condition- spend the money to have a tech look at it. the condition of all the fluids will indicate as to whether this has been cared for which will affect it;s future life.

If buying from the owner- how does all the other stuff look, the house, yard, other vehicles...
a drawback to a dealer lot is you cant guess much about how the owner takes acre of their stuff.

and have all the Rv systems looked at by a specialist, unless you are self-qualified to do so.

Mike

There were quite a few models in that lineup.

I had a 20' or 21' Trail lite and compared it to the Roadtrek I owned here: http://www.classbforum.com/forums/f24/b-vs-b-720.html

Mike gave some good advice.

A $10,000 RV would be rare around here unless it's from the late '80's or maybe very early '90's.

On any Class C I open all the cupboards to inspect where the ceiling meets the wall to check for leaks.

Mike,

Thanks. It is a Chevy. The pictures look good. We're driving down to Houston to check it out. I already called a mechanic to looka at the particulars...engine, transmission, roof, etc.

What do you think about the price vs. the mileage?

We had a t-l class A years ago. Loved the Chevy and frame, as well as living space. But, would warn you about sidewall de lamination around windows. They are not high end units.
