Hi, I recently purchased a 2004 190 Versatile. 93k miles and it runs great. I try to do my own work, so I'll probably be asking for advice, as well as (hopefully) sharing some. Thanks!

Good for you! I purchased a 2004 190 Popular a year ago. I like doing my own repairs and upgrades. So who knows... maybe we can help one another out? I can tell you this forum is a great place for learning.

Congrats on your purchase! Do you mind if I ask the price? I'm new to RV and thinking of getting a 2005 170 RT with a 6.0 liter with just little over 100k miles for around $40k is a good deal. It clean, new tire and I love the size.

I think that's too much. You can find one with a lot less mileage for that price. Here is a 190 on Craigslist: 2004 with 17,000 miles for $45,000. It's a little bigger than you want, but if you keep looking you can find one for a good price.

And here's a 2004 Pleasure Way with just under 100K miles for $22,500.

The biggest RV show in California is in September at the Pomona fairgrounds. Lots of people buy there and then they sell their old rigs or the dealer takes the trade-in and sells them.

Good luck in your search.

The September RV show is in Hershey Pennsylvania. The Pomona RV show is in October.

Is there some way to initiate a nation wide search on Craigs list? The options I see are limited to cities and states.

Oops, my bad. The Pomona RV show this year will be Oct 6-15, 2017.

https://10times.com/california-rv-show

AFIK, Craigslist is limited to specific areas, but once you pick a city (or major metropolitan area), you can click a box on the left that says "Include nearby areas" and then you get a broader search area.

For nationwide searches, I use RVTrader and RVT.com.
