Default New to me 1995 Rialta 22'



Hi all,



I just purchased a 1995 Rialta 21' RV.


This is our first RV. I fly from Victoria to Wisconsin to pick it up Sunday.


It has 66,000 miles on it and appears to be exceptionally well maintained.


I am very technical and not bad with a wrench, capable of most mechanical tasks.


I am looking for guidance around any special things I need to check on before driving 3500 miles home.


Any advice?



I look forward to becoming engaged with this forum.



Best regards,


GJS

Hi, I am not a Rialta owner yet but am looking to move up from a EuroVan Winny and am interested in your experience with your new one. My question would be performance. I know the limitations of the 2.5 and would be interested in how it pulls what must be a heavier vehicle.



Have or had a safe trip and look forward to your comments.

Hi Babuoy,



I am back with my new to me Rialta.


So far I like what I have. It is 18 years old and has a few issues, but I paid $15,200 for a 95 with 67k miles on it. There is a Gold model 2004 on eBay for $44k. So I'm thinkin I'll manage the issues.


It pulled just fine on my trip home. It had to be quite a steep hill for the van not to keep pace. I only had one serious long hill where I slowed to about 55MPH while I went up it. Most other were at 60-65 without issue. I had an average of 17.4MPG over 2200 miles. My worst was 13MPG while drivining 70MPH+ .


(drag goes up up exponentially after about 55mph)


Anyway, I was pleased, it performed well.



I do have a problem today though. I'm about to post it here and hope someone with experiance can help.



Cheers,


GJS

Hey GJS,



Recently had a Bladder cancer scare. Because of this my wife and I decided to start "living" and we are on the lookout for a Rialta. Boy they are expensive for such old vehicles. Anyway I was wondering what your problem was and interested in hearing about it. Thanks JIm
