Default I may have found my first RV?

What am I missing? General comments?

2008 Pleasure Way Excel TS
40,000 miles on the F-350 V10 6.8L engine
Asking price $55,000.

From the pictures it appears to be in excellent condition. A long road trip next week for an inspection will confirm.

My insurance agent qouted $450 annually. That price is less then my truck!

Storage will be a concrete pad beside my house garage.

Primarily use will be three or four, 600 mile trips per year to see the grandkids. Use as a spare bedroom during the visits.

Secondary use will be for 2 or 3 local trips to town a month. I will be selling my truck. Perhaps a trip out west to visit family. Once a month a long weekend trip. Might get used more when the wife joins me in retirement.

With the current Stockmarket the $55,000 will not be a problem. The main problem is me wrapping my mind around spending that kind of money for a "toy".

I'm a technical orientated type and general handyman so I will take care of maintenance and repairs other then the chassis.

What am I missing?

Perhaps a trip to Florida should be in the cards. Cheaper asking price and only 31k miles on it.

Happy hunting.

Take a look at brand new ProMaster based Class B's for a price comparison to a 12 year old RV.

Also, NADA gives some guidance on worth: https://www.nadaguides.com/RVs/2008/...3049675/Values
