My Mom is thinking of buying an 88 Roadtrek with 150K miles for 5 K off someone on Craigslist and driving it from PA to southern CA. I'd just like to know what any experienced owners here think of this vehicle. Moms an experienced cross country driver but our vehicles were never this old. She wants this to avoid hotels etc. when she drives cross country twice a year to visit my Grandma. She isn't a mechanic but she is real good at keeping our cars/trucks running, knows enough to do her own oil changes etc. Still, the age of this vehicle is worrying me!
This is the listing. It'll only be up for another day or so.
Am I worrying for nothing or should I call my mother?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
