      David & Leslie What about considering a RV sales firm that buys/sells the motorhome model which you are looking at purchasing?
    • Curt & Isabel
      Marc & Sara The RVDA has a dealer search engine that you enter your zip code and search radius to locate a dealer.  Make sure you get a master certified tech to do the inspection. We're in Centralia and use Brazel's RV, I know they could do the inspection, but y...  more

        Curt & Isabel Annie and Mike; Did you use someone else? We are in So. Calif. thus the need to find a local inspector. Google is a good resort to check out but we're hoping someone in the area knows of a good inspector.

      Annie and Mike OBrien Sorry no, we decided to not use an Inspector.

      Tex and Susan | Coastie Castaways Try Auburn Kent Valley RV. I don’t know if they offer this service but they are the only ones we trust to work on our Newmar. They are beyond amazing. They are family owned, small service facility and are amazing. Tell them we told you to call.

    We can't wait for August as we are going to the month on the Oregon Coast. We will start in Astoria and at the end we will have made our way to Brookings. We are staying a week in each spot to give us as much time as we need to explore.
