Buying Father-in-Law's RV - Good Deal?
Hi! Wanted to ask this specific question...
My husband's father has gotten too old for RV-ing and wants to sell his RV to us, currently located in California. We currently live in Hawaii, but could take it for short vacations on the mainland for the next 4-5 years; we hope to go full time after that. We have only spent time staying in friends' RVs, but love it and want to do it for retirement. I'm nervous about the large chunk of money, especially since we won't be able to use it full time for a few years. But I'm willing if this would be a good investment in the long run. Let me know what you think!
Here's the deal, do you think it's a good deal?
He says he inquired and since it's passing from father to son, no taxes
2005 Minnie Winnie 30'
Engine was replaced under warranty less than 2 years ago
Around 30K miles on coach, about 5K on engine
Comes with towing kit
Comes with everything except personal effects (two flat screen TVs, satellite dish, all kitchen items, propane tanks, fabric cover)
Friend has land in California where we could store it for free when not using it
