Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.

We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

2001 Tioga Arrow 25' sounds awesome to me. What do I know?

I have seen the same post on Craigslist for a few weeks. I haven't had an RV but have been pretty much reading about it for a couple of years. This one ticks the boxes for me as a first time RV owner: Dry bath, bunk over cab so at least one bed is ready for sleeping, non-carpet flooring and not too crazy interior. I am hoping to find a 25' or under class c with these attributes. Can I post a CL link here? https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/rvs/d/2001-fleetwood-tioga-arrow/6285198298.html They want $17,000. That's a lot of dough but doesn't seem out of line with what I am seeing out there. (This RV would be for a weekend here or there and a few weeks for vacation.)

I don't have any experience with older motorhomes, but a check of the NADA guide shows that the average retail for the unit described is $7,800 - less than half what they're asking for it. With that in mind, and the fact that it's a 16-year-old motorhome, I wouldn't consider it at that price. If it's in pristine condition and you're still interested, have a third-party mechanic go over it head-to-toe to make sure the engine, drive train, suspension, etc. are in excellent condition. If the seller won't agree to that, walk away. Also keep in mind that RV appliances (ACs, refrigerators, etc.) are not "forever" equipment and 16 years is past the average life expectancy for things like that.

I agree with Second Chance, if you are interested pay for an inspection...and you inspect it too...with a disinterested but RV experienced friend who owns a C.


Winnebago TT 2101DS & 2020 Silverado LTZ Z71. 300 watts WindyNation solar w/MPPT, 2 Trojan T-125s. TALL flag pole. Prefer USFS, COE, BLM, USF&WS, NPS, TVA, state/county camps. 14 year Army vet-11B40 then 11A - old MOS 1542 & 1560.
