Consider purchasing a 2005 Holiday Rambler Neptune diesel pusher with 58,000 miles.


It has new Michelin Tires and new batteries.  Anything else we should request?

Anyone an owner of Holiday Rambler Neptune?  Would love feedback

We purchased a 2002 DP 3 years ago, it had 92,000 miles. With a diesel somewhat higher mileage is not a bad thing.
I paid to have a certified RV inspector go over the entire coach prior to purchase, it was worth it. One can even have a fluid analysis done on the engine.
Great to have new batteries and tires, but everything else might be 15 years old ( ours had newer ACs )
There are so many "complicated" systems. That is 12 volt and 120 volt electric. A fridge and hot water heater that runs on electric and gas.
And a plumbing system that has been subjected to every one of those 58,000 miles.
We had to replace all the skylights as they leaked. Look for water damage, as in stains, soft floor, sag in ceiling.
One might be able to drive it, but it's way more involved than buying a car. Or a regular house.
From what I have learned on this forum, while there certainly are some high quality manufactures, RVs are not held to the same standards as cars.
Just different companies using many of the same components, and hopefully putting them together well.
Does it have double pane windows, good for keeping out noise, but they can get fogged between the panes if sealant breaks down.
IMHO, I felt a diesel, which is more costly up front would be an all around better MH.

All the best

Get an independent inspection done. Worth every dime.

We have a 2003 Endeavor 40’ with 330 Cummins. This is our second Monaco motorhome. We loved our LaPalma and the only reason we changed was I wanted a diesel pusher.  The ride and comfort are great in the Endeavor. Monaco built great products during those years, so you should be getting a great motorhome if it inspects well. There are a lot miles left to enjoy. As always condition is based on the previous owners. Ask for maintenance records. Good luck in your search.
