Bastard hid the dry rot and spring trouble, we never did get it up to camping standards and we'd checked the puppy over. Parked behind other vehicles and he "couldn't" get the other stuff moved to let us test drive it, but we were "friends" so there was no need, we could trust him. Bastard I say. Partly our fault, but larry and I actually thought this guy was on the level.
The upside was after we donated it to charity we discovered all the carpenter ants in the neighborhood had moved into it and were taken away. Cheaper than an exterminator, so that worked out.
I too am bitter and suspicious about used Rvs. Hope you're buying from a reputable source and best of luck.
Acquire bikes too, Utah thrift stores have tons for $20 ~ $50.

There are no services for RV's out there- no electricity, no grey-water dumping, nothing. JOTS can be hired to empty your grey-water, but from what I've read in other threads they aren't neccesarily the most reliable for this as they are also trying to empty hundreds of porta-poopers.
Do you think that info is unreliable?
In my research I have found that there are services offered!!! They will come take away your "Bad" water and recharge your "Good" if you make arrangements at their office and pay a premium. This made us feel very good....if only they could recharge our fuel and propane!!

If YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE enough to rent an RV, you are no longer a little girlie, so take care of YOURSELF. Cos nothing will piss your neighbours off more than the sight and smell of YOUR excrement seeping onto the pristine desert floor.
