1984 Itasca Sundancer 24RC
I went to look at this Class C yesterday. Joe, the gentleman who is selling it just traded it for another vehicle. He has no knowledge with regard to it's history. It does come with all it's manuals and receipts for all kinds of maintenance and work, prior to 2000. So it looks like it's had only two owners, before Joe.
It's got a 350 Chevy engine with 77,000 miles. It's 23 feet, sleeps 5 and has a bed and bath in the rear. The vehicle also has an OnanRV 4.0 generator, installed. The engine is clean and the fluids look good. It seems like the vehicle was cared for, meticulously.
It needs 6 new tires, an AC roof cover and ceiling vent cover, and at least one battery. Although everything seemed to work on shore power the Itasca was just about out of gas and out of propane so that still needs to be checked. The water wasn't hooked up to see how the plumbing worked.
I looked online for comparable vehicles and at NADA and I think the Itasca is over-priced. Plus, I want to look at one in Nevada, that's a few years newer, has 15,000 less miles and the same or less in price.
For those of you also looking, Quartzsite and Yuma are supposed to have some serious deals. I did see some interesting vehicles on Craigslist.
1993 LAZY DAZE 26 FT Class C for $12,000.00, in Yuma.
hmmm...there was a RoadTrek, too...must have sold it.
