If price is a concern, I wouldn't bother with shopping for new models when you can save so much on a well maintained, used model. Lots of used Pups to be had, but you may have to do a lot of digging to find what you're after. If you can wait awhile, it might be easier to find a good deal in the off season. In my case, the camper was reposessed and looked like it hadn't been used much. After a little work, it's actually better than new, for thousands less. Lots of others here have had similar experiences. I think the key is to avoid the "bargains" that result from the past owner's mistakes. Look at some of the horrors in the remodeling threads for a sample of how bad things can get. IMO, it's better to spend more up front for something in good repair than suffering the regret of a fixer upper.
