Default Looking at a 450LXI to purchase

I have wanted a Bluebird since I saw my first one. I am looking at a 2006 450LXI and am seriously considering it. I have been reading through the recall information and have looked the coach over- I believe it has had all of the recalls done but I haven't had the opportunity to talk to the original owner or see any of the paperwork yet. How would I know? Should I have it weighed as part of the inspection process? What issues were caused by the recall being performed? Is the build sheet available anywhere so I know what options were ordered when it was new? What kinds of issues should I be looking for? When I test drive it are there any problems from the Hadley system because of the recall?

I know a lot about Monaco products but don't know all that much about Bluebirds yet.

Please let me know! I don't want to make an expensive mistake!!!

All of the 450's have had all recalls done,unless some new recall has popped up this year,2018.
Buy a coach with history,a coach people know about.

Talk with the PO. After much thinking when we purchased ours have never looked back. Great driving coach and you will have a BIG learning curve and WOG has a lot of help. One thing to look at if when the generator was moved that the front structure was left in place and not modified.

Give me a call if I can help. 864-444-4879

I just looked at a youtube video of one in Denton TX. Is that the one you are talking about? It looks great in the pictures, I wonder what condition it is really in?

Do you know anything about this one? It was traded in to Indoor RV in Atlanta and purchased by the company that has it.

I have seen the outside, only. First- needs tires as these are originals. It has some paint issues around the seams. No bodily fluids on the ground.

If you want a coach to drive with the least amount of issues do as Randy suggest . If you want a deal and can deal with grief and unresolved issues then buy from the dealer . My guess is the PO did not want to deal with issues and just traded this coach in to get as far away as possible . I would offer him 50% of what one on BBB, maybe less . That's how much value I put into this site and it's owners .
