THOR #14198
Looking at buying a 2016 outlaw 38RF

Anything I should know about part failures, normal wear and tear or just factory problems. Coach is a 2016 with 7500 mile.

We had the 2016 outlaw 38re which is very similar. Had many problems with quality. The large slide had multiple problems. Thor finally replaced the slide motors. Was told by dealer that the original motors were not strong enough. The handling while driving was horrible. In my opinion it was overweight and under powered off the assembly line. We traded ours after only 6 months...the best thing we ever did

Welcome to the Forum!
Since the RV in question has a couple years, and 7500 miles under it's belt: it most likely has already had any issues taken care of.
We've had some PDI checklists floating around in here recently. Print one, and use it to guide you through a very thorough inspection.
Good luck!

I would suggest what Bob said in post #3.
Meanwhile, welcome to the forums.
