Possible New 37GT Owner

Ready to pull the trigger on a used Challenger 37GT with just over 3,000 miles. We have been through numerous MH units recently, new and used. When we first walked through this one we were impressed and when I did the test drive I was even more impressed! Just wanted to drop in and say hello....tons of questions to follow!

My first question would be why did the previous owner unload it with so few miles?
I would ask the dealer for all service records.

Depending upon where it was delivered in the country, it could have as few as 50 miles driven by the previous owner or it could be 2,500 miles.

Good luck!!

We've had ours for a little over a year. Only made a couple of big trips in it, but we love it. A great floor plan for us. One thing you should check is at the top of the right rear wheel well. There's an access hole for the lavatory they missed putting a cover on. We had rain or first trip and got quite a bit of water in the bathroom.
Good luck on your decision.

Make sure the driver and passenger side windows lock. When we picked up our new leftover 2015, they had to replace the latches by removing them from a 2016 unit.

Thanks, I will add that to my PDI list. We made the final deal on paper with delivery for next Tuesday. Can't wait to change over.

I am not sure where the original owner actually purchased it, probably someplace in the Midwest and within 300 miles of northern Indiana. The story they gave the dealership was they mainly just sat and camped and didn't really travel much. Traded in for TT.
