Before buying 2016 Thor Gemini 23TR

Hello. Sorry if posting in wrong place, I'm elderly and not use to using forums. My wife and I are looking at a local dealer's 2016 Thor Motor Coach (Class C) Gemini 23TR. It has a 3 liter, 5 cyl Power Stroke Turbo Diesel engine. Never owned an RV before. Is there a check list for this camper we should go through before buying it? Thanks for any help.

You are in the right place.

Google "RV pre-delivery inspection" and you'll find a wealth of checklists.

There is a pretty good one in Ed's crowd sourced Axis/Vegas owner's manual (it is Axis/Vegas specific in many places but a lot of it works for all Thor motorhomes):

Jamie's got you pointed in the right direction...
So I'll just say, "Welcome to the Forum!"

You may want to spend some time in http://www.thorforums.com/forums/f17...pass-9558.html
It is long but dedicated to repairs, modes and preformance of Thor Gemini and Compass models.

Welcome! Before the ink is dry on your purchase contract, the dealer is likely to offer you a "bargain" on an extended warranty. You can find extensive and disparate comments from earlier forum posts by using the "search" tab here.

Beware the RV salespeople. Some of them are super slick! Make the dealer fix everything before you write the final check!
