I am in the same boat as you about buying used. I am on my 3rd used camper since the mid 90’s. The ’94 S&S I have now is the most expensive one I have ever bought ($2,800) and the 1st one with a bathroom…….why did I wait so long for a bathroom????;-)
Gotta do more work on the used ones, but I won’t take a big hit on selling it and don’t have to worry about insuring it. So far everything in it still works fine.
It would be nice to have a new one, but it isn’t in the cards for me right now.
