Should I Purchase a Used Holiday Rambler Endeavor?

by Julie Moore
(Rock Hill, SC, USA)

I am in the process of possibly purchasing a 1998 Holiday Rambler Endeavor & need to know the availability of parts for this unit. The unit we are looking at currently has the "check engine" light is on & the awning that is located over the super-slide, the spring has sprung & want to know if parts are available to fix these items.

ANSWER: Greetings Julie thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

Let me start off by addressing the Check Engine Light being on. Usually a Check Engine light being on means that you may have some problems with smog related components on the engine.

Depending on the actual engine component that is malfunctioning; it can cause the engine to run badly or inefficiently or possibly cause damage to the engine if it is not fixed in a timely manner. Again, depending on the problem with engine the repairs could be very costly.

As far as parts availability is concerned; most RV parts are generic in nature and readily available. The exception to this would be exterior body parts such as storage doors, graphics, decals, etc. But with a little bit of searching even these replacement parts can be found.

1998 Holiday Rambler Endeavor
by: Anonymous

I currently own a 1998 35' Holiday Rambler Endeavor diesel pusher and am more than satisfied with it. I have owned it for a little over 3 years and am the second owner. My wife and I live in the unit. It has one slide, which I would like another, but this unit, as I said, does not have it. I have had quite a bit of work done on the unit and have not had any problems finding what I needed to repair what needed repaired. Most of the work I have had done was on the engine, but I have repaired a few items myself, again finding no problem finding parts.
As for your awning needing re-coiled, it should not be that expensive as long as you shop around to find a fair labor facility if you don't plan to repair it yourself.
Should you have any questions on your unit, please feel free to contact me with questions and I will give you any info I have available.
