Thanks guys. Guess I won't bother with carfax stuff, especially for that price when they tend not to have much info.
As for the gears, Smitty, thank you for the info! Did not know that. I'm thinking something more geared for city might be what I need since when I full-time I rarely drive for more than an hour on highways and seem to spend most my time parked in national-state campgrounds or at parks in a city. Most people look for tourist attractions--I search for playgrounds and parks for the kids.
