What a shame the MH is not what you want. I agree the k's are a bit high. I have the identical model, just gone over 200k ks. Have had it for more than 6 years and still love it. Have done lots to it though ... solar panels, new loo, cooker, upholstery, double bed mattress, curtains, house batteries, etc. We spend several months in it each year.
A friend recently bought another identical one for NZ$42500. That one has done 245k ks and he's very happy with it.
Plus points; drives a dream, rear wheel drive, cam chain, double rear wheels, good hot water system. Wouldn't swap for anything else I've seen.
I would also strongly suggest that you join the NZMCA before you buy anything. You may find a good van through the membership and insurance is loads cheaper, and has better cover, than anything else I've found. Happy travels.
