Buying a Cherokee Sport: Good Deal??

I want to get into the Jeep thing. I have heard nothing but good things about them, and I want a piece of the pie. I am considering buying an '01 Cherokee Sport. The price is $7500 w/ 90K miles. The body/interior are perfect except for a few dings on the front and rear bumpers. According to the dealership, it is a one owner old man who towed it behind his camper to FL every winter. My questions are: Is it a good deal? Does towing behind a motor home have any detrimental effects on the frame or Jeep? Should I buy it? Thankyou for any help offered; I hope to become an active member of the Jeep community. -Mike

I don't know if towing it for long hauls will have any detrimental effect on the Jeep - as long as the transfer case was in neutral it shouldn't matter. Price and mileage wise I'd say go for it.

I'm assuming the stealership did some sort of inspection and can document that it passed and all the fluids, belts, axles etc. are in good shape.

My last Jeep was an XJ sport (still regretting having to trade it in) and this one looks like a good deal. As always, try to talk the stealer down on the price(but I think they expect that anyways).
