Because they wear out fast, and you have to replace every single item on them.
So, in the end, you have what, a new one.
Get the whole package new from the start, and even then it will have problems with it and you will begin fixing it from the start.
Now of course I have no personal knowledge of these facts (well, maybe a little?), but it's like a boat. Not as much of a maintenance nightmare, but close.
A new one is your own personal headache. Getting a used one is picking up someone else's headache.

Not to be a naysayer, but there are a lot of folks who would disagree with you here.

The quality of many newer motorhomes is notoriously bad, and the warranties are worth less than the paper they are written on.

Many, many folks will tell you that for most Class A or Class C motorhomes of modest costs (this doesn't apply necessarily if you want to buy a $1.7million Newell or Prevost conversion) a litely used coach that someone has worked the bugs out of is the way to go.

Just my $.02 worth.
