I always thought if you could buy at NADA, low retail with no options added in you were probably alright. Which puts that one around 8-9K
That said if you have been looking, you know the market better than any of us.
If it's what you want, you plan to keep it a long time, and it is well maintained and in excellent shape, I don't know, 14-15K ? Long run if you keep it for many years paying more for a really great one can work out
I am getting the impression the smaller class c's sell pretty quick, and go fairly high, as folks seem to really want the small ones. Is that true? If so price is going to be higher
Couple of things that vintage V-10, had spark plug issues, so you may want to r&r the plugs or at least retighten. They also put on the cheap squeeze hose clamps which did tend to break. Just a thought
I imagine we will keep it for only two years or so. That comes into consideration.
Something I forgot to ad..The depreciation of a new motorhome the minute you drive it off the lot is more than there asking for the one you posted assuming the new motorhome is around 100K and 20% off lot depreciation which is pretty close to what I see around here.
One reason I never buy new anymore even if I had the bucks!
I'm not sure how this relates to the value of this one.
Seems a little high. If you are in Flagstaff, AZ, there is some in your area, but not sure of your requirements for a rig. Mileage higher then some for less dollars.
I'm actually in Clearwater Florida. I've not updated my info in a while.
The owner has come down to 16,750. I still think that's too much, but it seems to be difficult to get concrete number for rv values.
This one seems to fill most of our needs. What would be a fair offer? It seems to be in good shape, everything runs well, and the generator and engine sound good.
There was a water leak from the previous owner installing a roof rack. But it has been recaulked. and has remained dry after the weeks of rain we've had here.
Asking and selling is 2 different things, I sold my pusher for 10,000 less than NADA and bought this class C for 6,000 less than NADA
I understand that difference. But it seems such a huge discrepancy and the owners think that nada is totally out of line with the value. I was wondering if nada is not a reliable source of value for rvs, where as I know it's the industry standard at motorcycle shops.
My wife and I have started looking at small class c's in the 20-24ft range. Twice we have found good looking rvs then looked up the price on nada and it's says the rv is worth 10-15k less than the owners are asking for it. When we look up comparable rv's in the same age and features they see to be of similar price.
I don't want to keep missing out on rvs because of price differences but I also don't want to pay too much for rv's, I'm just wondering if nada is not a good way to value rv's, I used it for many years in the motorcycle industry.
The asking price for this rv is 24k
Nada has it valued at 12k-14k
this one the asking price is 18k
when we looked it up on nada they valued it at 11k.
