The time for negotiating is long past. We had a similar situation when trying to buy a new motorhome a few years ago. After the price was negotiated,but before the papers were signed the dealer changed his mind and wanted $300.00 more than the negotiated price.

We told him we've already negotiated a price and that he should stick with it. When he refused we said we'd "have to think about it". The next day I called another dealer and offered him $500.00 less than the price we originally negotiated with the previous dealer. He immediatly said yes so we went over and signed the papers.

The original dealer called back every day for 2 weeks trying to get us to agree to a higher price. I finally told him we weren't interested, and that we not only wouldn't pay an additional #300.00 but actually got a better price. How would a seller or buyer be able to trust the other party on any negotiated price if one wants to change the terms after they've both agreed on something.

vacumnbed,

Congrats on taking the first step in potentially owing your first coach. May I suggest you talk to the seller about the tires at least. He/she may be amenable in working with you. If not, you can decide if its best, based on your personal circumstances, to continue with the deal. Best of luck.

My question, Isn't $40K a pretty good price for a '96 Exec even if it has bad tires?

You are in a tough spot. Whether you are working with a dealership or individual, I would at least mention the fact you discovered the age of the tires. The owner probably knows they are old therefore may have been just trying to sell the unit without putting rubber on it. An honorable dealership should have told you the age of the tires beforehand. If you feel the coach is worth the asking price even with old tires then I'd close the deal and start shopping for tires somewhere besides that dealership and before your 1st trip! I'd also check out all other things that wear out! Good luck.

I have only been on the forum for a couple of months and learned the first day to check the tire dates. I can't remember ever backing out of a deal after it was made either.

You will buy tires at some point. Buy them now. Besides when I bought our 1995 Beaver there were several things I replaced. Belts, hoses, tires, filters, fluids. All the items I replaced were to make me feel better and help on future break down.

40K is way too much to pay for a old 96 pusher to begin with so yes u paid too much so at least get new tires
I should ask if its 35 ft or 40 ft is it a signature or a windsor?

for example there is a beautifull 40ft Dynasty in great shape\
and the ASK is only 39K

Its used, that is part of what you buying, because the prev owner dont want to replace those things.
Your just getting a new job, extra work on yourself & the old owners getting them something new.
But, all is not lost, who know because that new unit they are getting, could be worse than what they are getting rid of.

Check at Les Schwab. My buddy says he is buying 6 22.5 Bridgestones for about $2400 mounted, balanced etc in Sacramento. That is close to what I paid for the same tires in 2007.

I cannot give advice on your deal. That is a personal decision for you to make.
