That 2001 40 footer at DeMartini .... RV Deals is more than likely a coach in very good shape. We purchased our Alpine there and all of their RV's were in top shape. I would not be afraid to buy a coach from DeMartini. But buy it right.

Only thing we wish we had in our 2000 is Hydro Hot too. I think my next add on, having done the tv, fireplace, kitchen garage ect. will be Hydro Hot. Since we are in Indiana, I'm sure we can find someone to install it.

In this economy I don't think book value means much except to compare one unit/model against another. The real value of anything is what the buyer is willing to pay. Cash is king, and you have it. If I were in your position, I would offer less than what you think the unit is worth, to you. The dealer can either accept your offer, reject your offer, or counter-offer. It's a negotiation, after all. You shouldn't be afraid to make an insultingly low offer. After all, most dealers insult us with ridiculously high asking prices because they know many potential buyers don't have much leverage or have the RV buying bug, big time.

Ok, I'll bite. I think we've gotten all we're going to get out of the discussion on NADA pricing.

Kitchen garage?

If your going to hi-jack my thread, do it right! PICTURES!!!

Below Low Retail? Easily.

Our local volume dealer regularly has decent coaches on the lot at Wholesale (78% of the NADA Avg Retail is a good estimate, if you don't have a dealer's copy of NADA).

Of three DPs bought within our circle of friends this year, all were in top condition. The higher mileage ones went for 10% under wholesale and a little under Low Retail. Another with steady use and moderate miles sold for Low Retail. One of the high mileage rigs was resold at a modest profit.



Some of these units are still being acquired very cheaply by dealers. The average offer I've gotten for mine in trade is 10-15% under book wholesale. And, I've heard of auctions where dealers bought as low as 60% of the wholesale price. Even in the former case, with a $100K coach, that means a buyer could conceivably offer $75K against an asking price of $105,000 and still be providing the dealer with $7K profit. In the rarer latter cases, an sales price of more than $43K would garner a profit
