Curious about coach values?

I have owned and lived full time in a Country Coach since 2010. During that time I've made a habit of keeping tabs on the value of similar Country Coaches. In the last few weeks I have seen the value of coaches listed rise from $71-100K. Now they are listing from $100-180k. The value of Foretravel has remained about the same for comparable coaches. Since 2010 Country Coach values have been steady declining in cost. Does anybody have any ideas why the asking prices have suddenly shot up?

People are finding out that used CC's are a good value and are built better than anything in the new market. That is why we are keeping our '02 which is a very simple coach and doesn't have all the foo foo of the newer off brand coaches.

Wish I could say that about ours!!

Been checking off the list but still need to fix the auto gen start and SmartWheel wiper control.

But if the prices are going up maybe I can re-coup my repair costs!!

Some of it may have to do with the original guy behind CC, Ron Lee, revived the company and is about to begin producing new coaches again. They have been making replacement parts and refurbishing coaches for the last few years too.

Listing price does not equal a sale price.

I wonder how many inquiries the 1994 Magna in Oregon has received at a list price of $98,000?

I admit to not having stayed too current on used coach prices, recently. But, I did notice our coach, and quality B+ to A+ quality coaches (Foretravel, Travel Supreme, Monaco Dynasty/Executive, Etc. and Etc. on their Holiday Rambler clones, Beaver, Newmar DP's, etc. - all seemed to have about a 5-10% appreciation (actually recuperation) in prices from the lows of 2008-2010. My specific model, was up by $15-20K over the low years, by the early 2012 timeframe.

I also feel as have been stated, that the reputation of CC's in general, is catching on to a who new breed of coach owners. And yes, they, and all manufactured coaches, will have problems of varying kinds - nature of the beasts. And lets fact it, some coaches are abused pretty bad, and then passed on to become a problem for someone else to resolve.

But quality lasts, and I think your seeing this reflected in ongoing demands for Country Coaches.

Best to all,
Smitty

Maybe it's due to the fuel prices staying low?

It's basic economics -- Supply and Demand. Demand has increased in the last few years.

One thing could be the fact no new country coaches are being built so nationwide inventory is just getting older and well kept rigs getting harder to find. Plays to the supply and demand theory.

Hopefully that'll be changing!

Lots of things can play into the value of a coach though. Just reading ads for similar units does not give the whole story. When you start thinking about the best 10 year old rig you've seen compared to the the worst one you've seen, it's pretty easy to see a $30k difference in value of the coaches. Some quick factors to consider are rust on winter driven or salt-air coaches, previous damage from water, how clean a coach was kept (does it stink), needed maintenance, preventative maintenance already done, tires, etc, etc.
