Too good to be true?

So I am looking at a 2015 (New, still at dealer), Precept 35UP. The price tag is $85,000. Is it because its two years old? or should I be Leary? It is over three hours away, and I am waiting for detailed pictures of it and video. we were initially going to buy a 2017 Jayco 26X for $79,000...Is the 9 feet worth the $6,000? Or should we wait and pick up the 26X as originally planned?

It still has the 2 year warranty, and it comes with a lifetime warranty on all major appliances, etc. Please help! LOL

I'm in a simular situation. I'm looking to buy a 2016 seismic wave 400w. It's new, but been to a few shows. If anyone has comments or concerns I'd love to hear them.

Kodiak. I'd look to pay a lot less for a 15 model. Maybe in the high 50s.

$85,000.00 may be about right for a "new" 2015 Precept 35UP.
If you're sure that Jayco quality will satisfy you... offer them less and see what happens.

BTW here's a used one, (with only 6,858 miles), for $74,900.00.

I was confused. I thought it was a 5th wheel. 85k sounds good.

I'd look at the math...

MSRP for a 2017 mid-optioned Precept 35UP is about = $147,000.
Gas Class A retail buyers "should" be looking to start negotiations for a new/new (current model year) at about 25% off = $110,000
And a very good deal for new/new is about 35% = $95,550.

So, I would think a close-out, 2 (model) year old unit could easily be about $85,000...assuming all the show/dealership traffic has had a low impact on the RV. More discount should come for a unit with high wear and tear.

Best luck

First up I wouldn't purchase any Jayco motorized product. It depends on the build date. If it was built Jan 2015 it is one thing if it was built December 2015 that is different. A lot can go wrong sitting on a dealer lot. At a minimum plan on new batteries, oil change for the engine and generator. Carefully check for water leaks. You can negotiate these items.

Thank you all for your replies. I just got the "quote" and the out the door price is up to $89K. Wife and I are going to discuss it this weekend and possibly offer $79K out the door. I will also ask for the build date, etc. Will let everyone know. One thing we don't like, is there is no drop down bunk :(

Did you have a link to add? And we aren't in a major rush, so we have time to wait...

My mistake... Sorry

However here's a 2015 Precept 35UP with 10,500 miles, for $79,995.00:

We were looking at a new '15 Precept 35UN a couple weeks ago. The price was good, $86k, and the features were good. In the end, it came down to me being nervous about buying another holdover unit that has sat with the slides out, tires not moving, etc. We ended up buying a new Winnebago with less features instead.

We bought a 2016 35s holdover. No major disappointments yet. Play the money game and see what happens then give it a real good going over before money changes hands.
