Help!! 2007 MONACO CAYMAN PURCHASE QUESTION

I have a close friend who want's to sell his 37' Cayman, but needs repainted and the floor needs redone. We are at $56k but I think that is still to high considering what needs to be done. It has 65,000 miles and 4 slide outs. What do you guys think. And yes the trailering arms have been upgraded, but shocks needs replaced.

Why would a 2007 MH need to be repainted,and the floor redone, sounds like it was not taken care of.

There's a 2006 37' Cayman nearby (central FL) with 44,000 miles. No idea what options or condition. There's a sign asking $39,800. (I have no experience with this size/style RV)

Sounds like it needs a lot of obvious work, and you have not considered the not-obvious issues yet! I'd keep looking were this me.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

I would check the price on NADA and also do a search on RVTrader.com for that same model to see what they are going for. Once you determine that, then subtract what it cost to do the repairs you mentioned.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

I have considered, but Iím new and donít want to dig a hole. I figured common sense says if you donít take care of the cosmetics then you probably donít take care of the mechanics. Not always true, but I think this is the case. I figured about $20k for a complete repaint and new floor. For that I should just bump my spending from $60k to $80k for a true turn key.

There are several obvious problems with this unit:
1. There are way too many OBVIOUS problems!!!! That typically means that there are many more yet undiscovered problems.
2. NEVER BUY A VEHICLE FROM A FRIEND!!!!!!! These types of purchases rarely work out to anyone's favor. Not work losing a "friend" over a transaction.

I would keep looking. Price is on the high side and you have some expensive repairs ahead not even counting the ones you don't know about.

X-2 Keep looking for a "Very Well Loved" coach, that fits you and your wife's needs! You will know it when you see it! When the owner takes pride in his baby, you can see it! And don't dismiss traveling to find "the one". Make it adventure! Good luck, don't get in a hurry, and have fun! Rail!
