2004 Islander


Since I do not speak, read or write French, I will guess at what you are asking. Hope you read English.

I think you are asking if $99K is a decent price for a 2004 National RV Islander. If that is your question and you are talking American dollars, then NO. I would offer about $80K and possibly settle at $85K

National RV made very good coaches, and the Islander was at the top of their line.

Happy Trails!

The Toyo tires were original equipment so they are probably 10 years old. Replacement tires will cost about $700 each and you need 6.

A price should be about $75,000 to 80,000

I do like National RVs and do think they are good quality but I think the price is pretty high. However that depends if you are buying in Canada or US. Because of the french and the mileage in kms, I'm guessing that you are in Canada and there, that's probably not a bad price (That said, if it was me, I'd just buy one a mh in the US and import it into Canada).

In the US, low NADA on it is $82k and National RVs have been out of business for several years and their resale value is pretty terrible so I think you could possibly get it for $60-80k or less (I almost bought an 01 Islander about a year and a half ago for around 32k). Also important to note if you are like me living in Canada but buying in the US is that, unless it's changed, you CANNOT import a motorhome on a Dynomax chassis to Canada (To import into Canada you need a recall clearance letter from the chassis manufacturer and the 'new' Country Coach does not issue them (at least they didn't when I asked last year) for the 'old' Country Coach) also technically, the RIVs website (Registrar of Imported Vehicles) says that for vehicles with multiple builders, you need a recall letter from each which you cannot get from National RV since they are out of business although in my experience, RIV only requests that you have the letter from the chassis builder).

-- (french) --

J'aime les National RVs et je trouve qu'ils fabriquaient dans bons VRs mais je trouve que le prix est haut. Ceci etant dit, ca depend si tu es au Canada ou au Etats-Unis. Puisque que ton message est en francais et que tu listes l'odometre en kms, je crois que tu est peut-etre au Canada et si oui, le prix la, n'est probablement pas trop pire. (Malgre que personellement, j'en acheterais un au Etats et je l'importerais au Canada).

Au E-U, le prix NADA bas est $82k et National RVs a ferme ses portes depuis plusieurs annees et leur valeur de revente est tres pauvres donc je pense que la valeur de revente est environ $60-80k ou moin (J'ai presqu'achete un Islander 2001, il y a 18 mois pour environ $32k). Il est aussi important de savoir que si tu habites au Canada et achete au E-U, a moin que ca aille change, tu ne peux PAS importer un VR bati sur un chassis Dynomax au Canada (Pour importer au Canada, tu doit avoir une lettre du manufacturier du chassis disant qu'il n'y a pas de rappelle sur le vehicle et le 'nouveau' Country Coach ne fournit pas les lettres pour le 'vieux' Country Coach. De plus, techniquement, d'apres le site du RVI (Registrar of Imported Vehicles), pour des vehicles avec plus qu'un manufacturier, tu dois fournir une lettre de chaque manufacturier qui est impossible puisque National RV n'est plus en operation malgre que de mes experience, RVI exige seulement la lettre du fabricant du chassis).
