(The coach had been kept in inside storage). We already beat the dealer up pretty good on price so I don't know how much more he is willing to invest in this coach. NADA retail is around $140,000 or so and they committed to sell it to us for $115K. Replacing the radiator is probably around $6K to $7K alone I am thinking. Perhaps they made a lot on the trade though??
When I got my coach in January it had 17k miles on it and the first thing I did was to get a new set of tires. Went through FMCA and save around $1500 and my tires looked good but they had 8 years on them. From everything that I have read you need to dismount the tires and check the inside, to me that is a waist of time and $$$$ to get one or two more years and hope they hold together.
The cost of the radiator should be around $5400 (parts and install) Mine was installed by Quinn Cat in CA. Radiator was shipped to them from Sweet Home, Oregon.
