Class A Pricing help

I need some help in pricing a 98 Georgie Boy Cruise Master 32' w/small slide and 44K miles. It's in good condition, with a 460 Ford in it. I will have my mechanic go through everything and I have experience with RV systems and what to look for. The low Nada is $9000 and avg is $11,200 and they are asking $17,400 at a consignment lot. I was looking to offer between $13 and $14K and I'm not sure if thats to high to start. Just need some advise on what to offer.

Really, the only good deal is the deal that you feel good about. I paid what I thought was a good price on my 2010 Fleetwood Bounder 33U. Some would say I did, some would say I paid too much for the motor home.

I would start lower. You can always raise your offer. However, once made, you can never reduce it.

I bought my '99 on consignment 2 years ago. They were asking $25k, we offered $20k cash (no check). That way no paper and it sold the consignmemt folks. Of course the seller had to agree.

They are asking 6k over average. Now the coach may be in excellent shape, only you know that. But I think I would start at 12. If you can pick anything apart, do so.

Definately check DOT date codes on tires. If they are 5-6 years old, you will need to replace soon at about $3000.

Only you know your budget and what you are willing to pay for the coach. You can ways go up, but not down.

At that age, condition is everything and the online NADA book value doesn't mean much (it is based on average depreciation, not actual market data). A functioning Class A in decent condition ought to bring $12-$19k, so your offer doesn't seem out of line to me.

Go to oodle.com plug in what you're looking for and see what comes up. Even if the coaches have been sold you could try contacting the sell to see what it actually sold for.
Also if you check the right box it will keep sending daily updates (if there are any)
