coach looking

went to a dealer today to look at class a coach.I like the one I have,just that the one slide it has is not big enough.storage is good but not as much as nicer ones.I have a 1998 Winnebago Itasca with one 18inch slide.
was looking at a 2005 Winnebago Itasca with two slides.they were asking 64900 said they would give me 16000 for mine ha ha.when he came back with his great deal best he could do ha ha.he wanted 54900 out the door and my coach!!!!!! he can not count or he thinks he could make a lot of money on it

I recommend try finding a used RV from a private party. There are many out there due to the rebounding economy and those who gave up traveling due to their health or death of a loved one.

Well, the fact is your 1998 isn't worth much on the open market, especially since the typical trade-in offer is essentially low-wholesale. Since $16k-$20k is all he can hope to re-sell your coach for, the $16000 he talked about first had to assume a discount off the asking price on the 2005.

If you have a nice clean 1998, your best bet is to sell privately and then go negotiate a cash deal on the rig you want.

I have a 96 Itasca 32 ft with no slides on the ford chassis that I was told books out around 16500.00. I found it for 7600.00 and about crapped myself when the insurance agent told the book value for it.

Book value and what coaches are selling for are often way differing numbers. Less than wholesale book value is common to see coaches selling for.

IMO, you paid about what an 18 YO no slide gas coach is "worth" AND it sounds like the insurance agent is selling insurance.

I'm betting they won't pay you $16,500.00 if you totaled it tomorrow, unless you bought an "agreed value" policy. Normally, ACV (determined by them) is usually all ins will pay, regardless of what they tell you when you are buying their coverage.
