How low can they go? 2006 class A listed at $109k

We have settled on the rv we want.

It will be a Winnebago Tour with the 40fd floor plan.
I'm looking at 2006 models.
The lowest listed asking prices I am seeing is $109k

What could I expect to actually buy this for?

I'm in no big hurry. I have about 4months and I can travel pretty much anywhere in the country to purchase, but I have to be mindful of the cost of diesel to get it back home

From what I have seen (I am not sure of the letter designator is 40fd a 4 wheel slide) that is a good price. unless something wrong with it

You should also consider the Winne Vectra/Itasca Horizon 40fd 2005-08. Over the Tour it also has IFS, rear radiator and the 400 ISL Cummins with engine brake(all three highly desirable), and is not much more $$ than the Tour. Also the Vectra/Horizon 40ad 2005, the floorplan is almost identical except for 3 slides.

I will.

When I search in rvtrader etc I just put in WInnebago 40fd so I can grab all the vectras , tours and itascas.

If I did the Vectra I would go 2005. We really can't spend more than 100k. Even that is stretching it. I would be much happier at 85k.

We were looking at a National TropiCal but after comparing it to the Winnie 40fd floor plan we are sure this will be best for us.

Now I'm trying to get an idea that if the rvtrader ad is listed at 109k - What can I really expect to negotiate down to? 90k? 85?

First time I've ever heard of the rear radiator being more desirable.......but maybe I'm missing something.

My brother just spent $4,000 replacing his rear radiator that rotted out on his Winnebago Ultimate Advantage. A common occurrence with aluminum rear radiators. So be sure and give that a close look on your pre-purchase inspection list.

Be aware that the initial price isn't the end of your expenditures. I spent $10,000 getting my coach baselined and up to speed. And I had it inspected at an RV place and a truck place before purchasing. Given that additional expense, what I thought was an excellent buy wasn't quite so great! Be sure and leave some room for the unexpected repairs.

Noted.

We have been factoring that in.

But still back to the original question.

What kind of discount can I expect off the listed price on a used class A?

I don't think anyone can answer your question. The only factor is how much the seller is willing to come down. Nobody knows that but the seller.

offer $ 80 k and then wait for them to counter offer . If they say $ 100 k tell them that you will meet in the middle at $ 90 k if that is a good # for you

good luck

If that is the lowest price you have seen, good luck going too much lower. Obviously depends a LOT on seller's financial conditions too, like what is owed if anything.

I bought the best deal I could find but only talked the seller down $2K. That said, it was listed 15K under everyone else. I also found a few recent sales and comped based on actuals. VERY tough sometimes pricing private party used, as many sellers may ask what they owe, regardless of actual value!

Hope this helps.

Chris

Oh, and besides radiator mentioned above, assume it has original tires and budget for that. budget a lot! You can easily get date codes of tires and if they are original they HAVE to be replaced. Mine were $5500

That coach could probably sell for a $115K if it's clean. If it's a private party, I don't think you'll see the price budge much. If I was selling it and you offered $80K, I wouldn't even call you back. It's no longer a buyer's market when it comes to 2004 and up DP's. When the economy went south in 09, many companies went out of business and the rest quick making/selling as many DP's. Now there is a shortage of good used coaches that are a few years old.

Sorry, I should have said the Vectra/Horizon has IFS, side radiator and the 400 ISL Cummins with engine brake(all three highly desirable)

Just bought a '11 Bounder. Asking price at dealer was $125k Way too high, Got it for $103k and it was still $10k more than if I went 250 miles south for another at $92k asking. But I'm getting free service, and everything WILL be working when I'm done. If bought south I'm stuck fixing it myself or driving 500 miles both ways ($225 gas).

I agree you will need to negotiate with the owner to find bottom. A private owner my still have an open loan that would control his price. A dealer ??? I would think has some has some wiggle room, they need profit just a matter of how much! I believe most folks start a bit high knowing that most buyers will want to receive some sort of discount. If a "dealer" he needs some room built in for a possible trade in. Bottom line you never will know without negotiating with the seller.
That's my two cents !
