PPL Motor Homes final price

For those of you that have purchased your MH through PPL, did you find the prices to be firm or was there wiggle room? What was your discount if any?

Thanks

Hmmm....based on what? PPL is a consignment site, I don't understand how one could assume 30 - 40% wiggle room. Maybe someone has real data with advertised price versus sale price. If so, I'd be real interested in seeing it.

Since PPL is a consignment lot, you can always offer a lower price that PPL can communicate to the owner (consigner). It's then up to him to accept it, reject it or make a counteroffer.

We have sold one RV through PPL. We set an initial price and also a lower acceptable price. It they got an offer for above the lower price, they sold it and sent us a check. If it was for under our lower price, they would have called to see if we would take it or counter the price. They did sell fro over the lower price limit, so we call a call saying it was sold and set to close on a certain date.

We looked at a 5er there early this year and was interested. The seller was upside down and was asking way more than the market would bear. It was still there several weeks later.

PPL will not let an overpriced unit set there for very long. After a period of time, they will be after the owner to drop the price or take the unit off the lot.

So, you decide what it is worth to you, and make an offer.

RUSTY & TXiceman nailed it. The owner sets his initial asking price and must agree to a minimum he will accept. After almost 3 months with no offers, they called me with an offer below my minimum price, which I decided to accept. If I had not agreed, they would have kept it on their lot for a little while longer, but they would have increased the pressure to lower my minimum. IMO, that's because they don't get paid until they sell it, and they don't want to become a bone yard for RVs with little prospect of selling because of owners with unreasonable expectations of value.

Exactly right.

Welcome to the forum.

Can you help us understand where your figures come from?

It is always up to the owner. IMHO though, when you go through the initial appraisal session with them PPL has a very good and up to date of realistic selling prices.
They should have a compiled list of year, brand, features etc. just based on their sales which are extensive I would think if their sals figures are true and I have no basis to doubt. They tell you to make offer not only price but on items that might need repair or upgraded and just happens they have a shop to fix it so it is a side money maker.

PPL actualy sold my one year old TT for what I paid for it from RV Direct. They were worth their commission. I would never have got that much in the town I live in.

Have you tried looking and comparing actual prices of RV's sold at PPL?
PPL home page- scroll down click on RV pricing-scroll down to compare with actual selling price.
