Price for RV

Hello All

I am new to the RV world. We are looking at purchasing a Winnebago RV Journey. It is a 2005 and is a Diesel Pusher. It has 30,000 miles on it. Two owners before me (if I buy it). Where can I go to find out the worth of this. I have the VIN # but when I did a search on that it told me nothing. They are asking $89,900 and will not come down. Firm on price.

Look at the NADA web site. You can also look at rvs.com, rvt.com, PPL motorhomes to see if they have something comparable to get an idea of what they are selling for. You can also do an internet search on the year make and model to find dealers that may have one. You can also look at eBay or Craigslist.

Do you have any more info. There were four different size Journey's made in 2005. Nada value could be anywhere from $50,000 to $90,000 depending on model.

Price can vary greatly depending on condition, extras, new tires, etc. Price sounds high, it would have to be showroom condition for me to bite. JMHO

Oodle has 4 pages of 2005 Journey for sale. These are asking prices, not selling prices.

I paid more for my Itasca than I wanted to but I
couldn't find a private party that wanted to part with theirs.

Wasn't cheap but I did get a good one.

Just my opinion.

I agree with Frederick and purchase this one. It has all the features we want and the dealer gave me a good price on my Truck with 11.5ft camper so I am happy.

I think CarFax will send you some info if you give them the VIN.

Click on the link and you will be on Oodle. It can be used to search many different web sources for an item for sale.

In this case I had it search for a 2005 Winnebago Journey.

I am from the Mid West, a long time ago. Oodle is there but was not when I was.

oodle is a web site that searches the web for adds and then consolidates them in one place. It's a handy tool. You might also consider going to rv.org and buying thier product it will be the best money you spend on your rv is you read all the material.
