Welcome to iRV2!

I don't have an answer, but don't jump without taking a good look. There are a lot of floor plans out there. Get the best for your needs. That is the important thing.

Are you looking at only new units?

As you are looking make sure you do your homework. It is easy to be swayed by RV bling and make a huge mistake. Find out what's under the unit with things like transmissions, engines and chassis. Floor plans alone are not the only important factors in RV purchases.

Have you tried using some of the sights like RV Trader, or iRV2's classified section?

That can give you some great options, both for choice, price, and virtual tours without leaving home.

Finding an RV show to go to is also a good way to look at a lot of units at once.

Regardless of age and experience one can easily be swayed when looking at RV's. This is a terrible thing to say, but take everything a Rv sales person says as hearsay, check everything out. There are lots of good used units out there, ones purchased and seldom used so low mileage and new like condition, take your time. Floor plan is very important, you'll regret a good deal on one if you are constantly wishing it had this or that feature.

Finding the actual value of a used unit can be found using Kelly Blue Book along with PPL motor home sales. PPL sell MH but also list, got to search there site, the sold price for units sold in past 2 years. This will give you a good starting point.

Once you determine the actual value of a unit don't be afraid to make a drastically low (in comparison to asking price) offer. Of course if your buying from a dealer you'll have to figure their cost of a PDI and anything they repair before you pick it up, but start low!

Good luck, have fun during this stage of the hunt, visit camp areas and talk to campers and what they like or dislike about their units. Most love to talk about their RV.
