Looking for some feedback on what is reasonable to expect for a trade value for my 2013 Sightseer 35G.
I know I'm getting killed by buying new and moving on after a scant one year of ownership. Just don't want to compound my mistake.
On the glass half full side, my wife, furkids, and I have found that we really love RVing. We are looking to move up to a 2014 Ellipse or Tour QD for a variety of reasons. Not the least of which is a new Bernese Mountain Dog pup which will be added to our pack next month.
But back on topic. I've tried to price our Sightseer on NADA, but it doesn't have all of our options listed.
Our Sightseer has about 3,500 miles is equipped with the following factory options.
- Passenger seat w/foot rest
- Stackable washer/dryer
- Electric fireplace
- Vinyl flooring
- 4-door refrigerator/freezer w/ice maker
- King powered bed w/ideal rest
- Entertainment center (exterior 32" LCD)
- Lower front protective mask
- 2 high efficiency air conditioners w/heat pumps
Winegard In-motion dish satellite
Auto Gen start (wireless)
The best approximation I can get from NADA is:
Low Retail (Average Retail)
Base Price $99,840 ($120,290)
Mileage: 3,500 (+1%) $998 ($1,203)
Stackable Washer/Dryer $1,675 ($2,020)
Refrig. 4dr w/Ice Maker (Luxury only) $1,330 ($1,600)
32" Exterior LCD TV $3,025 ($3,645)
Satellite System - In Motion $2,115 ($2,550)
Fireplace $425 ($510)
TOTAL PRICE: $109,408 ($131,818)
The local CW dealer we are trying to work with says wholesale is $92,000.
I know I'm getting clobbered by trading, but does $92K seem "reasonable"?
Obviously it's a numbers game between what they will say they are giving for the trade and the coach price. He is at about 77% of retail on the coach which since he is making money on the trade too, I feel he can come down more on.
I know that I should try to sell it myself, but am a little intimidated at the prospect and am somewhat nervous about interest rates rising. A 1 point increase would more than wipe out any the differential between trade and selling myself.
