I just bought one and traveled 10 hours to get it but paid 35% less than what I would have paid for the same thing here. like I said different area's have different market values. condition is another major determining factor, but as you will soon find one man's "like new" condition is another man's pile of crap. just like the phrase "everything works" it always does until you get there and actually start checking it out
Couldn't have said it better. It is a buyers market out there right now. I had a choice of 8 very nice coaches worth considering when we bought ours. Some people have had their coaches for sale for years and can't understand why! In one word MONEY. They priced themselves out of the market.
