How much do RoadTreks cost!?!

My wife and I are retired and looking to get a Class B just for the two of us. I am trying to get over the shock of asking prices of $100k+ for a Roadtrek 190 Popular and $120k+ for an RS Adventurous on the MB 3500 chassis. These are of course way below sticker, since they say they are "sale" prices. Is that what people are actually paying for Roadtrek Class B's? I don't mind paying a fair price, but I certainly don't want to pay more than I should. Any thoughts from someone who has bought a new or recent year used Roadtrek in the past couple of years would be really helpful. Thank you in advance.

They and other similar rigs aren't cheap. I'd suggest buying an older rig. Buying new is very expensive, these rigs depreciate like a rock. Most say floor plan is most important. Good luck 😜

Based on my experience shopping for and buying a new Winnebago ERA, take the sticker price and multiply by 0.75 to get a starting price for negotiating. Mine stickered at $128 and got it for $95.

We are looking at Class B and B+ because our use would be mostly travel and not camping so much. Prices are high on all of them especially Airstream. I will say the Airstream quality is obvious compared to the others. You can get a much larger unit for about the same price but a lot of people today do not have the need for such a large unit.
When you consider what a luxury car like a Mercedes, Audi, BMW upper end would cost and consider what you get the price of the nice Class B does not seem quite so bad.
Today I looked at the Airstream - Winnebago ERA 170 & the Winnebago View. Ruled out a few that ride on a Dodge frame with a gas V6 and the Ford. There are a few other brands that I want to look at like Leisure Travel - Road Treck & Coach House.

We also looked at RoadTreks RS Adventurous but they were priced considerably higher than the Winnebago Era. The salesman pushed the longer/better Roadtrek warranty, but not worth the extra premium IMHO..

These are quotes I got from a dealer in Seguin, TX (Not the dealer I bought from)

I think that a goes rule of thumb for any RV not just Winnebago.

Mine was MSRP $124,400 and got mine for $86,500. It pays to shop around.

Watched some video tours of Coach House RVs, looked very nice...until I got a price quote A wee bit out of our budget.

Dan Hardy at La Mesa RV in Port St Lucie FL was very helpful, I spoke with him several times, although I ultimately missed out on getting the RV I was interested in from him. http://www.lamesarv.com/Class-B-motorhomes-for-sale

Which is exactly what multiplying by 0.75 will get you. 25% off.

Short answer is too much!

Check out Pleasure Way and Leisure Travel.

We bought a 1-2 yr old PW Lexor and love it. It is gas so $30,000+ less to start with.

I have a 2007 Roadtrek 190 that we have been very happy with. Looking to trade up to an ERA or Roadtrek. We are looking for the 4 wheel drive option on either the ERA or RT. The main reason for the trade/move up.
I guess it will have a lot to do with the floorplan the wife likes. We are going to the Pomona RV show this coming week to find which one will work.

Will be interesting to see what they will give us for our 2007 RT on a trade in. We bought it new and has been a great vehicle for travel.

It seem that the ERA has a better pricing on their units. They both use the same chassis. Will be interesting to see what the RT has over the ERA.

Steve

Looking at NADA values, I would think they will give you about $32,500 on trade in. Search NADA.com. Remember, wholesale will be about 15 to 20% below low retail.

Cheers!

Alpha99,
Thanks for the input. I was hoping to get 40K but I guess we will have to see how the rest of the deal goes.

Will be heading to the Pomona show on Wednesday to compare B Class units to see what works best for us.

Steve

I was also thinking about a Leisure Travel Van till I found out the CCC is terrible. Also Pleasure Way was pretty bad too. Im not sure about all the Models. But the last I checked a PW Plateau its CCC was around 1330. Im 240 and With Full Water for boondocking it only leaves around 700lbs. Add another person and now your looking at about 500 lbs for everything you want to take with you. Not very good.
