Got a friend who is thinking of purchasing a 33-foot Montana 5th wheel with three slides for $30,800 from a private individual. She asked my opinion, but I'm a motorhomer and know nothing about fivers. I don't know the specifics except its length. Does that price sound reasonable? Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

My knee-jerk reaction is that the price is high for that particular 4-year old, 33 foot 5th wheel. In 2004 we wholesaled our 2000 Jayco Designer XL 3610RLTS (36' triple slide) 5th wheel when we bought our current 5ver. The realistic retail (not the asking price, but the final agreed-upon sale price) on this 5th wheel (in excellent condition) would have been in the mid 20's.

You might be able to get better info if you know the specifics in the RV section of NADA.com.

Rusty,

What did you replace your Jayco with? Also, how did the Jayco hold up? I am researching fivers for fulltiming.

Thanks,

TJ

We replaced the Jayco with a 2004 DoubleTree Mobile Suites 36RE3 which we really like.

The Jayco held up really well, but I'm a stickler for maintenance and the Jayco was always in covered storage when not in use. Jayco has a reputation for going the extra mile to support their products and customers, and they always did with us (we've owned 3 Jaycos). In fact, some fellow Texas Boomers wound up buying the Jayco to use for full-timing.

I would get a very detailed list of options and a very good look at the condition of every part of the rig From bumper to hitch and roof to tires, then I would follow RustyJC's advice of looking it up on NADA.com. With enough options and good maintence it may not be a bad deal.
