Information "New" 2007 Keystone Everest 294RL

I am looking to trade up to a lil bigger 5th wheel (bedroom and living room slide) and have spotted a 2007 Keystone Everest 294RL, which they say is brand new. Currently I have a 25' Tracker 5th wheel with one slide (dinette). Want to winter in TX in it.

From what I understand the Everest's have been discontinued, this is a 3-4 year old unit (depending on model year) and am wondering what a good price would be on this. They have MSRP as $52,995 and say blowout sale price is $31,000.

Also, does anyone own a unit like this and what problems/issues have you had with it? What do you like/dislike with your unit?

Many many many thanks for any/all suggestions/information!

PS I think I posted this in the wrong thread, am trying to move it!

The Everest is a good fifth wheel. The one thing to consider is the re-sale value of the trailer after you purchase it. You can go to www.nada.com and look up the current value on a "used" one and base your offer on that. Since it is new and should be warrantied by Keystone, it will be worth a little more than high retail, but not much more. Also, don't add for options unless it has a generator, satellite dish or something big like that. Most options are already included in the values.

Consider the resale. Once you drive it off the lot, you will have a used 2007 model trailer (4 model years old). I would look at NADA Guides and offer the average retail at the most and pay no more than high retail. As noted don't include the base options, just the really high dollar ones. If they want more, tell them to throw in the 7 year extended warranty coverage package.

Don't buy the extended warranty from the dealer or any special upholstery or paint sealant packages. These are BIG profit makers for the dealer (like 100% mark up). You can get extended warranty coverages cheaper going after market.

Have the same thought as well... specially since I have called them... asked what their super sale price is and in the ad it was $31,000, I was quoted over the phone $31,500.

That's NOT building my trust levels!!!!

We have a 2003 Everest. They were discontinued during the 2010 production year. The new Alpine models are being built on what was the Everest line. Like others have said, its a 2007 model. Id offer them a high retail book price for it.

Our unit has been very durable. We full timed in it for about 4 years and put somewhere between 50K - 60K road miles on it. We cannot say much about cold weather as ours has never been in the snow. However, it is fully insulated and that helps keep it cool.

We have scheduled about 4,000 miles for it this fall as we are going to NE then down to FL and back to SC. Its always ready to go.


p.s. Here are the specs for all 2007 models.
