Hi! We have finally decided to upgrade from a tent to pop up. After seeing many different pop ups, we decided we like Fleetwood and Jayco the best. The dealership closest to us has a New 2004 Fleetwood Cheyenne. They are asking $9,995 for it. We have no clue what a fair price is for this camper. Can anyone shed any light or give an input on a fair price?
Thanks

Hello,
I would say that $9.995 for a new 04' Cheyenne is way too much. Before we bought our 05' Aerolite Cub Hybrid trailer last March we had a 99' Coleman Cheyenne. We bought ours new in 99' for $6400 out the door including tax. I remember seeing a 05' Cheyenne (closeout) for 7500 a few months ago where we bought out Aerolite. Even if that was a 06' trailer with all the bells and whistles that's a lot of $$$$. Are you sure that wasn't a MSRP or their regular retail price. Ours had a awning, furnace, battery pak but no A/C.
When we bought our Coleman, the 3 dealers here in Cleveland Ohio were all asking about 7800- 8200 out the door for a 99' Cheyenne. So I knew which options I wanted and called a few other dealers within a 2 hour drive. The first one about 90 miles away gave me that 6400 price. I went out the next day and put down a deposit. If you know what model you want I would call around for a better price.
We camped about 225 nights over 6 years in our Coleman. It held up very nicely. We were going to buy another Coleman pop-up like the larger Mesa model. After viewing the new pop-ups I just happened to pop my head into a Aerolite Cub trailer. I liked the craftsmanship of the woodwork and the hitch weight was very light. We ended up getting one of the larger Cub's (24'). We camped 57 nights last summer in it.
I don't think you will go wrong in a Coleman pop-up. But you might just want to think about a hybrid trailer down there in Texas with all the heat. Photo page

A 2004 model is currently 2 years old, but in the next month or so -- when the 2007's come out -- it will be 3 years old. That's a REAL long time to be sitting on someone's lot. That alone would make me suspicious.

I also don't understand that price. NADA Guides doesn't list a 2004 for the Cheyenne, but average retail for a used 2003 base model is $5290. If the thing was loaded, and had every conceivable option, I personally wouldn't give them more then $7000 for it.

I believe in the 04' and 05' model years they changed the name to most of their trailers. The Cheyenne became the Resolute. We sold our 99' Cheyenne one year ago for $4250. So from buying it at $6400 and using it about 225 nights over 6 years, I was very happy with the way it held up. I did keep it cleaned and waxed. And always had bath towels on the seats, and carpet runners on the floor. The floor looked brand new when we sold it.
