Toy hauler

E have been thinking of trading in the Wildcat in on a toy hauler, make it easier to load kayaks, bicycles and maybe a motorcycle( hopefully soon). But how do you figure out what is a fair price on one new or used? I have looked at nada and also some of the internet RV sale sites but it's still hard to figure what a fair price should be. We are tossed up between a Voltage and XLR Amp.

First decide upon what kind of Toy Hauler. You have the choice of trailer, 5th Wheel, Class A and Class C. They also come in aluminum or fiberglass sides and roof.
In trailers, you need to look at construction materials. Wood frame work or aluminum. Wood frame is cheaper and subject to drywrot.
Price also varies on upkeep, maintenance, usage, wear and tear of prior owner.

I understand the basics of it but when looking at new units most around here advertise what they call MSRP, which I am not sure where that number cons from Because different dealers have different prices for the same options and some have some options in packages and some charge for everything. Then when you find a used one just a year or two old where do you start with a price there.

MSRP is set by the RV manufacturer. Just helps the dealer. Dealer can set almost any price.
And when you say the "exact" trailer have different MSRPs, most people think that, but usually they are not "exactly" the same.

I bought a new toyhauler last year. I bought mine from The Original RV Wholesalers - RV Sales, RV Parts, RV Dealer, RV Super Store Dealer, 5th Wheel, Forest River and had it delivered to my home. I have been pleased with my trailer and the transaction. I have had 2 warranty issues and both have been fairly handled. I believe I saved ~10,000 by buying a wholesaler. The driver that delivered my RV spent an hour with me on a walk-through/setup. I have had to figure out most systems by reading the manuals. I would buy this way again.

I looked at used units too. The older ones were half the cost of a new ones, but they looked like maintenance nightmares. The newer used RVs cost as much the new one I bought - mostly because people were upside down on their loans.

I found some fair prices for new homes at nearby dealers. You have to shop and bargain and many of the dealers - just like buying a car. MSRP is just a starting point.
