I've passed all your comments/tips to our neighbors. THey plan on going back this weekend and to take a closer look. The trailer is a 1999 Nomad 2610.

I went on the Nada guide after we looked this trailer up on the dealers website. Funny thing is, we looked at this trailer last season (its still there!). I'm thinking probably for two reasons:

1. Nada suggests $6500 as top price and the dealer is asking $9490.00

2. So many people want a slide, that they probably just "pass" without really looking.

My neighbor was a little surprised when I showed her the Nada price and wants to know if, when talking price for this trailer, should they bring this up (what Nada price suggests)? When we looked at this trailer last year, they were asking the same price (and no, its not a consignment trailer).

YES!!!!!!!Offer them $6,500 and walk out the door if they don't come down. (Make sure they have their name and phone number.) They will surely call. Good luck Tiniree, have they checked the walls to make sure there are no soft spots? And checked the floor? HAve they asked to have the refrig & water heater on? And furnace? Double check everything

I agree with Allegro Happy, offer them $6500.00 and if the dealer does not want to play then have them leave. Print out a copy of the NADA guide for them to take in and let your friends know that the trailer has been sitting on the dealers lot for a year. This will give them plenty of leverage to use with the dealer. Make sure that they inspect the trailer very carefully. They might want to pay a professional RV inspector to go over the unit. They dont want to buy a pile of junk. Good luck to your friends.

When you price an RV in NADA, be very careful that you know what options to include in the base price and what options are considered an add-on. It varies with every model. 13.5K BTU AC might be standard on some models, so there would be no add to the NADA price. On others almost every single option is an add on to the NADA base model price. The NADA does not know how the unit was equipped, so the actual value can vary a lot!

On this model, things like a TV antenna, stereo, satellite dish, TV, leveling jacks, cabinet upgrades, outside showers, and some other things, would all be considered upgrades and add-ons to NADA price.

If you aren't sure how to figure the NADA price, go to your local library. They should have the actual book there. Most reference librarians are well versed with the NADA guides. The book will also tell you exactly what you should add and what is included. You can even make photo copies of those pages. If the dealer sees that you have the book numbers in hand, in my experience, they won't even argue the NADA price.
