Determining value of travel trailer?

I hope some of you more experienced folks can help out here. My in-laws have a heavily optioned 2008 Outback (by Keystone) M-18RS TT (18' towed length, rear slide). It has been used twice and is as close to brand new as humanly possible. They've decided to sell it, and were thinking of asking $10k for it. I think that may be too low.

It listed somewhere in the mid to high 20's new, and when I checked NADA the value came back as Low Retail $18,540 and Average retail $22,380. I know the market is down and the economy is weak, but I'd like them to take as little a beating as possible.

Can anyone here give me some kind of guidance as to what they should ask for it? All opinions are welcome, as I am utterly clueless. Thanks in advance.

I'd try at least 18K for while. Can always drop price later.

It took about two months for us to sell our 2009 26RKS TT. Like you, I researched the NADA for info on asking prices, but found that it is a buyers market for sure, and the NADA prices didn't really mean a thing. We had hoped to profit, but soon realized that just getting the payoff would do just fine.

We were at the point of "parking it in the back yard" and wait for the economic times to improve. But we are picking up our fifth wheel next week and I didn't really want two RV's in the yard.

Luckily one evening a couple stopped by and loved the layout, and offered to purchase. Of course they wanted to pay a certain price and we were looking for a certain price. So to make a long story short, they came up a lot more than we went down and the end result is both sides are happy.

Good Luck!!!!!
