Seasonal price fluctuation

Do prices on used units tend to go up at this time of year and down at the end in August/September? I'm in Texas and expect to buy in state. Wondering about the advantages of waiting. Thanks!

I would think prices hold more steady at prime times. but a willing dealer will do what he has to do...just make offers like its winter and hope for the best...jeff

I would think dealers are more apt to offer better deals during their off season. There may not be as much of an off season in Tx. You might find better deals in the north during the cold months.

Depends on what part of Texas. We are in the Houston area where there are only 2 days of "winter" per year, so the pricing stays fairly consistent year round.

Part of my thinking was that more people might decide to sell at the end of the summer, create a surplus and a softer market. Sounds like that's not the case.

We bought our Bounder in November, thinking prices might be lower after the "season." We were wrong. (Of course, your experience may be totally different.)

When you deal, it is always your money involved.

They stated a price.
I always made a counter offer, no matter the season, that made them look at me like I had 3 heads. It worked 2 of 3 times.

It at least starts the bargaining.

Thanks, CampDaven. They probably have a mirror and acting coaches in the backroom so they can practice giving "that" look.

When did you do an inspection? I see online that PPL has there person do an inspection for $300 bucks. Fox guarding the hen house --

I did my own inspections as I have lots of RV and drive train experience. Cannot help you on pro inspectors.
Perhaps you know an RVer?
I checked everything and operated everything. I only put untested trust in the plumbing.
I test drove in all road conditions to, about 45 minutes.

Best of luck!

If you are talking about PPL, remember they are selling on consignment for private selelrs, so they have no control over the pricing.
