Hello RV friends,
I finally got brave enough to post on this forum! I have been reading posts for years! Some of you even were nice enough to help me pick out my first RV. I am asking for your assistance again. We lost our Laredo in a fire a couple months ago. I would like to replace it and have my eye on another Keystone Laredo bunkhouse. Can anyone tell me what would be a fair price for a 2006 Laredo 30 BH? Also, would a Reese 15K or 16K hitch be recommended?
Thanks for your help. You all are wonderful!

NADA low retail is $23,920 and that is about what I would pay.

Welcome, Supercamper. Hope you get that replacement trailer soon so you can get back on the road!

As for your hitch question, are you asking about weight capacity or the Reese brand? On weight ratings, more is better. Your hitch will last a lifetime and you may get a heavier trailer later on. On the brand aspect, Reese is good but so are many other brands.

Supercamper, Welcome to the IRV2 website, glad nobody was hurt, rv's can be replaced.
Base your hitch on the weight of your rv, although I always got the hitch heavier(BIGGER) than what i actualy needed, for safety sake(peace of mind)and just in case i would be getting a bigger unit. Ed.S
