Newbie

We are going to pick up our first motorhome from FLORIDA
to Shreveport La and driving back. We will probably stay in new
Orleans for a couple nites and then back to FL.
what should I have prepared to take and best route? I’m using apps
That are more confusing than helpful! Thanks in advance
Kelly

NADA isn’t a very good indicator of actual value or what you would expect to pay. I would venture to guess that they are closely tied with the lending industry and keep values low to mitigate lending risk on a significantly deprecating item. Others will argue their values are based on real sales data of other units sold. I would ask them, when have you seen any RV priced at or near NADA value? Maybe those are wholesale numbers represented as retail?

In any case, NADA may be valuable for negotiating price, and your lender will use it to determine what they will loan, but I would recommend shopping for that same/similar unit nation wide on several websites and come up with your own average value, keeping in mind differences in condition and that many of the prices you see will be negotiated down.

Welcome to the IRV2.com FORUM(S).

When you first enter this group, a new Member may feel a bit overwhelmed by all the forums you can find here. First, you need to set up your USER CP
Once you open and start a menu will open on the left side just take it all in the step-by-step top to bottom.

NEXT, you will find this forum is made up of 14-Forums broken into four-part forums. First is the HOME, top left above the member's menu. This forum is very helpful to new members to learn and become more familiar with overtime.

NEXT TO HOME is FORUMS on the top left covering Community, RV Lifestyles, Regional and RV Camping. and to the right of this is RV Forums.

RV FORUMS on the top left covers a lot about TRUCKS, Conversations, MVT's, HDT's, Travel Trailers/5th Wheel Chassis & TECH stuff, Chassis CLUB, RV SYSTEMS, Powertrain Garage.

Then you have the OWNERS FORUMS Covering Registry, A-M, and N-Z.

Now if you pan down to the bottom of the page you will find other FORUMS and if you know or have a Class B, you can direct or join the CLASS B FORUMS at Class B Forums And if you get down to Florida this link may be very HELPFUL http://www.CampFlorida.com Enjoy the Roads.

So welcome you again, I hope you join in the fun and share your knowledge by helping new members find their way in this forum as you would in, any RV Park. Again, make sure to set up your USER CP as this is helpful to you and other members. Again if you enjoy or think of starting your own RV Blog you can do that here as well above on menu bar is BLOGS Enjoy and safe TRAVELS. You can also find RV PARKS above in CAMPGROUNDS.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new rig.

You are joining a good group of folks here with good info to share.

We use the Garmin 770 for motorhomes and have not had any problems with this unit.

Good luck and enjoy the adventure!
