It just depends on the shape and how well it was taken care of. The hunt is half the fun I guess.
I am assuming RVTrader has been one of the tools you have been using. It gave us a good idea of what was out there before we actually ventured onto a dealer's lot. Just remember, negotiate the price, dance the dance and if you don't like the way it is going, walk. Salespeople hate to loose a "live one", sometimes you can use that to your advantage....and no, I don't always follow my own advise.
We are also debating the toad thing. Neither of us wants to get rid of our current vehicle and we don't want to add another to the insurance roll, so we are going to try rentals at or near our destination. We'll see.
