Mint Condition

Hi peeps
Well another question .... Looking at a used coach, if they the seller are selling their coach as "MINT CONDITION" is there still any room for negotiation on their asking price Because they put a new paint job on and replaced other big ticket items tires batteries and has been recently serviced. ..

There is always room for negotiation. Figure out what you want to pay for the coach and start haggling. You do need to take the new tires, batteries and service into account as these are expenses you may have to eat if you buy a coach where they need to be replaced. If they do not want to meet your price you can walk away. There are lots of coaches out there.

If they are selling it, they do not want it.

I have purchased numerous big ticket items where the seller stated that his price was FIRM.

They always get a lot less firm when you pull out the checkbook.

I do not really think "mint condition" includes a new paint job. If it was in mint condition it would of not needed painted.

The RV Reviews | Review RV Values, Camper and Trailer Specs, Motorhome Value & RV Prices | NADA RV, Recreational Vehicle Appraisal Guide | NADAguides provide a good starting point for negotiating. They give an "average retail" price; accessories and options should only be added for things that were truly optional equipment. So add for the satellite dish (if so equipped) but not for the regular TV antenna.

You can always negotiate. When the seller says "mint" condition, his 'mint' and my 'mint' are not always the same. Plus, his might be a piece of junk, but he's trying to sell it.
