Another question about buying used MH

Hi everyone,

I've seen on a number of threads that it is not uncommon to get a 20 or even 30% discount (from MSRP presumably) when buying a new motorhome from a dealer. Is there the same kind of negotiating room when purchasing a used MH from a dealer? What frame of reference would you normally work from? NADA or something like that? I realize the answers are probably going to depend on a number of factors but I'm just trying to get a general sense of the collective experience. Thanks!

My experience, Six years ago the dealer wanted $70,000. for our rv. I offered 50,000. and brought it home. I'm still happy.

Use NADA and do not apply any add-ons. I think you'll find dealers are even higher than high-resale. Depending on how bad you want the unit depends on where you want to start the negotiating price. Where there's value for one there won't be value for another so unfortunately there's no true magic formula. But NADA will give you a running start on where you want to start.
