Buying Used or New????
I keep telling myself that there is no reason to buy new. That is, unless RVs in 5 years from now have some major technical improvement.
So here is my story:
The current plan, unless destiny already has a different version of my plan, is for the DW and I to go fulltiming in 5 years.
I have recently started to do the research and prepare for fulltiming. Part of that is to learn as much as I can from the wonderful people in this amazing forum.
I'm currently planning on a DP MH, Class A, at 45'. I figure that size is just right for full timing.
I already have some idea of the manufacturer and model of RV. I also have a good idea of the amenities to go for.
Here is my wish list:
DP at 600 HP with > 1700 ft-lb of torque
AquaHot/Oasis with floor heating
Bath and a half
Washer/Dryer and Dishwasher
... plus floor plan acceptable to DW
... and I plan to buy used ... the question that keeps bouncing off the inside of my skull is, why would I buy a new coach in the year 2020 when a 2015 has all the amenities that I want?
Does anyone have another point of view on why it would make sense to buy new?
I mean, if a new $450K coach can be had for less than $250K in 5 years, isn't it saving $200K worthwhile?
