Txnbyga1972.....That's way to high for that coach. My sister has a 2004 Itasca Meridian, which is the sister to the Journey. There's is in excellent condition and is only worth about $75K. Our local dealer had an identical unit to my sister's coach and he only got $80K (typical higher than private party.

If you like that Journey model, add the Itasca Meridian to your search, it's the same coach with maybe a fancier interior and paint.

If it is registered in Canada and for sale in Texas...why? Did it get to Texas and die? See if you can get ahold of the owner and get the whole story...or at least his version.

Right now diesel pushers are not that good of deal. Diesel fuel prices are staying about the same while regular gas prices are falling dramatically. A motorhome with a regular gas engine might be a better investment. Get something with a hemi if you need good towing power.

This is probably a strange request, but has anyone ever run into this type of scenario? Thanks for any advice or enlightenment.

I had a similar situation a few years back when selling a unit for friends of the family, the husband passed away in Florida and the widow couldn't drive.

The Catch 22 was it had come into the US on a 'visitor basis', not 'imported'. When a prospective purchaser tried to title it the first question they were asked was "Where's the importation paperwork from the US & Canadian customs folks?".

Canada customs said they would ONLY issue export documents at border crossing point or port is going by sea. US customs said they'd issue the paperwork at any port of entry, even in Florida, but without the Canadian paperwork that didn't help any.

In the end the easiest thing turned out to be driving it back to Canada and selling it up here the next summer.
