DW just called from her office, stunned.
She'd emailed a dealer in New Braunfels, Texas, Evergreen RV,
with an inquiry about trading our 2005 Fleetwood 39S for their 2008 Dip SKQ.
"I got your email, you'd be lucky to get $50K for yours with that mileage (89K)," he said, and hung up
Of course, it raises two big questions: First, how can any salesman, during a recession with record fuel prices, conduct himself like that with clients; and, if mileage matters, why can't it used to compute NADA values? The book specifically says mileage only applies to gassers.
In any case, Evergreen sounds like one to avoid.
Meanwhile, we're boarding a plane to Houston tomorrow to look at another rig being sold by a dealer with a little bit more on the ball. And, while our Newell, Essex and Prevost friends are all facing 5-digit repair bills this month, the Fleetwood is running like a watch.
