Thinking of selling class C.

I was thinking of putting my Class C on the market and wanted y'all's opinion on what a good fair price would be.....here are the specs...
2008 Coachmen Freelander
32'
1 wall slide
22,328 miles
Well maintained
No damage except for a couple decals pealing on one side
Generator has 238 hours

I owe 48k but don't expect to get that.

Thoughts??

If it's the diesel, you should be able to get about what you owe on it. If it's the gas, expect about 4 to 5 grand less.

Just my opinion.

I think you're in AZ. I don't know that market. I was looking for something similar in the OH area last year. So have a pretty good handle on what it might go for here. I'm thinking around $45 k. The big question is does it leak or is there any delam. If so, the price would go down. But I don't know how much as I walked from all that I saw with either issue. It's new enough that stuff should generally be in OK condition & work. But the wild card, at least from when I was looking, was leaks & delam.

Most of what I googled and saw on RV Trader and others were mid $30s to high $30s with some dreamers up to high $40s

Best of luck!

Thanks everyone, it is gas and does have one decal peeling. Not sure why it's only one.

Presentation is everything. You may want to replace the decal if it is really noticeable. Vacuum it from front to rear and make sure all the beds are made. Wash it making sure to remove any mold from the exterior and pay attention to the chrome. Use fabreeze on every room in the interior and if you've had pets inside you will want to air it out for a couple of days before you try to deodorize it. Remove all personal adaptations like art and family photos and only have the items you intend to let the coach go with. Clean out the storage bins and using a wet cloth clean the sills of the compartment doors. Make sure that all the lights both interior and exterior are working. Don't give the buyer an excuse to try to talk you down in the value.

Going with Average Retail from NADA in your area with minimal upgrades it sits around $56,000.00. We all know that NADA is your dream price but it is a starting point. I would try selling it at 4 to 5,000. Over what you owe and then offer discounts.

I take issue with the Febreeze. Many people are deathly allergic to it. When we were looking at used Class C's a few years ago, we must have rejected 20 or 30 of them because the owners used Febreeze. Once you have used Febreeze, there is no way to get that odor out.

If your RV is clean, no reason to use this product that makes me and so many others, sick.

Thanks all, and no it is not sold yet. I am not really trying too hard tho. It was an idea and truthfully my and my family enjoy the heck out of it still. We were throwing around the idea of selling the rv and getting a boat being we moved to Florida.

There is good camping in Florida

Your class C still works down here. There are some excellent camp grounds all around the state. Fort Wilderness is one of the best but I don't know if you are into Disney. You may want to add a second AC as one may not be enough but coming from AZ you know about heat. Why not get both a boat and keep the RV?

We have been camping once so far here in Florida and LOVE IT! We went to blue angels rec area in perido point and it was amazing. We plan on going to Disney this summer so will look into fort wilderness.
As far as your last question..."why not get a boat and keep the rv" well would you mind if I give you my wife's number and email address and you can help me talk her into it? I have been trying to talk her into since we moved here. Lol
