2006 Newmar Essex 4503

Alright, looking for the ugly details before I pull the trigger on buying a 2006 Essex. Is this a smart play, or should I be looking for something newer knowing the quality will not be the same with a Fleetwood at the same price point.

Buyer's market. NADA has a low value of $111k and an avg value of $134k. I've usually found that the lower side of NADA, without "options" added in, is a good starting point. Sounds like what they are asking is pretty high.

A 2006 Essex had top of the line electronics when it was built. Those electronics are now 17 years old and can be problematic.

I sold our 2008 Essex because of the Eplex system Newmar used. It was a pain. Also asking price is way high for that age RV. Do your research there are a lot of options out there for that price point.

Enjoy the journey

Safe travels
