IF you read, the base value already includes the standard equipment. The checklist is for options. Most dealers try to double-count options that are already there.. They check awnings, AC, blah blah - wasn't meant to work like that.
Here's the biggest deals:
1) Was the coach stored out of the sun and does it look good?
2) Do you have records on it? That is, can you show that you followed the maintenance schedule?
The answer 1-2 is typically NO. If they answer is YES, then you're the kind of person that I want do deal with.
A ballpark value (private party) is going to be low book, correctly listed with NADA options (don't double count them). Add a bit more if it's really cared for well cosmetically and perhaps a bit more if you can show that it's been maintained to book specs.
A no-slides coach is handicapped these days.
Lots of people still look for CC... You can do a nationwide search (RV trader) for CC within 1 year of yours - there will be massive variation in price. Coaches that are trashed can look good on the internet (aahem, PPL motorhomes). CC is a desirable coach.
Be aware also - 2000 is probably too old for most people to finance without outstanding credit. Be honest with buyers up front about that, otherwise you may be wasting your time - or have a list ready of companies that will finance older motorhomes (they do exist) for people with excellent credit. People that can typically spend that kind of cash will be hard to find interested in a 2000...
