A good deal?

I am looking at purchasing my first RV. It happens to be a 2012 Forest River Georgetown XL 350ts. It had one previous owner and has 3,800 miles on it. The generator has 23 hours on it. It has almost all of the bells and whistles from that year and they are asking $85,000. Based on the many pictures I have seen it looks brand spanking new! I have not seen it in person yet and I will before the deal is done. Wanted opinions on whether this is a good deal, bad deal, or possibly too good to be true.

Well, one year (or less) old coaches are fairly rare, so in that sense its a find. But you didn't mention the length, floor plan, number of slides or any other salient features, so it's hard to evaluate the pricing. The MSRP on a 2012 Georgetown XL ran from about $126k to $132k and you could have bought it new for 20%-25% below that, so $85k for a year old, used one is not actually a steal. But if it suits your needs, it is probably a fair price. Of course, you can (and should) make a lower offer and see where the negotiation goes.

Former Georgetown owner here -- that's a good entry-to-mid-level Class A gasser, generally well built and trouble-free (though no coach is without problems from time to time), and it sells extremely well. We enjoyed ours, and only traded it so we could upgrade to a DP.

Price out a similar coach brand-new, and see what the difference is. I know the market has picked up in the last year or so, but not too long ago you could have gotten a new one for about that price.
