10 year limit?

Wife and I are hunting for our first RV. I have found several I am interested but oddly they are all 07-08 models. Are there a lot for sale in this range because it is near the 10 year old limit of most financing? If I buy an 07-08, and go to sell it in 5 years to upgrade will I have a hard time selling because of the age? If it matters they are in the $40-60k range.

Depending on what you are looking for I would think 40 to 60k should get you a 2010 to 2015 class C. I am not sure what the class A models go for. Perhaps that is what you are looking for.

We usually finance through our credit union. I think on older vehicles, they look for a larger down payment(10% maybe). We just bought our DP last year and they didn't bat an eye; but we had a 20% down payment.

In November of 2014, I purchased a 2012 Winnebago Access 31C that had been purchased mew 18 months earlier. It was in great condition with 10K miles. I paid less than $50K. I wouldn't pay $40 - 60K for an 07 or 08.

OK--"apples and oranges" here: Class C vs Class A, gasser vs diesel--the only common issue is 10 years??????? Do your homework and see what the market is like for various models and brands. 10 years is sort of a "guideline"--long-term financing and interest rates, insurance coverage and rates, parts availability, etc are all issues. Some think a gas engine over a 100k miles is shot, while a diesel over 100k is just broke in--smile. For some a pre-DEF/EGR/regen diesel engine is a positive. However, keep any of them 5 more years and you are not going to get much at resale, unless spotless, a "classic" with extensive maint. records, or just the right buyer.

I'm in a Class C forum, so I assumed the question referred to a Class C.

Research RV depreciation. There is a good blog on it at this link RV Depreciation: Everything you could possibly want to know - Camper Report
Although it seems logical that depreciation would increase because many banks won't lend on RV over 10 years old, that doesn't seem to be the case. So, for me, this would not be a major consideration.
