I saw on craigslist here
https://seattle.craigslist.org/est/rvs/6813224059.html

And seems to be around my budget but its 2017 and used
I sent first message to owner and she mentioned she will accept the amount of 15500 and no lower then that. Seems pretty fast in accepting that and think I could have gone lower.

How much would you guys get for this?
 
A source to get  basic info on used Rv's, try NADA.com, they have sections for all RV types, then try a few used RV web sites to compare asking prices for similar units. Then you really need to see the trailer posted and compare your web info  vs. actual trailer conditions. Good luck!
 
Here's a 2018 for $16,000 brand new. It must be a leftover. And you could probably get this one for $14,000 or less if they really wanted to move it. Have your seller on GL look at this link.  I also found another one for $13,500 for a 2017.

Thank you. I heard of nada but didnt know it was like a Kelly blue book type and thought it was for new rvs only.

That's great information. I'll pass this onto the seller but know ing you can get considerable amount of discount off new rvs dealers want off their lot seems I'll be looking for more options now.

You guys are fast!
 
You should get 30-35% off the MSRP on a new trailer. Go look at family owned, smaller dealers. I never have had a good experience at a big dealer. Not saying they are all bad, but I sure haven?t ever bought from one. Smaller family places stay in business with the same sales staff for many years only if they are decent.
 
I heard of 30 to 35 percent off but why do dealers have it so high? Is it cause sometimes some buyer will roll by not doing their homework and negotiate 1 or 2k off a 20k rv thinking they got good deal ?

But I'm very happy to hear that


Also.. you mentioned family owned. Is there way to tell if its family owned or not?

Here in Washington state theres lot of rv sellers and a of them seem like large sellers.  I dont mind a big seller if they are pushy etc.. just want to save.

 
The R-Pods are a nice looking TT and so light that they can be towed with a half ton pickup. I like the aerodynamic design and that they have a slide-out which gives them more room. Hope you can negotiate a low price. RV traveling season is almost here. That is, except for the hard core and adventuresome RV owners who like to go camping all seasons.

Please let us know which TT you decide to buy. Best wishes.
 
NADA/RV shows new MSRP for all models - when sold.  If using this, you may need to add for ACTUAL options, not for std equipment items.  The 30% off new can be applied to this, or 40% + for used price.??
