The other alternative is that NADA / JD Powers is useless on older RV's, when I bought my current coach in 2016, I had spent nearly 6 months searching for one of a couple of specific models of coaches within a 1,500 mile radius, in that time I missed out on a couple that sold the same day they were listed for $1,000 - $2,000 above NADA, I considered one coach that was listed at $3,200 above NADA, however it was sitting at a long term site in the Mountains of NC, and had not moved in 2+ years since having its brakes go out getting to the camp ground. In the end I bought my coach for $5,200 above NADA which was $4,500 below initial asking, and I lucked into it less than 48 hours after it was listed, which I consider a bargain given that it had received over $10,000 in upgrade in parts alone in the preceding 2 years (tires, batteries, refrigerator, suspension upgrades, new carpet, new seating, etc.).
