New vs Used?

Our family is wanting to get a 13' or 16' scamp (or similar), we live in Northern Iowa so the Scamp will probably be more abundant.

The search for a used one has really just seriously begun. The prices of the used ones are not that far off from new. Would we be better off investing in a new one for many years of ownership?

Thanks for the feedback!

Hi Jeremy! Welcome to

Hey, if you're lucky enough to find a used one ... in the shape you're comfortable with ... jump on it.

Years ago, however, after looking for a fairly new rig for a long, long, time ... we just decided to buy new.

We've bought three since then ... and find that we can usually sell them, well-used, for close to what we paid for them new.

Since these little molded fiberglass rigs don't depreciate like their big stick-built brothers, it's hard to go wrong buying new or used.

Check with your accountant, but the interest on a self-contained RV (with bathroom and water storage) is deductible as interest on a second residence.
