Gas price driving RV price down?

Not a chance if this is any indication. Isn't that about twice new price?

Great to hear when good things happen. Glad you were well taken care of.

Mine is a 16' deluxe and I'd feel guilty asking $25,000 and it has some great upgrades/modifications.

Will be interesting to see if they hook one at that price! Gas prices going down, they'd better jiggle the bait.

I’ve actually seen an increasing number of what i’d consider good deals, so I think the market may be past the peak. Still, small units will be far more resilient in the face of higher gas prices than larger RVs.

I’ve also seen more than one unit from MN that was clearly ordered last year on speculation with the intention of reselling. Interesting concept. If Scamp catches on, it may bring a change to their lenient deposit policy.

I doubt they’ll get $40K, but they’ll likely still make a tidy profit.

I wonder if this is real. It seems to me I saw the same story posted for a 13 for sale in California.

I live not too far away; if anyone is seriously interested, call the seller, get his address and I could driver over and confirm the unit at least exists.

That said, IMHO this is not worth $40k. Maybe a couple thousand over new just so you can get it immediately.

Gee I don't know. I think maybe prices are going down. Of course this Casita is listed on the NH Craig's list with a Nebraska area code, the map puts it just north of Sacramento, and the repair is very solid.....

Any time you see random tracking code letters and a low price, turn and run.
Plus this had the odd area code and map problems.
