Great advice, Kodak. I wholly agree- I only recommend it because used units don't get mfr factory warranties. But you make all valid points.

Has this been a good coach? any known problems? What do they generally sell for? I know how to buy DP and how to figure out the price you should pay but the gas market I have not watched so close. In the DP world you have to mark off 26% the first year and the 4% each model year after that to come up with a good used price. I know what NADA says but what do they really sell for out there. Any input would be great as this deal may happen tomorrow. Thanks for any advice on what to check out on this model. Please PM me with price info so we do not make any one upset on the fourm.

So; whats the word, Did you buy it?

Seems high especially since it is used and almost 2 model years old as the model year swap to 2015 occurs in about a month. I bought my 2012 Sunseeker 3120 new (factory ordered exactly as I wanted) for just over $67k. It does not have every option but most including the high cost ones of full body paint and auto leveling jacks.
