Is this a good deal for a 2013 Coachmen Freedom Express 296REDS?

Rv Dealer asking 17,900 for it. It has two large slides. It's a beauty. Is the price right!

If it's in good shape, that seems like a good price to me.

Something is amiss. That's 1/2 NADA price. Dealers usually charge more than NADA.????????

I went yesterday looking and they salesman said to me 22,000 and then last night went to their website and it's listed for 17,000. I was thinking he misquoted me by a lot . You think they would honor advertised price??

I would check every square inch of that trailer. It's priced way too low.

Yes, they need to sell at the advertised price. That's bait and switch. However, get someone who knows trailers very well to have a look at it. That price is 1/2 the NADA value. Dealers do not sell under NADA. Be careful. Something is wrong. Ask them straight out. Why so cheap????

That's pretty common unless they know you looked online. Seems like a proper price for a 3 yr old RV, depends on condition. Check out the prices of new ones online. I'm amazed at the range of prices online for new 5th wheels. Same model can be priced anywhere from $40,000 to $55,000.

Sounds like they are playing games with you. It doesn't sound like a very reputable dealer.

Is this the dealer and the ad? If so, I'd pay $100 to have an attorney on the line with me when I called them back telling them I'll be there this afternoon to discuss purchasing it at their advertised price.

Longview RV in Windsor CT has a bad reputation. I would never do business with them. This is just another example of how shady they are.

Too many good dealers out there.
