$7000 doesn't seem crazy unreasonable. They had to make money on it when they sold it, right? So, let's say they made $2500... and that's not unfair, it's what a business does. Leaves $4500 on the table. When they sell it again, they need to make money on it again, say $2000. Leaves $2500 on the table. When you were looking at campers, if they showed you a new one and a used one that were $2500 difference between them, which would you choose?

We bought our 2012 26BH in March of 2012. It was "used" the previous owners took it out a couple times and found it too small for their family of 6. We paid $10,900 for it (with power awning, power tongue and stab jacks), the dealer had ours sitting next to a couple of brand new 2012s, one had all the power goodies and the other was all manual. The new 26BH with power options was $15,500 and the manual one was just over 13,000.

I thought we got a pretty good deal, but I wonder how much the first owner got taken to the cleaners.
