There is a HUGE mark up on new rigs......there is also the other side of this which is a 2 year old rig has had all the bugs worked out and misc items corrected under warranty which can be a big headache.......

That's a fact!
Now if I could find my clone that buys new and sells to me used I would be in clover
Every "New" Newly purchased vehicle I own
(Right now 4) with the exception of my Wife's Jeep has been a huge problem for the first year
Now,knock wood,with all the growing pains worked out and my attention to detail I would be privileged to buy a used vehicle from Me, HaHa!

Buying used has its advantages.
We bought a 9th month old 2015 TT for a very reasonable price. The original owners were moving out of the snow belt and moving to a condo in the south. What we gained was a fully equipped TT from WD hitch, kitchen appliances, numerous elec/pluming mods, tools, all elec & plumbing supplies, a test ride w/ our TV, to warranty work completed...well you get the picture. The only thing we needed was fuel in the TV. Would I buy new again??? Not if I found a TT and seller like we had with this experience.
Ozeek....Good luck with your decision

Happy Trails

Even if you buy used, you still face depreciation. We bought a 2002 Georgetown 325 from its original owners in 2010. It has 11,800 miles on the odometer and 50 hours on the generator. We paid $37,000, about $3500 less than blue book. Four years and 6000 miles later, we sold it and the best we could get after having it on the market for 8 months was $21,000.

Four years, $2600 in repair costs and depreciation of $16000 made for an expensive ownership.

Unfortunately this ain't real estate.
You buy it and use it up.
We went back and forth on an RV or a cabin in the mountains/condo by the beach
The price we pay for freedom to move about the country.
The article I posted just points out how to minimize the amount of money you are ultimately going to spend to own this freedom
