Hello from the East Coast!

Hi Everyone! Hope all had a Merry Christmas! Hey, I am considering purchasing a 2010 FOREST RVER FLAGSTAFF POP-UP 206LTD. It appears to be in great shape and it includes a cover. They're asking for $5700. The sellers indicate it has been very lightly and it has an awning. I haven't seen it yet but if possible it would be terrific if anyone could let me know if this price sounds like it's in the ballpark before we head out to see it. We are currently tent campers right now but we're ready to move up to our first pop up. Our Tow Vehicle is a 2003 Honda Pilot. Any information or perspectives would be very much appreciated. Thank you so much!

Thank you all! I checked NADA and so far the price they're asking is below NADA guidelines / quote. Next step, go check it out to see the actual condition. Again, many thanks! Onward!

When you look at the unit in person be sure to test everything out. A flashlight can be helpful in seeing that might not be generally visible. Signs of previous water damage is a big red flag.

I don't know why but, what I did when I was looking to gauge a good deal was look at the NADA, and not select any options. If it was in the low retail range on a unit without issues, I considered that a good deal.

The last two campers I was able to get it below the low retail number without options selected and I really got a great deal on them.

I have noticed that numbers are all over the place though. Not sure if you are financing or not but, that will play a factor too. Depending on who you finance through they will verify values to ensure they are not obviously loaning more money than the camper is worth.

Do a search online on rvusa.com or rvtrader.com and search for that model. See what the price ranges are. The majority that will come up with be dealers but, you can still get a rough idea. Obviously, if a private party is charging as much as a dealer, it's probably not priced exactly right.

Good luck and welcome to the forum!
