what is a fair sale price

I am wanting to sell my 2013 Sunseeker 3170DS, but I have looked and cannot determine a value for the unit. New price was $103,000. It is well equipped and like new. brand new tires with only about 75 miles. Only 10,000 miles. I see listed sale prices from 40 to 90 thousand. This unit has always been garaged, totally enclosed since new and professionally detailed every year. We are in Oklahoma. Can anyone give me an estimate on a fair sale price or how to find out ? Thanks

go to NADA and look it up there. Keep in mind price that a dealer asks and what private retail are very much different.

You can buy a 2018 model 3170 for 78k give or take. I am assuming you mean msrp was 103k in 2013.

We just recently sold a 2014 3170DS with 45k miles for $45,000. Others were available ranging from $42k to as high as $60k.

NADA and RV Trader are your best resources.

Be prepared for shock, when you get the NADA value.
Be sure to not add value for things that come standard or are "forced options.
Only add value for actual options, like a 15k a/c instead of the standard 13.5k a/c.
And you can add value for dealer added items or things you added yourself, like a slide topper.

It really did not depreciate that fast.
Take msrp and subtract 40%. Thats about
what the value was when u bought it. Compare that
to NADA average value.

X2 on 40%. When we were researching what we could expect to pay for a new rig I thought the article had to be mistaken. Not until we went to an RV show did we see discounts off MSRP in that amount.

If you actually paid $103,000 when it was new, you are one of those rare people that just pay "sticker price"

Never pay MSRP

No I did not pay sticker and put down around $30, but still owe the bank. Retired as a police Lieutenant and paid off my main house not enough to pay cash for the RV. I was hoping to be able to get mid to lower $50's. I love the Sunseeker, have had zero problems, but we are now raising 2 grandkids, not planned into the retirement, and something has to go. Thanks for all the advice

Him, and apparently every single person they show on those TV shows where some family is trying to buy an RV.

I bought a 2012 3170DS in spring 2016 for $48K from a private seller. It had 14K miles on it and was similar to yours as far as condition and storage.

Prior to buying, I used the PPL motorhome site's sold list to see the prices they sold their used inventory. I used as a reference as well as the NADA guide...
