26DBH cost?

I posted this question on the economics forum but figured I'd also try this forum since it's all Cherokee related. I had an interesting interaction w my local CW dealership today. In short, I'd like to know what others are paying for a 26DBH?

Thanks!

The 23dbh is usually about 1500 cheaper and the Cherokee 274dbh about $1500 more. These are all before taxes. Also depends on part of country and dealers. I paid a little more for mine but the dealer has great reviews and customer service.

I feel you! I think I've decided I'm not gonna work w CW. Just got a bad taste yesterday. I'm considering RV wholesalers or RV Nation now. I'd rather buy a used TT to really save $ but I just don't see much inventory near me that looks really clean. There are 2 RV rental places near by that cycle out their units after 12 months. Their prices are pretty competitive and they maintain the units well from what I can tell.

U can bargain and get a new unit for not much more than used units. I would never get a prior rental. Just my .02

This is part of what prompted my initial post. If I can get the bunkhouse I need new/warrantied for $16,500-$18,000k, I don't know that I will buy used. I am starting to think I can get a new unit in the range above. I'll have to shop and negotiate, but I love that process. At this point I would not buy used unless I could get the same floor plan for $12,500 or less and the unit would need to be 2-3 years old and impeccable.

That is awesome! Hope I can do the same! Was yours a base model or did it have any upgrades?

Your deal just got even better in my mind! I haven't found one that well equipped at the price you paid yet and I've looked hard.

Our 274dbh was just over $19k new. Same package as above minus aluminum rims. Also threw in a spare tire, tow hitch and sway bars. Think there was something else but nothing major.

I just bought a used 2015 26dbh, for $12,500 exactly. It is in perfect condition,and the previous owner threw in a lot of extras with it.
(Patriot Edition, apparently an AC Nelson of Omaha deal...not sure what's different than regular Cherokee, but they are selling new at $18000)
Weight dist. hitch.
Brand new Goodyear tires on the trailer.
sewer hose (extra, unused).
Portable black tank (or whatever that's called, in case of no dump handy).
Second TV that's installed (big one with little one in master).
He's a tinkerer, and did bunch of little bits/mods.
I also bought his two Honda generators for an extra $1500. Not a super deal there, but not bad either.

All in all, it was a good deal for both sides.


This is our first camper. I'm hoping that we all enjoy it and get a lot of use out of it.
