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.
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.
