He's also added amenities like charging ports, bedroom fans, battery power shutoff, and added interior storage. It shows very little wear inside & out.
He's asking $23,500 which will include a Cummins 4500i inverter. Being new to this, I first went to the NADA guide to look at values. It shows $15,850 as the base price. Adding the things I saw that might actually have been standard in the first place like TV, stabilizer & grill mount, and including the inverter, the value still only bumps up to about $18k.
So... I'm looking for guidance on the overall quality of this travel trailer, issues anyone might have had with one, and whether or not NADA has any real value in a case like this one where it's been so well taken care of.
Flying blind here & looking for help.
Thanks in advance!
Hi and welcome to FRF, from a native NorCaler.
Unfortunately, prices out West are very often higher than NADA prices. Dealers out here., charge much higher prices than in other parts of the country.
Add the fact that new and used RVs are selling like hotcakes right now and inventory is low, sellers can ask for much higher prices.
IMHO, NADA prices are useless out here.
