    I'm new to the fun - seems like Class C about 25 feet is the right way for my wife and me. The dodge sprinter chassis vehicles look intriguing, with the diesel look like they are selling in the $70's and higher. Gas models with similar features are $5 to $10,000 less. I might drive 10K per year on average over the next 5 yrs.
    3 questions: 1, Considering resale and guessing about the future price of gas/diesel, which is the best way to go?

    2, When I look at a typical ad, the msrp might be listed as, say, $109,000 and the selling price might be $79,000. How much lower than that can I negotiate to in this current market? I live in the northeast.

    3. If I were to consider buying used, in the 24 to 27 foot range, what should I consider, with how many miles max, etc. Or in this market am I nuts to think about used?

    thanks for any help, Steve

    We bought a used 2006 Four Winds Dutchmen Express 29' Class C with only 6000 miles for at least 1/2 of what you are saying. There was a new one 2009 25' also still about 1/2 of the price you are listing of course these are Chevy 6.0 gas motors. Husband did not want diesel for whatever reason. So do plenty of research. Of course I live in Texas so your prices will vary. I am sure there will be many others with information that will help you. Also you may be able to find just what you are looking for at a really reasonable price if you are willing to travel a little ways to pick it up. While doing some research, I noticed that in places like Florida and California some of the prices of used units were lower. Welcome to the forum by the way. :)

    Hi Sawwood,
    What did you wind up buying? I'm now in the same position you were in then. Hope you still look at this site.
