    Due to a change in circumstances I want to sell my motorhome ( or p/x for a autotrail tag )but when I tried to get a price I have been told its too new and is not yet listed,
    Its a Karman Ontario 670 on a 58 plate fully winterised 4 berth, fully loaded. Silver cost £52500.00 in OCT 08 Only one in the country at the moment, and due to the euro/ pound is likly to be for a while. We had decided to downsize in Oct 08 but have missed the big motorhomes
    Any advice on price or P/ X please
    Thanks

    Off the top of my head sounds like £38 - £40k but dont hold me to it, just a gut feeling as I dont know the MH.

    Post some pics with specification etc

    Hi

    sorry I can't help with the valuation..

    just wanted to say I once owned a Karmann Mississippi on a VW chassis .. great motorhome, beautiful quality .. a joy to use.. but it was too small for full timing ..

    shame you have to sell it, no doubt you will lose a lot of money .. :Sad:

    Good luck

    Jim

    got to agree with peter(johns cross)
    once you've signed the paperwork you just lost many thousands off the value.

    i bought my hilux pickup new in late 04....£21,000

    looked to sell it last year with a genuine 15,000 on the clock and unmarked condition, private domestic use only.....£6,000.:Eeek:

    we lost nearly £8,000 between our last two used motorhomes due to poor judgement on size/needs and trading in too early.

    i'll never buy new again.

    Hi Kar-Mann it is only worth as much as someone will pay for it :thumb:If you know which you want to swop to then go around a few dealers and see how much to swop :thumb: If you cannot get around several dealers with stock of what you want then try emailing them with a link to what you have and want.(rough idea on what they will pay)
    Other than that it is auto trader or fleabay with a price that you will accept and see the response.Auto trader is about £40 ish and ebay £8 ish if it is not sold.
    Peter at JCM also gives a nice site out for m/h but I cannot remember it :Rofl1:
