Have you thought about the Schengen problem with your 6 months in Europe?Con’s more planning (auto gas locations ( (we had the LPG conversion and ringing sites to get the thumbs up on size and pitch) but this will change when we are in Europe - where we will be spending 6 months of the year
They have just got a 2016 Winnebago vista 29v in. Full handling kit. Been told it will be up for £80kQuick update: We called down to Signature on Saturday and had a non pressurised look around, any questions fully answered. Unfortunately the 2018 windsport 27B was not large enough and every wooden door had split and all the others wouldn't shut, not a good first impression, went and had a look at the aces and was pleasantly surprised, then had a look in the 29B Windsport 2020 different kettle of fish, enough room, all new tech ran from a central touchpad, light furnishings. The drawback, I cant stomach the cost of VAT depreciation as it drives off the forecourt, been there done that got the T shirt, so unless they come back with a fantastic trade in and price reduction on the screen price then it's dead in the water, unless they can source a 2019 which has the same tech and floorplan but without the big hit on VAT.
So if anybody knows of one for sale let me know, bit of a long shot but you never know
I have a friend who ordered a bespoke RS cost him £185k+ waited months, sold it less than a year later for around £100K. Don't know why they don't hold value?Thanks will keep an eye out, unfortunately RS trade in is a difficult one, dealers seem to struggle valuing or don’t want to
Supposed to be 4K (that's on my new static in Wales) BUT I got what I paid on my motorhome Px after 2 years use. Lots of expensive additions made though! It's subjective, miles, use, condition, service history etc.
I'm no expert but I think a lot say 20%the first year and 5%each year after that. As I say the vat things an excuse trotted out to explain the initial depreciation the value of anything is what someone will pay for it the depreciation on new and nearly new will I suspect be almost the same.
As you say you will probably get a lot better selling privately. Is that 20% of list price I don't think dealer fitted or other extras are reflected at all in resale.If you look at what RS offered sale or return was nearly 20% of purchase price, now mine is a 2013 so as you can imagine slightly insulted as I’m sure it would be back on the website for a mark up of £15,000ish, doesn’t look like signature are interested either so as we have now decided to rent somewhere or buy while we build new, the pressures off to get anything bigger, it’s definitely got me interested in the RVs and I start my journey for a class c with my medical this morning.
I understand dealers are out to make a profit but as already stated feel as if RS are trying to rip me off! If I was to trade up I’m sure the trade up value would be significantly different but I suppose that’s business for you.
So I will park this itch up for now and may try and sell private in the future to see what interest it generates.
Well we bought ours new in 2014 for 38k so on the same basis ours would be worth 8k next year!!!. I still see similar for sale at dealers for the low 30,s !!!No 20% off what I purchased for
I would call it upper end ish of market but not top end or posh, but I suppose it’s all relative to what you want and or can afford I suppose, in answer to your question though I would have lost approx 20% of what I purchased for, if I accepted their offer.Do you mean you have lost 20% or80%!!!
Which models are now on the merc chassis?Wish I was still licenced above 3500kgs as some of the new RVs based on Mercs are looking really nice.
