Boat and Rv pricing and sales help offered.

As some of y'all know and most of the Texas clan knows, I have been in the boat and Rv business for over 9 years now. I have seen and done most everything in this industry. My specialty is buying/selling/pricing and technical information.
I currently am starting a website in a different industry but have plans to start a boat help forum/website this year. My reason for telling y'all this is I have never offered my vast knowledge for our members benefits and want to do so now. I have visited most large manufactures in this industry. Know how things are made/priced/devalued and so on.
If any of you have any questions now or in the future on buying/selling or what to look for in a used boat /rv or anything relevant to these industry's. Please feel free to ask.
I have always offered what I can to our members in regards to the unbelievably wonderful 6.0L Power-stroke. But never thought to offer what I know best.

Pm or post anytime

ok, looking for a "decent" camper. can be travel trailer or 5th wheel, doesn't matter. HAS to have bunks for kids. No need for top notch as I'm not sure the wife will like camping every other weekend (maybe trade up next year if she likes it). What direction would you steer me in? I know, very vague, but that's all I got.

Thanks for posting. My dad is going to retire in a couple years and wants to give the road a shot for about six months. I need to help him find some kind of suitable transportation. He is thinking one of those conversion vans I am not sure the technical name. Ill keep you in mind

As the guy above mentioned, Pop ups are a good way to go or hybrids (The kiwi is a hybrid) Hard side trailer with canvas pop outs. They are small, Light and easy to store. The one consistent negative feedback I get on pop ups is the ability to pack them. You have to crank up, Pack and crank back down. If that would not bother you, Go that route. Pop ups depreciate 4 times faster than travel trailers because of the canvas. So find something 3-5 years old. Look over all the canvas and let me know what you find. We can go into details at that time.
You can also find a nice 4-6 year old Travel trailer. The only kicker right now is allot of manufactures went out of business. Banks will not Finance a 4 year old or newer coach if the manufacture is not still producing.
Let me know if this helped.

It's worth about 10-11K. I just sold a NEW 2008 Sprinter 249RK but it was Alum frame and bonded wall w/ fiberglass exterior for 18,700 and tax.

Work them to 11K or pass.

I have been a Sprinter dealer since 99. Good coaches and Keystone is very strong right now.
Stay away from Fleetwood for now, They are good products but done in this industry.
