Here's another thought to ponder.. In 5 years the 2005 which is the newer body style will be as old as the 2000's are now.. Anyone think you could buy a 2005 in 5 years for under 200k? If it sells for as much as a 2000 now it maybe mid 100's..

Because Newell's in a unique market, I have to believe the buyers for slide upgrades truly are there. Similar to how company's take old and new buses and convert them. Most of the bus converters will do a conversion on both new and used chassis. To think the new converters start with a $750,000.00 Prevost chassis and small amount of MCI's. I always wondered what it really cost Newell to produce their own chassis? That has to be half their profit on a new coach. So, you know they make more per coach than a converter.

Depending on the economy and such, Newell is currently only building 24 coaches a year when they had been building 48 plus, this could be a game changer in 5 years plus most will be quads.

My conclusion from examining lots of high end motorhome prices is that selling prices decline about 50% over 10 years. The first few years from new may have a different pattern, but I've been surprised at the consistency of this pattern when applied to coaches more than a few years old. Older professionally converted Prevosts may be an exception when they get more than 20 years old as their prices seem to flatten out more than say Newells and Foretravels, again depending on condition - a crappy coach will sell for way lower no matter who built it. It also seems that high end coaches depreciate more in the early years than more moderately built brands.

I agree with you but at 10 -15 years what surprises me is it doesn't seem to stop.. I paid 200 for my 96 in 2001 and its worth and if I was buying it back i wouldn't give more than 75 for it now. NOt because it wasnt awesome but because of what else you can buy just above it. My plan right now is to buy. Something around 100 keep it for 5 years or so and then try to buy an 06 "new body style" and keep,the old one for my kids to use.. It won't be worth much but will give the kids something to use.. I have 6 of them.. Someone would like it.. Lol...I figure in 5 years the 06 should be in the low 200s. That's what the 2001's are selling for now...

Yachts: I agree it doesn't stop. I bought my 77 coach 10 years ago for about $40,000, today it is worth about half that and I expect in another 10 years it will be half again though if well cared for it may decline more slowly but maybe not. At some point I would expect it to level off commensurate with condition, I had expected that when I bought it and it hasn't happened yet. For those coaches that are farther up the depreciation curve I see no reason the 50% per decade won't continue for a long time.

From our following of things it appears most of the information in this thread is very accurate.

I bought my 1991 6-7 years ago for 133k. That was a little high but the condition and the updated interior sold me. If it had ONE slide I'd be happy!

Jimmy,
We had same thing about wanting a slide on our '92. After the remodel, I have decided I do have 1 slide (counting the step cover).
