Default 1998 bath and half at MOT

Motorhomes of Texas just got in a 1998 bath and half. Looks like a single front slide but not sure. $139500 with 117,000 miles.
Not on their website yet but I have a couple pictures if anyone is interested.

Trip home was nice. Stopped and paid my dues at the factory
Got in yesterday afternoon and hooked up. Nice to be back for a few months to be with family. But I'm already missing the low humidity.

Forest,
Not having seen the coach in person, do you think this price is a realistic fair market value?

Based on what we paid for ours (also at MOT) in March I'd say it's overpriced. Probably worth more like $100-110. Each slide adds about $15k. But you have to start somewhere. The condition is what's important. This one from the pictures looks like the carpet is dirty and worn. Has the zipdee main awning rather than the automatic Gerard. But the bath and half is probably worth a bit more if that's what you want.
Definitely worth looking at if they will work on the price. Remember to look at the age of tires and batteries.

Forest is being realistic; there are several 2 slide Newell's advertised for <$130k and they are not selling. These 2 slide coaches have being depreciating $7-14k per year last few years. The newer ones are losing more, look at the lot in Miami... more inventory that they have had in years and quad slides getting cheaper all the time. Newell's are not a investment; enjoy them! Look at what 2 slides sold for 3-5 yrs ago, in another 1-2 yrs they will sell in the $80k range and there will be many more coaches than cash buyers. If there was money to be made on these 15-25 yr coaches Newell would buy/refurb and sell. Looking at the dealer auction results that will tell you what the folks that make their living off selling RV's think the value is. Let's keep it real.
