From what a dealer told us once, LOTS of Class C's barely used come up for resale. It's a popular option for recent retirees starting out with an RV as it's not as intimidating to drive as a Class A. All too often, something "happens" to one of the spouses and the other can't or won't continue to RV and they come on the used market barely used.

A quick search for used Mercedes sprinters   

2016-525 miles - $126,000

2015--13,000 miles- $115,000

2014-7,600 miles- $90,000

2013--28,500 miles- $87,500

 

Looks like you can save quite a bit of money buying a used one.  25% +. 

 

Hope that helps.

Was reading an article that when talking to a dealership on a Class C that you should not offer more than 50% of MSRP on the first bid, and then expect to pay up to 75% of retail.

From what I remember, and it's been awhile, I think we paid about 1/2 of retail on a Class C that was a few years old. I think it had 1,000 miles on it. Most things were still in plastic. I'm not sure the original owners really used it... maybe a trip or 2. 

We bought a Class C in 2015.  It was a 2013 and only had a couple thousand miles on it.  It looked brand new and we paid about 55% retail.  Our biggest problem was getting good terms on the loan, apparently my wife and I fall into a high risk category because of our age.

I would not immediately rule Thor coaches out. They own many of the major brands including Airstream and Jayco. I have a 2015 Miramar that I love. All of the nightmare stories I have heard about Thor have been dealers not backing the products they sell. I have only had minor issues with my Miramar and have called Thor tech a few times with questions (24/7 Support) and have no complaints. For 100K I have a Class A that has many features of ones costing allot more. Could fit and finish be a bit better, absolutely.. But at this price I feel I got my $$ worth.

We had some good and bad times with Rhino, but in the end we decided to go a new direction 🙂

It will be very interesting to see how a 10 day stay at the fort will be in our new trailer.  We arrive on August 13th.  Sadly, Rhino never got to stay at the Fort, but he did visit Disneyland.

Just read through this post and wondered what the OP eventually did. Did they buy the Class C, Class A, upgrade the TT? 

These are always interesting reads as there are as many answers as there are forum members. 

Hope they enjoyed their new RV whatever it was!

Thanks! Dumped Facebook a couple of months ago and need to read through some posts for info. 

This is a great site for getting information about the Fort and Disney. Not to mention just a fun site overall.

Welcome.   I spit myself out of Facebook about a year and a half ago, and this place is about the only place I still participate online.   The only problem is, pretty much everyone here is a bit off their rockers besides me.  I'm like the only sane person in a Disney obsessed asylum.

Ha! I kinda had my own epiphany on Disney after going about 30 times in 20 years. Haven't been since 2011. We're going this year so my wife can see the Christmas decorations. Kind of a 30th anniversary and a gift for her birthday. Don't know when the next time will be... if ever. Funniest part is we only live about 30 minutes from the gate. I haven't yelled at the computer since quitting Facebook!

Ok. Who left Dave unattended? He's trying to confuse the new members again.

Country Coach Guy, when it comes to DaveInTN a few things to remember. 

1. It is always his fault. 

2. He really misses the MSB Ooey Gooey Cinnamon Rolls.

3. Be careful if he offers you some of the Russian Green Death beer. I have not had it, but I have heard stories.

4. His daughter Anna gives the best hugs evah! If you ever get a chance to get one from her you should. 

5. He has been slacking on posting Anna pics. Maybe this will persuade him to fix that.

Keep on believing that Dave. Who knows a wish, a little pixie dust and one day it just might all come true.
