How did this go from an 89 Winnie
To one year old rentals ?

They may sell some rentals off every year, and buy more replacements for next season, but not one year old, they would be taking a loss on each unit
Can't stay in business that way


They don't take a loss on each unit. My buddy was the service Manager at El Monte RV. One of the largest rental places here in So CA. They have huge buying power with Fleetwood. They can sell a one year old unit with 40-50,000 miles on it for more than they paid Fleetwood to buy the unit brand new.

That is the business. Buy the unit at a low price. Rent it and make $20-30k on the rental income. Then sell it off 12-15 months later for more than you paid for it. and then buy a new rig for less than you got for the old rig. They will keep the rig longer. But only if it is super clean and low miles.

Oh...and $15k is way too much for that class C.

Good luck.

Yes, the buy in quantities early lots (1 year ahead of model year), so then they sell at original cost or better
