Looking to buy our first Class A coming over from the 5ver camping scene. In the market for a diesel pusher under the $70K range. Question is where do I start with offers? Is NADA realistic? Found a Fleetwood Providence and a Discovery today online. Providence was real close to NADA values but the Discovery was 30K over NADA. What gives?

In my opinion, NADA is a joke. Pricing is determined by what people are willing to pay.

For $70K, you can step up into a really decent coach in the Country Coach/Monaco line

Look around at what other diesels are going for.

NADA is not realistic. A coach that has been well cared for and updated is the same price in NADA as one that has been neglected. That does not make sense.

Look online to see what is selling for what amount of money. See how well the coach was cared for and if there is a set of maintenance records to prove it. Look at the better brands and the higher end lines. Decide what features are a must have and which you can live without. Expect to see a lot of coaches before you find the one that works for you.

Nada Guide is a little bit of a help when comparing one coach to another coach but not necessarily when deciding what you want to offer for either coach. Nada guide price for the coach in our signature is about $89,000. I doubt I would pay that for our coach if we were looking but I also wouldn't take that for our coach because it is worth more to me because I know everything about its care and upkeep being the original owner.

Cruise RVT and RVTrader for the models you're interested in. Subtract 20% from the prices.

I don’t know of very many resources to determine what a coach actually sold for. PPL’s website is the only one I know of that does this.: https://www.pplmotorhomes.com/sold-rvs

You can do a search on eBay and on the left hand side of the page is a box to check "COMPLETED SALES". The sales that are in GREEN are the ones that actually sold and the price that was paid.
Even knowing what a coach sold for is not much help unless you could actually inspect that coach and see if was in the same condition, came with the same extras, and had the same maintenance records as the coach you are comparing it with.
