    Wow I got almost exactly the same (and for similar reasons) except I didn't think the cookies were that good ; )
    --Showroom new 2013 Jay Sport (bought July 2013) with AC but no furnace or battery, otherwise ready to camp (although I have spent around $500 more on heaters and other accessories).
    Price was 5999.99

    I could have "saved" a few thousand by buying used, but with all the potential problems and possible expenses, plus the fact I got a two year warrantee and I know everything is clean, made it worth buying new. It's a small spartan rig but it works for me, and I wanted to keep the GVW under 1750 lbs so the TV (2000 lb tow rating) would not be strained in the MTNS.

    $4500 for a 2007 Rockwood 1640 LTD that had been camped in 3 times by the original owners.

    It had upgrades: Awning, refrigerator, A/C

    It had a battery and a full propane tank, stove, all that stuff.

    It also was fully stocked with dishes, utensils, and a brand new microwave.

    The only think I had to buy was the bedding. I went ahead and replaced the tires, too, after a few trips. nothing wrong with them except age, and we were planning a long distance trip so wanted to be careful.

    In another year or two I plan to sell it and get a Trailmanor. I'll very likely buy used off Craigslist (again).

    $2000 for a 2004 Viking Epic 1906. Still had the plastic on the matresses, furnace and fridge never used. Painted the roof with elasmeric roof paint, new tires. Its in pretty good shape. Does anyone think this was a decent deal?

    725 for a 95 Coleman Utah. New bear creek canvas 875, new matresses about 200. Probably could have made due with it as is, but man it was worth it. No more mildew smell or mouse holes.

    $240 for our pretty much ready to go '97 Palomino. The previous owner bought a new one and just wanted to recoup his storage fee for the last couple years. [:D]

    We paid $1200 for a 1996 Viking Legend 2060ST in September, 2013. The interior is pristine, it looks like the stove has never been used (nor have we used it), and while the canvas is mildew-free, hole-free and water-tight, it has seen better days. The screens have holes that we will need to repair, and we have to replace the small 4 blocks of wood and the bolts that attach the roof to the lift poles. But all in all, we feel we got a good value for the money!

    $3500 For a 2006 Rockwood Freedom 2270. Heat, 3 way fridge, heated mattresses, elec. brakes,roof fan. Great shape, super clean. Plus Add a Room.

    The folks I bought from were super nice, asked $4500 originally, but let it go for less since they didn't want to winter it. Their entire property was meticulously maintained & I think this was, too.

    I could have found something for less, but I felt that doing business with them was a great choice.

    Our first pup in Sept 2011, we bought a 93 Coleman Arcadia for $1500. AC, shower, indoor and outdoor grill, microwave, potty, and stocked with dishes, pots, pans, etc. The plan was to use that for at least a year and determine if we'd continue camping frequently enough to spend more on a camper, and if so, to determine what amenities we wanted.

    February 2013 we bought a brand new Rockwood Premier 2514g with AC & slide for right at $14,000 after TT&L & added sway bar. We are in love with the new Rockwood and we still camp like crazy. We shoot for 2 weekends a month (sometimes 1, sometimes 3) plus 2 longer 5-10day trips a year. I would live in it full-time on the road if I could support myself doing so.

    $1500 for ours'...it has never leaked and I only had to rework the rear bed slide (rollers, spacers, shoulder screws, etc.). It's the 3rd season we've had it and next season it gets new tires. [:)C] [SUN]

    We paid $4495 for ours and believe we got a Great Deal. We looked at cheaper and some more expensive. This one was the one made just for us. We are very Happy!!!!!!!

    $1 for '04 fleetwood Tucson (family ;)

    I'm thinking of selling it and getting something bigger (>= 12' box). Camping with a wife, a 1 year old, a black lab and a German Shepard in a 8' box just don't work well.
