Hi folks. I have been watching/reading a lot of posts in this forum regarding your "first pop purchase". I finally found a used 2008 E3(looked good on the pics) that I have always wanted. Here are my concerns. 1. The dealer is asking for 3K more than what the NADA is saying for this particular year/model. Should I offer what "exactly" NADA is saying? Or 10% more? 20% more? What is the normal process on how to make an offer? 2. E3 is 700 miles away from me. I am willing to drive my TV to pick it up, after I inspect the unit. Sales Rep is willing to accept a deposit so they can flag the unit SOLD. I go down there to inspect. If I like it, I pay the balance (I'm paying CASH). If I don't like it, Sales Rep will refund my deposit. The draw back is the money I will spend for gas. I'm looking at $600 for gas, both ways. Bottom line is this. I am paying CASH (if it makes any difference). I will be spending $600 for gas. Will be driving 1400 miles, round trip. I REALLY like this trailer. What do you experienced folks suggest? I told the sales rep I will call back within 48hrs.
