Default Good New Roadtrek Discount..

Would 21% off msrp on a brand new old stock 2018 SS Agile ($150,000 MSRP) be good enough to buy in light of the facts.. Roadtrek being in deep trouble and this being a 2018 model, when 2020 models will be showing up soon.

Who knows if the warranty will be honored.

If 21% isnt good enough, what would be enough?

Thanks!

When we bought our 07 C190P in Oct of 08, it was essentially two model years old, so similar situation. We got 24.7% off of sticker price.

Hey wanderingwheels...not sure where you live but this is probably as good as it gets. Not sure if they are still available but I'd give them a call.

There is a big RV show going on in Minneapolis, but they should have one salesman in the office tomorrow morning at Lake Region. Last time I looked there were two 2019 Agiles in their inventory... with a much bigger discount that you are reporting.


Great dealer... bought all 4 of my rigs from them.

Even if Roadtrek warranty has problems, the chassis and warranty for all the major components like the refrigerator, ac, etc. would still be valid.

But 21% off seems low. Id say ask for 35%. Walk away if they say no and wait a few days for them to call you back.

Agree on both counts.

I have never found RV warranties to have much value, although if I weren't a DIY'er, I might feel differently.

If the Agile has proprietary systems (lithiums, voltstart, etc) then the warranty is very important. I'd offer 30% off, then deduct another $10,000 for the value of the warranty.

We bought a slightly used 2015 Agile when it was less than 2 years old and had only 7200 miles. Still under warranty and got 32% of list.

If you are not in a rush, wait to see what happens with the orphaned company. If the worst happens, and they disappear dealers will be giving them away to get rid of them. Also don't forget to consider resale value ...

You must have more appetite for risk than I do if you are considering this at all. If it has Ecotrek, I'd expect alot more discount, but probably would still pass. Where are you going to get parts should something break? You could really be SOL if one of those proprietary circuit boards get fried.

If the van has traditional systems (AGM batteries, etc), then go for it - still get a hefty discount of 35-40% for an orphan. Bear in mind that most folks won't touch them, so their resale value will be spit.

I agree newer Roadtrek/Hymers resale values will drop significantly. But if I owned a model that was more than 5 yrs. old (pre-Etrek), I wouldn't be too concerned. Great West vans and even old Xplorers (both long out of business) are well regarded.
