I bought 2012 26BH in Oct 2011 for $18,200 out the door. It had every option available at the time w/ 13.5 AC. I added several after markets items; custom welded rear receiver, upgraded power vents, max air vent cover, black tank washer, plus a few others.
- Jan 2014 NADA valued it ~$16k
- Two different Dealers offered trade-in at $10,000 and $10,700 against a 32BHDS that we offered 30% off MSRP.
- Ended up selling it private party off Craigslist for $14,500 after being listed about 30 days. We had several serious lookers, a couple other offers in the $13k range that I didn't accept.
My trailer was impeccable. Stored outside but washed before/after every trip and hand waxed each spring and fall.
Hope this helps.
