nada guides for used hybrids

I am considering up gradeing from a jayco pup to a jayco hybrid. I have three floor plans in mind, kiwi 21c or 23b and jay feather 19h or 23b. What I would like to know is why the asking price of a kiwi htt is so much higher than the nada guides price. I have found private party sellers double the nada guides and dealers three times the nada prices. I have found this to be true also with the jay feathers. I have found a 2007 19h and 2008 23b at nada prices as well as other later htts. These high prices seam to be happening on 2006 and older htts. I would like to hear from someone because I plan on looking at a 2001 kiwi 23b on Friday morning with an asking price of 6,300.00 and a nada guide price of 4,800.00. I think the asking price is to high for an 11 year old htt. To give it credit the htt is located in the southwest and from the pictures lookes to be in good shape and well maintained with new tires, battery and new 8 gal. propain tanks.
Thanks for your help.

I've never paid over NADA prices. I usually settle in between trade-in value and Private party figures.
One thing people do get off some on the NADA pricing is not having all the options valued correctly, but that wouldn't account for 2X, 3X pricing.
The trailer I just bought, there was only 2 for sale withing 400 miles of me used.
I still got it for 1000 less than NADA.
I would just wait until I find the right deal. Patience is the only way to get a good value.
If you rush into a deal, you'll get burnt every time and you'll regret it every time you look at your trailer.

Just my $.02

I look at NADA pricing as a reference point, in the end it all boils down to what the HTT is worth to you. A lot of variables can influence the actual value of a used product.

I sold a pop up last year, it was a 1998 and sold it for 3 times the NADA value. I put it on the market on saturday morning a couple looked at is Sunday morning an bought it. It was in great condition, the couple said they looked at several trailers and none of them came close to the condition of mine. They were happy to pay above NADA.....Ibought a new trailer from a dealer and they were willing to give me 2 times the value of the NADA retail price........you get what you pay for!

Thanks fellow campers for all your information this helps me a lot on making a decision on what to purchase and at what price. Hopefully the right htt will come along at the right price.

NADA has prices for trade in, buying and selling cars, campers, etc.
