Considering used 2014 Seneca TS

Hi All
I am considering a 2014 Seneca TS with 8000 miles. The dealer claims it was returned for a bunk unit. The dealer starting price is 157,000. I feel this is a little high but do not have good feel for the value. Any thoughts would be helpful?

The other factors to consider
1) no factory warranty from Jayco.
2) it's been on the lot since December 2014( that's when I first saw it )

I'd do a little shopping and see what kind of price you can get on a new 2015 or 16 at a different dealer and then you would have some ammo.

I agree with Grumpy - shop around as that price is too high. We picked up a 2015 FK in November with 5500 miles on it for $149k. The original owner of ours took it for a long trip and decided to trade it for a Newmar Class A.

I have not made a formal offer where do you think I should start? My thoughts are in the mid $120,000.

There are a good number of used Senecas on the market -I would recommend looking at what others are listed at for comparison. I did a quick search on RV Trader, and 2014's are listed for $150k - $170k. I think we really lucked out on ours...

After looking a other 2014 models it looks like a starting offer of $140,000 would be a start. I think it will end up at $150,000 ish.

Price for a new 2015 should be in the low $160's. Take off another 10% for additional year's depreciation and you are in mid $140's.

I have a deposit hold on it now. I came to the table with my own finanancing and 20% down. I hope we can settle on the value of both my trade and the value of the Seneca. I will post up the results
