Yesterday wife decided time to get looking, for rolling shathouse.
Dropped southeast to Pacific MO
Several dealers along I-44, moved north from there to OFallon MO to head west back towards home. She has not seen many so we did view several models and styles as well makes. All ranges of pricing on new ones, few to any used on the lots, found are wholesaling 90% of trade ins as ‘23 model year units are due to start arriving. 22s may end up wholesaled to clear lots.
Wife liked a couple different ones, she loses track of what looked at gets more confused at every stop so I made notes.
Byerly RV had a nice Rogue, Travers RV had one I preferred was a Torque. Both new both expensive but Travers started discounted pretty quick. Both of those we liked were under 38’. Went to Camping World RV associated to Gander Outdoors(RV company owns Gander), only had XLR series as a toy hauler, not very well appointed for the money asked. Had a flopped sale Fuel unit again right at 38’, wife thought she could like as again price reduction almost immediate as all these were ‘22 models and excess inventory.
She mainly was looking at layouts, materials grades, double duty of garage spaces and associated functions: Generators, many have Solar battery tender systems on inverters for the trailer, most have stopped using the old LP/12v fridges and water heaters opting to demand flow water heat and almost residential appliances.
As got home with model numbers and names started searches for used, not much currently but can see numbers increases as to new ads over the last months.
