When you're out searching for that Toyota motorhome...'s more important to be right about the motorhome than being right about the price. If you've been on the hunt you know that you run yourself (and your significant other) ragged finding the coach of your dream...especially if you're not in a highly populated area where you can look at 3 or 4 within an hour's driving time. If you've done some homework and gotten a feeling for the basic things you require in your future motorhome, and you actually find yourself standing in front of a really correct coach that gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling...don't get too wound up on "comps" or stories or prices you've seen online because you probably haven't seen those motorhomes or driven them or smelled them so comparing them doesn't really serve you here. I've bought near identical motorhomes at a $7000 price difference because they all had the same irreplaceable value that all nice Toyota coaches was just the sellers discretion that dictated the price. Did 2 very similar Toyota MH's go through Ebay last month with one bringing $22000 and the other sold with a "Buy It Now" of $11000? Absolutely. Do we really care what someone else paid for their motorhome if we're only going to buy one Toyota love and cherish and fill all the cubby holes with our favorite stuff and great books and surf wax and compass and maps to places we've never even heard of...and take (with confidence) on great adventures while listening to Jackson Browne and be warm and cozy inside it when winds howl?...Do we really care what someone else paid? Absolutely not...not even a little.
