View Full Version : Does $9500 for a 94 3326king sound good

My wife and I will be 1st time RVrs and we want to go full time rightoff. We would stay in one location for 3 days to 6 weeks. We would pull 500 to 1500 miles per trip. I found a 1994 3326king, asking price $9500. I've seen pictures, looks good, "hardly used" "like new". Big drawback it's 2000 mile trip one way to look at, or buy.

P.S. I am so glad I found this site it looks like a lot of good information!

Check for "soft spots" on the top sections, and check for "soft" wood in the pocket stop areas - the places where the lift bars go in to the top section. You'll have to reach your finger in (carefully) and you should be able to feel wood. If that wood is soft, proceed with caution. Try to have the trailer inspected by someone who's familiar with the uniqueness of a Trailmanor. You might even want to contact the factory and ask for tips on what to look for. They've always been EXTREMELY helpful.

Hope you enjoy the TM if you purchase it. We've owned a TM since 1991 (we're on our second - a 2000) & have been VERY happy with them.

Thanks for the heads up on the soft spots. I have 2 disadvantages. (1) I know very little about any TT much less about TM. (2) This TM is 2000 miles from my house. I'm in NM TM is in CT.

Thanks for the NADA site!! With NO adds this TM books at approx $8500 my Credit union booked it @ around $10246 with adds, but I think he may have (not understanding the diff between standard and opptional) booked it high.

Donde1, There is a lot of confusion about the TM. It is relatively new to the public as they are beginning to find out about it now. Originally, any new idea was a an option to be paid for separately. Now they are included by the dealer that they seem to be included in the for sale price. This adds to the confusion, but the NADA site has provisions for including these features as options. You should know the details of the TM, such as the size of the furnace and air conditioner, etc. in order more precisely use the NADA site. With all these options included now by the factory (plus there are more options available from the factory than you can shake a stick at) maybe this is why the TM seems to be more expensive than other Rvs. While you may save a bit of money by buying from an owner, buying from a dealer may have some support in time of need from the dealers. Most owners of TMs are so choice of their TM that they take relatively good care of them. There are those who like to "off road" their TMs which cause them to be not in as good a condition. You probably have scanned the messages in this site and realize the points to examine on a used one. You will also note, that there doesn't seem to be any weakness that is common with all TMs. Just as with any vehicle, there will be some depreciation with use. Depending on its use, and how it is maintained, a weaker point may appear.
