Congratulations on the new TM. Enjoy your camping.

Yes nada or blue book is a funny thing. Since nada is giving you national numbers, it does reflect the value in your state. What we have seen when looking at TM's. Out west the TM demand a higher price then east.

Also, if you have an exceptional condition camper, it will sell for a much higher price. I have even head of dealers giving very good prices for exceptional campers.

I follow a simple rule, never look back after you buy something. You will always second guess yourself and it always seems you will find a better deal.

Thanks Art&Joyce. You're right. My husband says the same thing. I have some issues with money due to growing up fairly poor. My husband is really supportive even though he knows how anxious buying anything make me. He joked that at least at this point we have a house and good running cars and now with the camper it will be many years before we have to shop for or make a big purchase again. That does make me feel a little better!

NADA, Kelley Blue Book, Edmunds are all reflective of a number of variables. Sounds like you did your homework and so understood the market there for TM's. The dealership knew that it was a good TM and felt comfortable turning down your offer. So I don't think you over paid for that unit at that location at that time.
Have fun adopting it to your tastes and what works for you.

Your first weekend in your 2619 will, hopefully, confirm in your mind that you got a far value. Once you have enjoyed yourself, it will be worth it.

We had an old popup that we bought for $1,000. Every time we went camping, my wife told me "this was the best $1,000 we ever spent". Sold the popup and got a 2417, and we are very happy we did. While the popup was "luxury" compared to tent-camping, the TM is a whole lot better than the pup.

Get to know your 2619, relax, enjoy. Congratulations!
