Hi Golden Mom,
I did an MSN search and did not find a "KellyBlueBook.com" for RVs, but there were a lot of sites with good info. Unfortunately, they all want you to buy a Blue Book from them. But still, you can check them out.
Most dealers I've seen pull out the NADA book when determining value. The NADA has a section for campers, based on your zip code. Note, the Outbacks are not listed under Keystone yet, go to O instead and it will show up under Outback by Lite-Way.
One thing I'd suggest is to get a holding deposit when you get an offer, something that they forfeit if the loan doesn't go through. It doesn't need to be huge, but $100 encourages people to get some level of pre-approval. When we sold our Kiwi I was going to ask for one, but they were working with my old college Credit Union so I called back and made sure they were 100% approved and asked for a letter from them, felt much better with that.
Sorry the deal fell through, but its camping season so I'm sure you'll find a buyer very soon!
Sold my 2002 Splash, to help pay for the new Outback, used NADA Guide to set price, the dealer offered me 6,500 as a trade-in but sold it myself for 10. NADA said the average retail for my trailer was 11,040. So I think that the NADA provides a reasonable guideline for what to charge and what to pay. Note: Sold Splash to a nice single mom who wanted to start camping with her son. It was a good deal for both of us.
