RV sales have been improving all year, but slowly, and many dealers are offering big discounts to get the larger RVs moving off their lots again, according to a Los Angeles Times article, “Call of the road, bargains beckon RV buyers.”
Robert and Barbara Nicolson, retired supermarket employees from Sedona, Ariz., recently traded in their 2006 motor home for a new Tiffin Allegro Bus that lists for $355,000. Amenities include a dishwasher, washer and dryer, full-size refrigerator and 11/2 bathrooms.
“How nice is it? Well, I’m having a hard time convincing my wife that it’s time to go home,” quipped Robert Nicolson from a Petaluma, Calif., campground.
