Question 2011 Swift Moselle

Hi!

Hope you all are in festive spirits

We are considering buying Brand New 2011 swift moselle 2 bed,with french doors and a small decking to fit at the side door, he wants 36,000GBP for the van and 800 for the decking, we was wondering if that was a deal to go with or is there any negotiation in that deal, it will not include 2013 site fees or insurance

we await your comments

thanks in advance

Hi, treetops should see this when he logs on and advise.
My only point would be the year... We are almost into 2013, that HAS to be a great point for negotiation - imagine trying he/you try to sell it in the new year, it would appear even older!

Of course it also depends on many other factors, have you read http://www.gostatic.co.uk/showthread.php?t=4201? There is loads of info to help you in that thread, also links at the bottom to things you may not have even thought of

If you can afford it comfortably I don't see why not. I am biased and would always look at nearly new (up to 3 years old) to try and miss out on some of the depreciation. However if nobody bought a new van there wouldn't be any nearly new ones Though 2011 model probably released/ manufactured late 2010 although it may never of been used/owned.

It maybe a 'new' van but the model is 2 yrs old so it will have a used value as well

Try to find out what a 2013 model Moselle will cost, but remember, you have to add on delivery and siting..........being a 2 yr old model I would expect a significant saving on buying a 2013 model because when/if you ever sell it, it will always be worth less than a 2013 model.

Also what type of decking and what size ? as 800 is very cheap also I think you should try for your first seasons site fees thrown in as for a 2011 it is not all that cheap.Thats my opinion.
