    My curiosity only! What did a 1978 H30C sell for when it was brand spanking new? I’ve seen the brochure as a family RV and could have been sucked in if the price was right in yesteryear dollars. Although, I would have been 21 and near the “needs food stamps” qualification.

    I'd guess $9999

    My father bought a dealer demo h30 fully equipped and I believe he paid about $19,500 as the first owner.

    Thanks, but that seems a little too low. That amount is close to what they sell for in today’s dollars after 41 years of service in decent condition.

    More what?

    That’s a price I can believe in 1978. Any economists out there that can calculate what the future worth of $19,500 in 1978 would be in todays market? Again this is just a curiosity for me!

    Anyone with a computer and has access to the internet.
    1978 = $19,500
    2019 = $76,026.67

    Seems plausible.

    Wow, and that’s just from inflation. I’m impressed, thanks for clueing me in on that link.

    Finally, a drop-in replacement for the in-deck solar panel on Hunters built from the early 90s through the mid-2000s. Improved for longer life and greater output.
