The RV business is a lot like the car business and a lot different at the same time. A lot of times, the dealers for both make more on clean used units than they make on new ones. I just traded... but the best trade I could get for my 2012 Surveyor SV-264 was $9,000-. I may be crazy, but I ain't stooopid... So I sold it. I'll brag a bit and tell you that it was very clean, and absolutely everything worked. It's been in covered storage so it's not faded out. I got $15,000- for it. I avoided losing $6,000- and that's substantial... Had I sold it earlier in the year when RV sales are better, I probably could have gotten a thousand more. As much as these things cost, if you cleaned it up and made sure all is good, you might get $20,000 or more. I sold mine on RV Trader, and it sold in about a week. If I'd traded it off, the dealer would have put some worthless warranty on it and doubled his money.
