Oregon to Michigan to Montana and back to Oregon for a truck and TT. I will be selling this setup soon as I only needed it during Covid. Im certain to make a decent profit.

Back in 2005 a summer of a disastrous tent camping experience we bought a pop up 8 box. Went to Montana with it and that was an adventure. Then we sold it privately 2 years later for a bigger pop up with a lot of electrical issues and 2 years later sold that at a dealership for what we paid for 2 years earlier. Weird. Bought a travel trailer and realized it was too small for what we needed did not get the price we wanted but went ahead and bought a second travel trailer with bunks. Great trip out west with it. Now? Wish I could go back to the small trailer. I am the only one who lives out it except for when the family comes visiting. So who knows. My mother was the one who loved camping. Now that she is gone I am going to do maybe another 10 year last hurrah sell and settle down with 10 dogs in my backyard. I loved it but my daughter is like ok with it. So I guess end of an era with mother daughter granddaughter camping trips. Good luck.

I'm rushing to get my '07 Trailmanor on the market before interest rates put the skids on everything. As it stands it's worth more than I paid for it in 2018, hope that holds up.

Some of you folks are talking about getting what you paid for your older units. Here in Calif i'm seeing tons of RV's on the used market and they are not marked even close to what they sold for new. Either this is a regional issue or some of you are blowing smoke bombs. I was at an RV show last weekend and the dealers were willing to wheel and deal a lot lower than when i purchased my 2019. I also notice the newer units are made with cheaper materials and overall quality is not what they used to be.

I bought mine used in 2018 and book on it now is almost 20% more than I paid then. How long this market will last however is who knows.
