We've took a severe loss on "lessons learned". Lost probably around $20k a pop on the few motorhomes. Not so bad on the towables. Some were only a year old. We always traded until recently, where we used PPL Motorhomes in Sugarland, Tx. Trade Value at most dealers on our last Cedar Creek was $30k. It sold for around $42k at PPL, less the 10% they get out of the consignment. It was worth it to me as I banked a LOT more, and didn't have to do anything but drop it off.


I guess all depends on what you want, when you want, and how bad you want it.

In Texas we gets a tax credit on trade value so that is a saving of around $1250 on a $20k trade. So if your getting $18,500 trade but can get $20,000 of street....might as well trade as will come out the same.

We traded a two year old KZ trailer when we bought our Jayco. We got $13,500 for the trade. If we had tried to sell it ourselves, we may have gotten $15,000 or $16,000, but there's no telling how long we would have had to sit on it. The dealer told us they would put on the lot at $14,900 and would be happy to get the trade value back. I think they sat on it for about 3 months.

What Texas High Sheriff says is true. You save the sales tax on the value of the trade-in when you trade. This is true for RVs and cars alike. The sales tax rate for vehicles (and RVs) in Texas is (I think) 6.25%.

Yup, 6.25%. That tax is a definite consideration here when you're thinking about selling or trading. I'm going through the same decision matrix with my truck (or at least I was, decided not to pull the trigger this year, maybe next).

I paid $11,500 for a year old 26BH which had virtually no wear on it. Traded it in at the same dealer (small family owned) for $10,000 and paid about $29,000 for our 27DSRL new.

The loan on the 26BH had been paid off in 18 months. We financed 19k and that loan will be paid off 12 months from now or in a total of 30 months. Interest rate was 2.99%

Not a follower of Dave Ramsey, but am aware of him believe that he has the right ideas concerning handling of debt, although financing at sub 3% is basically using other peoples money to purchase items such as trucks and trailers, since I can obtain a higher rate of interest rate on my investments.

We had a 2008 197 that we bought used in 2011. It was as new, and had hardly been used. In 2012, we traded it in for a new 197 with a slide. We paid $10,000 to boot. We maybe took a bit of a beating, but we are very happy with the extra room and much, much better floor plan.
