Keep in mind 2 of my children are under 3 years old.



So what kind of TV do you propose?

Thinking long term and future forward? Three words: Full size truck.

I would think that, but my kids ages range from 16, 13, 3 and 1. Youngest 2 are maybe 60lbs combined. My teen son has started working part time, off to university before I know it and my 13 year old daughter has started to scale down the camping trips with us (goes to her dads when we go). So realistically....a year or two more, I wouldn't have a full crew at all times.

Full size truck? Suburban isn't considered full size? Thing is HUGE LOL

Suburban is too big, as in heavy. You loose so much tow capacity.

Also. I'm in the same boat as you. Sort of. We own an SUV and bought a X23B because of two capacity. It only took a couple of hauls to have us decide that we need to upgrade our TV. We are now shopping for a truck.

The wife is like: Great, we could've bought a bigger trailer.

I'm like: Why? This one is fine.

Ohhh ic ic! Makes sense! Truck shopping is hard. I like one, it's too expensive, real pig on gas, won't pull or won't fit all my kids. Just one thing after another o.O Suburban is 7200lbs!

The dealer is always going to low ball you on the price. He has to turn around and sell it at enough of a mark up so they can make some money also. Also the same new unit on the lot could be marked up enough that they can come way down on that price also which would make someone want to buy the new unit instead of the same used unit. You can look online and see what like units are selling for and then place an ad for your unit at a comparable price. I have never had a problem selling my used well maintained units at several thousand dollars more than the dealer was offering me. Your unit is actually worth what a buyer is willing to pay you for it.

I think before the TV debate started there was question on resale/trade-in value. :-)

We recently bought a 2014 28DSBH and when I talked trade-in of our 2008 19H, the salesman brought out a "black book", which is used for wholesale values. Remember that the dealer has to sell it, so they would expect to pay wholesale.

The wholesale value was $5500, so he highly recommended that we sell privately and ask a reasonable price. We ended up selling it for $10,500 on Kijijii in about 3 days.

My advice: sell it privately and don't try to get all your money back that you paid when you bought it new ;-)

Think of the new trailer that you'll be getting!
