Sell it outright, for way more many than they'll give you for a trade.

The ONLY reason I have my HTT, is because I bought it from a generous friend.
He paid $14k for it new(2012 17Z), and 2 years later, the same dealer offered him only $7k on a trade.

I usually trade cars and sell the trailers because the trade in on cars is usually close to what I could get on a private sale with the sales tax savings figured in.

Pricing is key and you should be somewhere in between a dealer pricing for your unit and trade in if you want to unload it. Doing this has yielded quick results for me. If you are going to try and get everything you owe out if it and that is more than or equal to dealer pricing then you will not sell it. I agree NADA is not a great tool, but you should look at it. Your main issue is the year of the unit. At only 2 years old or less it's going to hurt pricing as this usually only settles out after 4-5 years with depreciation being the most in the first few years. Since you know the trade in value already, you know the bottom price.

Get it clean and spotless. Throw in some goodies that might be a bonus to a new buyer and take lots of pictures with details. The more details the better a buyer feels about the unit I think.

Craigslist and Ebay classifieds have yielded the best results for me. The paid listings always seem to be a bust for me. Could be my area though.

As far as title goes, the letter of satisfaction can take up to 10 business days to achieve as the titles are just signed over in NYS. The lien is what you need to clear and agree that not all buyers are willing to work with you on that especially if that buyer is out of state.

Good luck!

Excellent advise from 3'senough-

I'm in the process of trading in my Sunnybrook (no lien) in for a new 38FDDS I have on order. I considered listing it and selling it myself, but I really don't have the time or initiative to sell it on my own. Especially this time of year up in New England. I realize I could have made out better selling it myself, but the trailer is 130 miles from my house and I'm really not interested in running down the Cape every weekend in the winter to appease tire kickers, I'm so busy at work that I really can't deal with it right now, so I decided to just trade it in.
It is what it is.

That is basically what we did on our last one. I was not up to the hassle of showing and dealing with the public and wanted to get it over with. Our dealer offered me about $1500. less than I thought I could sell it for and I figured my time was worth that.

Jloco, my in-laws have a place in Mashpee. We are considering cross country road tripping. Any suggestions on Cape Rv spots?

Just traded in my X23F

I was considering trying to sell my trailer private party in the spring but decided to take a trip to the dealer instead. They gave me a very good price on the trade in (approximately 1500 less than i could of possibly sold it for private party) and i got a good deal on the unit I purchased. The trade in was financed but I didn't owe a lot on it so it made sense in my particular situation.
I think it all boils down to personal preference, personally i traded in to avoid having to deal with tire kickers, hagglers and such.

Hi Sumerbrez,

Sorry I'm just seeing this. There are a lot of campgrounds on cape cod. Mashpee is located closer to the bridge (mainland) and there are plenty of campgrounds in the Mashpee area.

IMO, the further east you go the better. Camping near the national sea shore (Truro/Wellfleet area) is beautiful! The coastline is pristine in that area. It is also close to Provincetown and many other cool 'old cape' towns.

My seasonal place is called Shady Knoll campground and is located in Brewster which is on the bay side, right at the elbow of the Cape. We love it there. The same family owns another property in Eastham called Atlantic Oaks. This is located within a half mile of the national sea shore.

If you google 'cape cod campgrounds', you'll see a map of where all the campgrounds are located.

I can't wait till summertime!

Summerbrez,

We traded our X17Z for a new TT last July and got an excellent trade in with none of the bank check "scam" problems that you may run into trying to sell on Craigslist. Also to consider is all of the extra accessories (that came with the purchase of the preowned X17Z) we got to keep for our new TT including the Equalizer WD/AS hitch. In our case that came to over $1000. So we bought the 2012 X17Z used for 11K in 2013 and traded it in last July for 8K plus the 1K+ saved on not replacing the accessories after using the X17Z for almost 20K miles of travel throughout the USA in two summers.
