I'm gonna bet they offer wholesale Dealer price which will be low nada number minus 25% as their offer to buy your unit...

We've had everything from tents to class A rigs since 1969. Class c and class a rigs are convenient to travel in but you must tow a car or something behind it it get around. We didn't and had to rent a car (never again). And their value drops like a rock. And because of their size we had problems getting them serviced plus it can be expensive. 5th wheels are great if you like being a truck driver. We had Montana rigs and they were great when you were set up but after a while packing up and driving them around became very tedious. Plus you need a big truck. We finally decided to go back to a travel trailer. If you like the truck you can change the trailer and if you like the trailer you can change the truck. Plus separately they don't depreciate as much. That is just my opinion and others will have different ones. One other thing we did find is it is a lot harder to sell a class c or class a if you need to. Good luck in your decision and what ever it is may you enjoy the heck out of it.

I own a 2013 Forester 3051S and have seen a few on the market between 69K to 75K. Love my Forester but had several issues to work through on warranty work over the past 6-months. Keep in mind when you are not the original owner that Forest River and other manufactures (like the appliances) will not allow transfer to new owners. Silly I know, but none the less I have encountered this and purchased an extended service plan to cover what the manufactures wouldn't. Ford is real good about making good on the chassis but the coach is all Forest River...

My sisters family spent about the same for their travel trailer and new truck as we did for our 3011 DSF but yeah, a C is much harder to sell until it's older and prices in around the cost of a new trailer. We opted for the C because I didn't need a truck and didn't want to pay the gas to commute in it daily. Ease of travel with the kids, quick setup and the option not to flat tow a vehicle on short trips made the decision easy for us but I know that this C will be with us for a long time and all of that ease of use will cost me more $$$ in the long run. If I had it to do over again though, I would take a harder look at the shorter A's with the drop down bunks. The floor plan is more open, the mileage is about the same and there are fewer seals and seams to leak on the front of the rig. Some believe that a C is safer and easier to drive. While the C is crash tested for the up front riders, the kids are in back so for my family the argument that a C can be more crash worthy is moot. There is the appearance from the cab that the C is smaller and easier to drive but the reality is that the back is just as wide and the mirrors stick out just as far. The C also has a larger turning radius than an A of the same or slightly larger size because A's wheels can turn up to 60 degrees.

Oh, don't forget about insurance on the C as well. Incidentals like that are easy to overlook.

C class is a more Solid design IMO. I've seen MANY A class with stress cracked windshields... Never see that on a C.....

yep I have seen a lot, owning two class A's, 35' gasser and a 40'
Diesel pusher, traded the DP for a 5er (to live in), and are
having a 3011ds built now. Big upside is DW will now drive
the c.......well she thinks she will, only time will tell.

i have had a class A for 15 years ( with a stress cracked windshield) and just moved to a class c. I feel safer in a C. i like we both have doors to jump out. i like it sleeps more. Easier to drive. In the Class A I did not like feeling like if i rear ended someone there was only class and some fiber glass in front of me vs the C full van front end. It is lower (sad face) but not the end of the world. I like the look of an A better. Before we bought the C we did look at some A's again. The drop down bunks on all the ones we looked at, entry level class As, were junk imo. So far a am very glade we bought a C.
