Yeah, 8% Provincial, 5% Federal, rolled into one 13% rate called HST.

It used to be worse, Federal was once 7%, so we were at 15%.

We just went through this with our old tt. We had dealerships offer us really low ball figures. One even said they would come up to what we owed but they would just raise the price of the trailer they were selling to cover the difference. Wth? Nope walked away there. We finally decided private sale was best. We put it on craigslist for a little over what we wanted for our bottom line. It was on capitalist for maybe 2 or 3 weeks. I had 2 people look at it. The first really liked it but chose to go with a quad bunk over my 2 bunks. Can't argue floor plan with the buyer. Second looker bought it. They paid a fair price for it and $5-6k more than the dealerships were offering (but close to what the used ones were going for on rv trader.com and similar to comps on local craigslist) . The key was to meet them at their bank. Their bank gave us the certified check for the tt... well ok, they wired money to our lien holder and fabrics a cashier's check for the rest. We made enough for a reasonable down payment on the new fiver so we were happy. The buyers were happy to get a well maintained tt and owners that cared enough to not only give them a pdi but help them set up the wdh (our old wdh was included in the deal) and put thee brake controller in their tv and help set it. Yup, they did not understand a brake controller was necessary until we were done with them.

Thanks for replies. Since we aren't in that big of a rush to by new, I'll just keep it on craigslist.

Definetly sell privately, just sold ours and pocketed $4500 more than if we did a trade in on another unit
We never trade in campers as you always will be on the losing end of that equation!

Nova Scotia it is 15% sales tax. Looking right now dealer has no issue cutting a check for the 30k offered but I pay the full price of the trailer plus 15% tax. By working it into the trade I save $4500 in tax.
