Trading up

Has anyone ever traded up on a camper after purchasing one and wasn't happy with their selection? We are contemplating doing this with our 14 Salem DBUD after we traded for it in Feb of this year. Sometimes we feel this one just isn't it for us

I figure if you are paying for it you should have what you like. Why pay for something that does not make you happy.

X2

I am curious so can I ask what is it about it that's not working for you and how times have you used it?

We just did that exact thing this past July. We traded in a 2013 Springdale TT on a 2015 wildcat 5ver. They try to beat you to death on your trade in but after getting up and walking out 3 times we were able to get the price way down on the wildcat which was about break even on money. Get what you want and enjoy.

Do it, we mostly all did it one time or another. Next thing you know you will be trading up to a motorhome. Sounds far fetched now, but I never thought I would own one.

Trading up on campers is the same as trading up on our vehicles...got to enjoy what you own if you're gonna use it...the consequence of trading up too early is you'll take a financial beating to do so

I'm with you on the whole trade in thing. I'm on my 5th vehicle in 5 years. Went through 4 TTs that I bought new every single year till this year I landed in a Class A. Get what you want and don't worry about it. Really happy now with this new rig.

When I traded my 3 month old fiver in on my present motorhome the dealer gave me exactly what I paid for the fiver in trade value. And also dropped 28% on the price of the coach.

It took over 3 months to finalize my deal. Just letting you know because it is doable. You just have to walk away from the dealer a few times to get them wanting to make a deal that you like.
