I have to agree with Dave_Monica. If you don't exactly like camping, what makes you think you're going to like it in a used, antiquated camper that isn't even manufactured anymore (read: replacement parts?). If you don't like camping, why not just sell it outright? I'm confused as well. This was an awful large purchase to make with such uncertainty.

In my opinion, if you're waffling on the whole idea of camping with your 2010 Wildcat, your opinion of camping certainly won't improve with the 2004 Mallard.

Sorry if I hadn't been very clear - I was wondering if we traded in for a smaller model which was also cheaper - whether we would be able to sell it any easier?

I have posted previously that our family circumstances which had prompted the Wildwood purchase have unfortunately changed. I'm not asking for criticism, just advice.

We don't do much camping, just occasional weekends away (which wasn't the initial plan), and dont like having so much money tied up in something which we sadly can't use as we had hoped.

That info wasn't in this post. Sorry you're not able to use it as much as you planned. I still think selling it outright would be the better idea and then buying a smaller, newer camper. Good luck.

I don't believe that selling the older, smaller camper would be easier, in fact I believe that it would be harder to sell. Always more demand for a late model camper.

OK, that's what I needed to know... being fairly new to the camping scene, we were unsure as to the sellability of the older camper!

Thanks

If you don't like all that is involved with a 2010 TT, buying a used, older model is going to give you less than a favorable impression of camping. I spent 20+ years in a variety of tents and sleeping arraignments from the ground to air mattresses to cots. Moved to a popup for 12 years and, now, own a hybrid. I sold the popup for the top price of the NADA listing. I sold it to the first buyer. Never sold anything on Craig's List and was quite pleased with the sale. BUT, we kept the popup in great shape. Beware of older campers (wait, that's me)...older travel trailers. Not everyone treats them well, especially, if they were not too into camping, either. Good luck.
