What would you do?

Hi all - We are trying to sell our 2010 Wildwood T25KS after deciding it was too big for us. We are not entirely sure about camping to be honest - and when we got a reply offering a swap we thought we'd take a look, this is smaller (which I'm happier about) but quite a bit older, and although not in 'showroom' condition - maybe we could free up some cash at least.

The swap is for a Fleetwood Mallard 2004, 21ft.

We don't know much about any campers - this doesn't look anywhere near the quality of our current one, but then again it's smaller and older, so if we want to release some equity, I guess there's going to be a compromise!

I'm not sure how much the Mallard would be worth, but we thought around 7k Canadian. Ours cost us 19k plus 2k for solar - would a trade in against ours plus 10k sound reasonable? Or should we steer clear of the deal?

If we find we don't like camping - would this be easier to sell, being priced in a more affordable range than the one we have?

Or should we continue advertising? We were offered 15k cash but felt this was too low.

Any advice from all you seasoned campers would be much appreciated.

Sorry it's such a long post!

Probably a flash site as I can't get it to load on my iPad

Will have to get a buddy to look at it for me, thanks for the link though.

Mallard, which was part of Fleetwood (made four line of 5th wheels if I remember correctly; Terry, Puma, Terry (which I had), and one other one which I can't think of right now) stopped making trailers last year or so. User rating was so so, but the ten years I had mine, I had less problems than the 17 months I have had the Flagstaff. Wayne

your welcome I think you would be better informed at least a little by checking some kind of guide .

my last tt I traded was nada at about 11,000.00 they offered 9,500.00 for trade I was happy with that .
I didn't have to deal with people trying to haggle me down from 11,000.00
selling it on my own .

Yes that is a great guide (Hubby just loaded on his laptop)

I wonder if there is a Canadian equivalent site?

I got to say that I'm a little confused with your situation.

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.
