When we traded in our Jayco TT, the dealer had me sign an acknowledgement stating i had no knowledge of any roof damage. The roof was fine and never repaired so it wasn't an issue, but I realized i was legally stating I HAD NO KNOWLEDGE and if the dealer could prove otherwise IF there was damage that was concealed, I woulda been screwed.

I don't know how one can prove "your knowledge" unless you would have hade an estimate from someone or an insurance claim stating the damage.

Is this a sDealer that you will be 'working with' in the future? ie. is he the main person that you will be taking your unit to have work done on it? If he is.... he can screw you over royal and 'get his money back' for any future work. If you are close by to his Dealership, sit down and 'talk' to him. He has 'lost' nothing .... he just did not 'gain' as much as he thought that he would have on the resell of your/his unit. If you truly did not know of the 'bad' roof, convey that and let him understand (nicely) that the trade in was 'as is'. He can 'fix' the roof, he just does not want to put out any money to do it. Do not be talked into 'rebating' him, if you are in the right. IF you will Never see this sDealer again... you have no obligation to 'help' him reduce his loss, but know that if there is any warranty work to do.... He can and most likely will make you regret it if you take your unit back to him to work on.
(Do I know this for a 'fact'.... I know human nature.....)
imo.......

If he's like most local dealers, he probably made $5-$10K on the new and planned to make $5K plus on the used. He can repair the roof and still make money. I can guarantee you that if you had bought a used unit from him and signed and come back 4 days later, he'd point out that it was used and sold "as is" and it was now your problem. Caveat emptor.

Well here is the update for today!

The dealer never called. When I looked on their website they listed our current one as sold and the trade in as "pictures coming soon" and that it's available.

I'm sure this isn't over but the fact they didn't even attempt to call today makes me wonder if they knew they didn't have anything to stand on.

They should not have called you in the first place about it. Rest your mind.

Some potential buyer probably pointed out the roof issue as they were checking it out four days after you dropped it off.
