ughhhh.......we went through this.....we bought a trailer tow, traded that in on a fifth wheel, then traded that in on a diesel pusher(DP)....all of them new.....all within a 6 month period. We took a big hit...wish I would have started with the DP, which is where I think we all want to be if we can afford it.....the problem is we could not afford it, but now that we have it, know its the only way to RV...we love it and make the $$$ work......

You will definitely take a hit, but you have to enjoy the unit, whatever it is....otherwise, what is the point?

That's our same deal gmcnitt, but all we really want is a 5er. Just trying to decide if the hit will be worth it.

What you paid will have no bearing on trade in value...basically if you look up low retail price on blue book, take an additional 25% off that price and that'll be your Dealer's trade in offer or close to it...it won't be pretty!

Part of the significant depreciation is the fact that all warranties are not transferable. They are only valid for the original purchaser. This forces preowned RV's down in price next to a similar year new one. Even if you purchased and never drove it off the lot

Hmmm. Ok. Good to know. We might have to just suck it up and go for it after the furnace and roof get repaired.

Don't be in a hurry. Sell your TT privately and then go buy the 5er with the extra cash in hand.
