Guess that depends...how big is the hit and do you want to trade up bad enough to take it? Older popups that are in good shape are easy to sell for a decent price from what I've seen. On a newer one, you are definetly going to take a hit for depreciation.

No harm in testing the waters - try Craigs list and see what happens, and/or see what the dealer would offer. Its getting toward the later part of the season, which might make a private sale harder but with a dealer it might be a wash or help you a little if you find a 2013 that they don't want to own all winter.

No cost to shop for some numbers, although that just going to look thing has a way being expensive sometimes

I just searched Craigslist in my area for "popup camper" and there are 100 listings currently. Not sure if that is a lot compared to the spring or not. I'd say try it on CL at your price and see what you get now rather than wait.

One thought is that I think spring vs fall sales can depend somewhat on the locale and weather. In the north here in Wisconsin, buyers (new or used) seem to get the itch in the spring and the RV shows start in January/February (you'd figure that they would know the best time of year to entice crowds to their events). Also, anyone of us with kids know that the summer is pretty much it for any significant camping because they're out of school so people seem a bit more anxious to buy right before summer.

But, friends of mine in FL and TX with no kids avoid the heat and crowds of summer camping. They prefer the fall, winter and spring so there might be some differences depending where you live.

We have a saying for that around here - there are 2 seasons: winter and 4th of July

Not sure that works in Canada, but I think Triguy made some good points. In a northern climate spring is the busy season for sales, but why not test the water now with an add? Might find the right buyer looking to upgrade. If you don't get what you want, wait. When word got out we bought a new camper, two people called us about buying our popup before we even put it up for sale. There was snow on the ground and we figured it wasn't a good time. Got full price in cash and never even had a chance to get it prepped and setup to take pictures for an add...

I worry about listing it now and then plans fall through and we can't get the new one we will be out a sweet pop up that are hard to find, I will play it safe and sell in the spring or at least list after the RV show when we hope to order.

Lots of good info here.
