not selling it on here. So don't think I'm breaking any rules.

Ok looked it up on NADA It of course gives Low retail, And Average retail. Looks like it's worth more than I thought. However, I'm wondering, IF I should try for Average Retail.

The TT is in great shape, and we are not selling because we don't like it. We do. It's perfect for the 2 of us. Just not perfect for the other 7 people who tend to follow it around.

Yeah, I know. they can buy their own. but we really love having the GBs with us, and well. We have to take their parents as well. Kind of a package deal.

TT is in great shape, and after I wax it this spring. Will look as good as any on any one's RV dealer lot. Everything works, and it does not leak. Has no fabric, or floor stains. Decals still have full color. Inside stove has barely been used.

Looking at bunkhouses. found one, actually 4.

What y'all think.

I tried to trade my TT and was quoted 15% below the lowest NADA value. Needless to say we still own the TT. We would love to trade for a toy hauler but can't accept such a low trade in.

I would use RV trader to find your trailer, or similar to determine what they are asking for it.

I would add at least 2000 above high book.
We were looking at used tt 2 years ago and everything was above book. That is until we found our trailer. You can always come down a little.
Check out RV Trader and some of the TT ads. I think a good used Tt is still in demand.

PS Don't ask dealers what yours is worth, ask them what they would sell one like it for.

you should ask what you think it is worth and then be ready to take a lower offer. GOOD LUCK!!

You have to figure out what your final bottom line. What you will actually sell it for. Then add several thousand dollars to that figure. That's what you would advertise it for.

If it were me, I'd add several thousand to the top retail number given by NADA. Then you have room to come down some and still be above what you will sell it for.

I'd do it like the dealers do it. Price it high and know ahead of time what your true bottom line is and fight hard to keep from going that low. Ultimately it probably just depends on how quickly you want to move it.

IF I add any to the average resale. The price would be what I paid for it new. And to be honest. It's nice, but it ain't new. I'm thinkin a little over low retail might do it.

Unfortunately, Nada doesn't always reflect actual market value which is soft right now. It's a buyers market but not if your trading anything in. It just poses more inventory for them to get rid of.
I had great success in Tex with a large chain store that I won't mention, where I was quite satisfied at both ends. Finding a dealer that's motivated is the challenge. I guess part of it is their individual overhead which is as different as their are rv models to chose from.
So shop around and don't feel like you have to take the first deal that comes around.
