Find a seasonal campground site and park it. Wife can drive you to it? I live in Florida and leave a trailer on site all year for $1700.00. It's a steal at that price. You can find them all over the country for $2000 and up.

Agree with the moving it to a year-round site to enjoy ….. selling it not an option if you are upside down and vol. repo not good thing. Bank/CU will sell it wholesale/below and you are still liable for the difference between selling price and what you owe. Even if you tried to put it on consignment, you still have to come up with a chunk to get it paid off.

I am sorry for the crushing news...

You can always do like the above posters stated, park it full time somewhere and still enjoy it...

Now , IF you need the money, only choice is to dump it and walk away with your tail between your legs... AND hope you don't loose too much

When is someone not upside down with an RV? I'd sell it and get out from under it. Parkinson's is serious, nasty disease and might prevent the use of the parked 5th wheel. I'd find another way to recreate.

So sorry to hear.

That happened to my dad. He put it on consignment because he couldn't show it to sell it himself. It sat in the dealer's lot for a year while he continued to make payments and insurance. During that time, he had several ER visits and money got very tight. He finally decided to let it be repo'd and less than a month later he passed away. It got paid off then.

While you are under on the value, it sounds like you are able to make the payments. If so, then I say sell it now and take the loss. You can always rent a cabin if your wife can still drive. And you won't have to worry about future medical bills, etc., making that financial loss a major complication by waiting to sell.
