Don't give them the title I don't know what state you live in but where I live a dealer cannot sell a car truck rv without a title or copy on hand unless it's a dealer auction check with your state for the laws they should have waited I garantee you they made a profit unless you benefit from that part of the sale don't do it once you sign title over your at there mercy... Even when your new rv comes your on there terms I have been on both sides of the fence dealer and buyer I wouldn't do anything until they have your new unit on there lot. If there not ok with that make them give you a check for what they allowed you on trade and walk you will get a better deal with the cash anyway.......

I had a similar problem when purchasing a truck about 15 years ago. I traded in my old truck on a new one. Old truck and title were given to dealer and I took possession of new truck with signed contract including financing arranged through dealer. A few days later, dealer called and said down payment had changed from $50.00 to $500, but they knocked off a 0.5% on interest. Worked out OK, so I agreed, but nothing in writing. A few days later, dealer called again and said down payment was now $5000.00 and no change in interest !! I told them that was BS and would just go with the original deal and the only one that was in writing. Dealer said they couldn't do that. I showed up at the dealership, turned in the keys to the new truck and said I wanted my old one back since they couldn't honor the signed contract. They almost left brown stains in their chairs. They had already sold my old truck. I told them it was no big deal and I'd just call my lawyer for a ride home from the dealership and they were not to contact me in any way and all future communication would be through my attorney. I left driving my new truck on the original deal (the one they said couldn't be done).

As a side note, that dealer went bankrupt about a year later. Owner started a new dealership and it went belly up in about three years. Haven't heard anything else about the owner since. I have heard many horror stories about that dealership since my dealings with them, including people calling the police on the dealer when they would take a car into the service area to get it inspected for trade allowance and then refuse to return the customer's vehicle to them. I've heard that story from several police officers that answered the calls and from several would be customers (most who didn't know each other), so I consider that to be a reliable story about that dealer's practices!!

After that experience, all items relating to the deal are done before they get my vehicle and I leave with the new one. None of this stuff about take the new one home and we'll finish tomorrow . . .

It all depends on the integrity of the person or institution you're dealing with.

I did the same thing and met my trade in driving down the road one day. Since I still had the title, I called the dealer and asked if someone was interested in it and they told me they had sold it 2 weeks prior. I gave them the title a couple of weeks later, still months before my new one arrived. I guess that if I trusted them enough to write that big of a check, I trusted them to deliver what they promised. Might have been naive on my part but it all worked out in the long run.
