Trade In

Hi, Has anyone ever traded a Motorhome for a Park Model?

Is it even possible? I have a 37' 08 motorhome with 3 slides but I'm
having a hard time selling it in this weak market. I even willing to take about a $20,000.00 hit on it, but no one is buying.
I'll take any good advice. Heck, I'll even take bad advice and sort it out.

Thank You
Joe in jersey

Down in Florida I saw MH's and trailers at car dealerships. Here in Ohio I see an old corvette at an RV dealership. You should not have a problem trading unless your MH is worth more than the park model. I do not think they like giving cash out. If would be easy if the park model cost more than the MH is worth.

2008 MH's are nice. What MH do you have?

Thanks for your reply. I have 2008 Georgetown XL 378, low mileage, under 12,000
I'd rather sell it if I could, but if push comes to shove I'll trade it for a Park Model
if I can. I like to get about $70 k for it. Whats a good park model go for?

Depends on whether the site comes with the park model or not.

Offhand I would say the range is $20k-$100k+ with the typical prices in the $38k-$60k arena. That's for the trailer without a site or delivery to a site.

Whether a park model dealer will take a trade-in will depend on what he thinks he can re-sell from his lot - if he even has a lot. Often park models are ordered from the factory and the dealer is more of a broker, but he may have a sales lot for other RVs or vehicles.

Here is one place that sells them and posts prices online.
Inventory for Sale : Park Trailers : Kropf : Log Cabin : Forest River : Used Park Models : Suncoast Trailer Sales
