Trade or sell?

I have a 83 Pace Arrow, that I paid 5K for and then spend more that another 5K to refurbished [not counting labor] it to make it conformable for my wife, now since she died in May I don't need and or want anything this large and was thinking about getting a Class C, now that too must wait being my Rochester carburetor repaired due ot it is now bleeding down and hard to start without priming it, so that need to be repaired first so I need to take it to the shop, so I guess my question is being most of you have much more experienced than I do, would it be easier and or better trying to sell the class A and then find a good use class C, or and even trade for a class C?

Just thinking out loud make of it what you will.

Trading is probably easier, no advertising, no looky lous, or cost to you.

Given todays market I think (I do not know for sure) that a dealer might be in the mood to make a pretty good deal.

Personally if I had a unit that was giving me some trouble I would not want to sell to an individual but would trade to a dealer who might then have an obligation to fix everything for a prospective buyer. Or sell as is either way you do not have to represent the vehicle to anyone. The dealer might (I say might) stand for repairs to a prospective buyer as part of the deal.

Generally speaking you can get more selling by yourself but in this case maybe/probably not.

Not so sure you will get your money back either way.

Very good question

first my condolences for the loss of your wife; such a loss is no small matter and my heart goes out to you.

This is a really good question

I am in a similar situation I have a 97 Allegro 28' it is in fair shape. Sometimes it is to big for one person and sometimes it isn't. I got it with twin beds because my sister wanted to travel with me but now she has her own rig.

I would rather have the queen bed than the twin and to convert to a queen in this rig would be a nightmare as the fresh water tank is under the street-side bunk. So, do I trade or sell? Do I get another Class A or a class C? Sometimes when I think about it my head spins. So I am eagerly awaiting the discussion on this question.

feedback

Thanks, I have also considered a much smaller class A also mine is 30 feet and I don't need more than 20ft, now.
