RV’s, such as motor homes, fifth wheels, travel trailers, folding or pop up campers and truck campers are selling slower this year than they did last year. I find myself wondering if I should sell before the market gets any worse. When you put the condition of the economy which really is not as bad as the media makes it sound, in perspective with the pleasure that my family gets out of using our motor home, I have decided that now is not the time for us to sell. With diesel fuel costing over $4.00 per gallon, we will be taking shorter trips this year than in the past, however we can still get away and relax and not spend a fortune.
Since sales are slower than they were last year, we a heading toward the time to buy, if you are in a financial position to make a major investment. The problem is if you have an RV to trade, or sell it will mean that you will probably not get as much for yours as you want, however the one that you are purchasing should more than make up for the difference. If you are moving up, or purchasing a newer one, you should come out ahead. The market is just slower than it was, they are still selling, just not as quickly or for as much money as they were this time last year.
If you shop the on line RV classified websites, there are plenty of RV’s of all types for sale, and the ones that are priced right are selling. If you compare what you have with the prices of the ones for sale on line, you can sell yours, if you price it correctly. Then you will be in the best position to purchase another one and save money. It truly is a buyers market, and you can save on a new one, or a used one, just don’t get in a hurry, and shop around before you think about buying. If you buy right and the market comes back in the next couple years, you might be able to come out money ahead.
