Trailers are like cars drive them off the lot be prepared to lose but do a lot of listings read my advice in scamp be prepared to wait. I have a very desirable camper and it has taken 6 weeks to move. Don't get in a hurry and hold out on your price as long as you can.

If I was looking for a new rig which I am not I would take a long hard look at yours let you take the loss and have a nice one for less money but some people have a headset they want new regardless. I bet someone has one of these ordered right now and the factory will let you off the hook. they have a backlog on orders!

good luck

This is not correct in regard to molded fiberglass trailers. If the trailer is in a good working condition, the market price is equal or even more than you paid when picked up the trailer at the factory.

I was once offered 3 grand more for my trailer than I paid for it new 2 years before. So what's it's market value?

If it's molded fiberglass, you don't just look it up on NADA or Kelly.

There's always two prices and it doesn't matter the year of the trailer or it's condition.

1. What the seller is willing to sell it for.
2. What a buyer is willing to pay.

After those two there are factors such as: condition, options and location, location, location
