And still we get posts "Complaining" about the high prices of used FGRV's. Your experience sorta speaks directly to that issue I would say.....
A local, and very big, Jayco dealership, avoids trade-ins for several reasons. Who would buy a new one with 5 year old ones at 75% off new list on the same lot?
A friend of mine bought a Coleman hybrid at a much reduced show price and, after a down payment and 2 years of payments, used examples are selling for less than the balance due on that one.
BTW: That applies to all sticky's not just Jayco who builds a fine rig in that class.
Funny thing is, if Scamp or other FGRV builders started selling through dealers, the retail price would go up at least 50% and who would buy a little trailer that cost more $$$ than a behemoth. To many, "Size Matters".
