Do you plan to buy an RV in 2023? Do you plan to sell your current RV? Or do you plan to do both, buy and sell?
The good news is that the price of new RVs has already begun to drop, dramatically in many cases. But the bad news is that so has the resale value of used RVs, again, sometimes dramatically.
We’re talking about your likely plans. Nothing is for sure, right? So what do you think? Buy? Sell? Both?
Remember, it can take a few moments for the poll to load, so stand by. It can be a slowpoke. But we assure you that it’s on its way.
We’ve ordered a custom 5th wheel toy hauler from Dune Sport for delivery in November. We’ll either sell our current couples TT or rent it.
I voted Buy but it is only hopeful! At 77 and 75 we may be too old to pick up RVing! We’ll just have to wait and see!
Sorry to say we are giving it up and selling our Outdoors RV. It is difficult to travel the way we like without an itinerary or even definite route and make reservations the day of arrival. If I wanted regimentation and scheduling, I would have stayed in business.
I clicked on “both” but in reality we have been looking for a “newer” motorhome but haven’t found anything significantly newer that we like as well as our 2005 Dutch Star.
We are hoping to rent an RV. We don’t have one and aren’t ready to purchase one yet, but we want to begin RVing soon.
Needed the option of ‘no idea’ or ‘not sure’.
Just traded our 20 year old maintenance nightmare 41’ DP for a brand new ‘23 35’ gasser. So far , couldn’t be happier. Full time in the DP with all our stuff was great ! 2 years ago bought/ built a RV port winter home. 2-3 Shorter summer trips and the gasser fits the bill.
Neither in 2023. We did both in 2022. That is, traded our 43′ 2016 for a 36′ 2022. We bought the ’16 off a dealer’s lot. We specified the features and ordered the ’22.
We just sold our RV and picked up our new one last week. We hope to get on the road in a few weeks if the weather cooperates. 😁
I have been patiently playing the waiting game for the past two years and now the pendulum has swung back to the buyer’s side, deals will be better. There will be more sellers than buyers and, if you have cash, it’s the time to buy. While prices have increased on new units, the used market is flooded. The downside for sellers is that they may owe more than they can get for their used units.
We have been casually looking at new DPs and 5ers getting an idea of what’s out there. Quality way WAY down from our current 2013 and prices way WAY up even though they are trending down. Haven’t seen a thing that convinces me to trade in our 2013 4336 Mountain Aire.
Keeping our 2006 Country Coach Inspire, 39’ of pure fun. The Cat 9 tows our F150 with no problems.
We have been looking at a new tt. We have a 2017 28rls. The problem I have found is since the big camping boom most new models are built for families. So many bunkhouse models and not enough couples coaches. So we will keep the one we have for now.
Downsized 3 yrs ago from a 43′ diesel pusher to a new 34′ gas motorhome and are very happy we did. Hope to keep rving for another 3-5 yrs or until we hit our early 80’s and then hang it up.
We have added so many upgrades and personal touches to our 2012 TT it would cost a fortune to buy a new (or new-to-us) trailer and bring it up to our standards. So, in our 70s we are confident we are in our “forever trailer”.
Time to quit. Traffic tie ups getting from point A to Point B, high costs when you get there. Rude and inexperienced new campers who have a sense of entitlement.
I’ve already bought (Freedom Express Select 20SE), and will sell my existing trailer if none of my kids want it.
Plan on keeping my beautiful, well built 2013 Forester!
Using current RV. Big advantage, it’s paid for.
Like your Thinking!!
We have poured and are still pouring so much $$$ into our little TT. We would never be able to recoup if we sold it. We will camp in it until we are no longer able and then pass it on to a grandchild.
