Do people actually trade rigs

Recommended Posts

Hi, we are thinking of downsizing from a 5th wheel to a short Class A or Class C. I was wondering do people actually trade rigs or should we plan on trading at a dealership? We have a 2008 Sunnybrook Titan 33CK-TS in great condition but my husband is physically disabled and is no longer comfortable setting up the rig. We no longer full time and rent a home. We would still like to travel and think a small motorhome would be perfect. Any opinions or thoughts? Has anyone gone through this dilemma?

It does happen, but isn't very common. It can be difficult to match the proper RV owners in order to make a swap work. I suspect that this category was started thinking of people who exchanged RVs between different countries in Europe or such.

JMHO, but I would sell the 5th wheel myself rather than consigning it to a dealer or trying to engineer a swap; neither would be a "clean deal". A consignment sale gives a healthy cut to the selling dealer and I doubt that even a relatively equal value swap could be made, particularly since you don't seem to be sure what you want to trade the 5th wheel for. I'd sell your rig privately, do plenty of research to help you decide what would work for you, then make that buy, i.e., not contingent on selling or trading the 5th wheel.

Well  do bad freenanu does not own a Class A Winnebago product, I own a Class C 2016 Minnie Winnie 22R  23'10" and would be interested in trading up to Winnebago or Itasca. So if Someone in the western part of the US is interested contact me.
