RE: Travel Trailer Purchase

Thank you all, I appreciate all the info. I think Thermoguy has the right idea and did check out RV rentals. But my wife has a bit of a keeping up with the Joneses mentality and honestly I don't mind in this case. Having a TT will be a good excuse to get out and see the world (or at least my state). I have a Starlink and can work remotely from wherever, could be a bit of an adventure. I was hoping to pick the best option as far as resale knowing that either way I'm probably going to be under water. Financially I may regret it but I think we're going to go with the Aspen. I like the extra place to sit and the larger slide out. Anyone have clever ideas on how I can make this thing a business expense? :)

RE: Travel Trailer Purchase

They are both used. The Shadow is a personal sale from a couple who got divorced and just wants to get rid of it. The Aspen is at a dealer and was traded in. If the decision was purely about functionality I think I'd take the Aspen but I worry that I may not like camping or may just be too busy to use it and want to be sure if that happens I will get most of my money back when/if I sell.

RE: Travel Trailer Purchase

Good info, those are the things I wouldn't have thought about until it was to late. The NADA value confuses me, wish I hadn't looked at it. Is the Shadow Cruiser considered a better class of travel trailer then the Aspen?

Travel Trailer Purchase

Hi everyone, I'm trying to decide between two travel trailers and thought I'd reach out here since I have very little experience (my first purchase). The choice is between a 2021 Aspen Trail 26BH and for $26,800 and a 2021 Shadow Cruiser 240BHS for $29,000. They are both base models in good shape no work needed. I kind of like the Aspen but NADA says the low Retail is 19,900 vs the Shadow at $28,000 which makes the shadow a better value. They both are very similar, it seems strange that one books for so much more, is the Shadow that much better?
