I was in a large truck camper dealer last week and noticed a brand new (looking) 11' 6" TC on their lot marked "Used". He told me someone had bought it two weeks before, keep it 9 days and returned it for a 5th wheel.

I bet they had too small of a truck. Dealer gave him his money back and didn't take much off the fifth.

But, how much was the dealer asking for the 'used nine days' TC?

Not nearly as bad as the 1 yr old $500k Class A MH you see for sale.

The minute they drive off the lot, they lost more than this guy paid for both the truck and camper.

That happens more than one would think..My dad bought a brand new 9ft SC pickup camper and put it on his brand new 3/4 ton International Harvester(very heavy duty) and did not like the way it road and traded to a Class C.
