I think it's going to be another bad year for me. I am trying to find a different used Travel Trailer and the supply of them is limited and the prices are just crazy. I still have hope that in a year or two things might get better.


Yes prices are higher. That said, there is NO shortage of used TTs and even some decent priced ones (not steals by any means, but not high priced like many out there).

And you're in the midwest.
I've been shopping used private party trailers for a month r 2 now, and in the much limited market I'm in (bumper pull toy hauler), if the timing worked, I would have drove to Minnsooota for a couple different rigs.
It's all relative. I sold our 18 year old TC last fall for the same price I paid for it 6 years ago and sold the 14 year old truck under it for $4k less than I bought it for 13 years ago.
If you perpetually play the market and buy at the right time, sure you can come out "ahead". But how long you wanna wait?

Now if I could get the flakes on FB or CL to call me about a couple rigs currently advertised, I'd be making a road trip next weekend with a shoe box full of benjis and coming home with a fair priced trailer!
PS, if anyone here knows a guy in Reno with an Attitude TH for sale, tell him to call me if h actually wants to sell it! LOL


As you said it's all relative. Ten years ago I bought a 18 year old TT 30 miles from me in good condition for 3500 dollars. That is the one I am still using. But, I use my TT's hard and go out every weekend. Ten years, and a couple of hail storms later, it's now 28 years old and needs to be replaced. Looking on the internet now I can't find a similar 18 year old TT within 300 miles of me for less then 7500 to 8000 dollars. If you can find one at all.

I am having a hard time spending 8 grand on something that is almost 20 years old or older.

I am kinda picky though and want a certain style.

The RV industry is selling every unit they make. Most go to the bigger dealers. Used units are also available. However, bargain prices are not that common.

Covid has introduced a lot of new folks to RVing, the campgrounds are as busy as ever.

If you know what you want and find what you want, buy it or be willing to wait several years.

Nothing mystical happening, just the response to cabin fever and I doubt it is going to change any time soon.

Good luck
