If you have to sell yours in the same time frame as when you buy then what’s the difference? You sell/buy at higher price now vs sell/buy lower price later. I guess the advantage to doing it now is you know what the market is, if you wait until later, you hope you know what the market will be.

I used to be like you and try to figure out what the best timing is to get that slight advantage. You win some you lose some. Now I do things when I want and don’t worry about if I could have saved down the road. I must be getting old.


Good on you Tom, life is too short.

Agree 100%, we traded in and bought brand new in spring (the "worst" time by conventional wisdom) and got an amazing beautiful rig 10 days off the assembly line with brand new fresh tires/hoses/belts/everything. No one ever walked through it at an RV show, etc. It has been essentially flawless the whole time we owned it. We could have dicked around and saved a few bucks, but how many summers do you have left? What's it worth? So we could have waited until fall and bought a rig that's been sitting on the lot all summer and saved what, $1000, $5000, $7500? Pick it up just in time to winterize it for fall and lose that summer? No thanks; life's too short. We aren't rich, we didn't get top money for the trade and possibly overpaid for the new rig and we have zero regrets. Buy what you want, when you see it. It may not be there in fall, or you may be dead in fall.
