Recreational vehicles such as motorhomes, fifth wheels, travel trailers, pop-up or folding motorhomes, and trucking motorhomes are selling more slowly this year than they did last year. I wonder if I should sell before the market gets worse. When you put the condition of the economy, which really isn’t as bad as the media makes it out to be, in perspective with the pleasure my family gets from using our RV, I’ve decided now is not the time for us to sell. Since diesel fuel costs more than $4.00 a gallon, we’ll be taking shorter trips this year than in the past, yet we can still get away and relax and not spend a fortune.

Since sales are slower than last year, we’re heading toward the time to buy, if you’re in a financial position to make a significant investment. The problem is that if you have an RV to trade or sell, it will mean you probably won’t get as much as you want for yours, however the one you’re buying should more than make up the difference. If you’re moving or buying a newer one, you should get by. The market is slower than it was, they are still selling but not as fast or for as much money as they were last year.

If you shop at online RV classified websites, there are plenty of RVs of all kinds for sale, and the ones that are priced right are selling. If you compare what you have with the prices of those for sale online, you can sell yours, if you price it correctly. Then you will be in the best position to buy another one and save money. It really is a buyer’s market, and you can save on a new or used one, just don’t rush and shop around before you think about buying. If you buy well and the market comes back in the next two years, you may be able to get money ahead.
