My husband and I were looking at trading in our toy hauler for a normal travel trailer since we are done needing to haul toys. We had looked online for the units we were interested in and walked in the door knowing exactly what we wanted to look at.
The first unit we looked at was totally trashed. The previous owners had modified the unit and their dogs had destroyed the table, benches, and couch which we were told they would not fix it was just being sold as is. We looked in the fridge and there was black mold everywhere...we were told that they do not detail any trailers until after they are sold and they would clean out the fridge. They had windows open all over so you know the trailer really smelled as well.
And they were asking almost new money for a 2 year old trailer that was trashed. I would not pay even 1/2 of what they were asking for that trailer. We were then told that if we wanted to figure out the value for our trade to take LOW value on NADA and divide it by 2. Really?
They are delirious. She tried to tell us that we would be better off purchasing the new trailer first, then consigning with them to sell our old trailer. Again, this is a win win for camping world. They get a new loan (we are not planning on financing anything) and then if your trailer sits too long they are counting on you just taking the low ball value for your trade in so they can turn around and sell it for at least $10,000 more than they gave to you for it.
We walked away and will never set foot in another camping world. Go somewhere else.
