Spgdale 266RL, 2009: need tips to sell one, (health issues)
I'm sure this is not a new story for us older TT owners. We bought our first ever Springdale 266RL, 2009 model, two years ago. My wife has had health issues for years and I gave this a shot as, perhaps, a last attempt to have a method of travel she could deal with and have, "her own," house comforts. I already had a good pickup so were are capable for towing. Interestingly, I've not become fond of pulling it, but I do. We used it for a few short trips that first summer. Last Spring I replaced all 5 tires and both batteries. We planned two modest trips, (Spring and Fall) Her health has declined, (not life threatening), and she has never had the spirit or enough pain-free time to get off the ground with the TT. So we never got anywhere in 2013. Just put TT back inside for winter again. It has the pair of tall propane tanks and the second one is still from when it bought the TT!
So I think we have to sell it this Spring. Yes, I know there is a buy/sell forum here. I have an idea the RV dealer we got it from, (who sold it new originally), will offer to buy it for Spring used TT stock, but of course, we'll loose our shirt on that. I've also been told consignment isn't always the best method either. We'll take a hit any way we go.
Any tips from those of you who have sold trailers? I'm not expecting a magic answer. I have an offer from a friend to buy it for whatever price any dealer will give us. Might be the best way to go......
Thanks, Dennis in E WA
