It's always best to sell your AS privately. Unless the new unit is deeply discounted to make up for the loss on the trade. You can count on a dealer only giving you "wholesale" price and I can tell you from experience it is a big difference. I've sold two AS this summer and I can say the landscape is changing. I sold my 22FB Sport within 24 hours on RVTrader. I'm now selling my son's 2018 International Signature 28RB. It has sold once but the buyer couldn't get financing. It's back on the market. Total time so far, 2 weeks.

I traded my 2001 Safari on a new unbuilt 2003 Classic Slide out. I started out the conversation with the dealer noting that I would deal on a wholesale to wholesale basis or a retail to retail basis since the Safari was still new and was really in pristine state. Dealer said he would deal retail to retail basis and he offered me the retail value (MSRP) of my 2001 trailer against the MSRP of the Classic. As it ended up my original deal for my new build 2001 Safari was $4,000 less than the MSRP. So technically I received over $30,000 equity against the MSRP of the Classic. Interesting thing was that when I gave him my documentation and the Airstream binder, in the binder was a copy of the document for the trailer that was the equivalent of the price sticker on the window of a car or truck. He immediately took that document from the binder saying he didn't want to give that to the buyer of my trailer. Made me wonder how much that buyer of my trailer was paying for that trailer. Jack

Just curious has anyone lately used their dealer to sell their trailer on a consignment basis? I had a friend do this about 10 years ago, but I'm not sure if dealers do this anymore.

I sold my previous Airstream on consignment at my local dealer here in Michigan, in 2015. I then ordered a new one from the same dealer. It was easy and fair.
