Priced appropriately, I think. I bought a similarly used Class C many years back for almost that amount. It was a Fleetwood 29 footer. Problem is likely going to be finding folks who can get financing, if needed.

Good luck!

You said you would consider a partial trade on a B. Is a B your future?

I'll ask the first question you'll get from most potential buyers.
Gas mileage? I know it's around 8 mpg. I'd add that to the listing.
Whenever I list something for sale, I try to include any possible
negatives, just to prevent any awkward silences, and to avoid
wasting my time and theirs. Nothing to hide, seems to work for me.
It's a beautiful rig, and I hope it sells (or trades?) quickly for you.

I can't see the ad for some reason so I can't see the price or the the MH itself. I will tell you when selling anything you never point out the negatives. I don't see the gas mileage as a negative for a MH. Anyone looking for a Class C and makes the gas mileage a deal breaker is a waste of your time and theirs. Point out the positives and sell it that way. A MH allows a life style that no other thing can give you. The freedom, your own bed, your own shower, control your own food intake (healthy), taking your house with you, your own clean bathroom on the road, no booking hotels, able to change your route on the go, no back tracking after a day of exploring to pickup your trailer, self contained, no hooking up, great for day trips, safe at rest areas by not having to leave the main vehicle.....you get the point. That is how you sell your MH.

Some newbies will have no idea what a class C will get for mileage. We didn't, and I doubt most do.
They will see all the niceties, as you've mentioned, and think it's a great buy, like some that we saw
online when we were looking for RVs and were new to RVing and looking at the various shapes and sizes.
So I think it's prudent to post it up as part of the ad. As you say, those who don't care about gas mileage,
will ignore it anyway, and those who do, won't waste your time or theirs. Just my opinion.

We're looking at selling our "C" this year as well. We haven't used it in almost 2 years and we need something a little newer. We can't get a "B" because our family is too big for one. My wife wants a full camper but I would be happy with a pop-up camper. What ever we get, it needs to fit 5 people with 2 dogs. My truck is rated for a 5200 pound trailer but we won't be getting anything that heavy.

None of these will make the list then?

Funny Mike. I have seen some that small that are quite roomy inside. They have the pull out bunks that makes them larger than just the trailer.

We were looking at a camper but I'm not too sure about the weight of it. It's 3060Lbs dry weight so it can easily be an extra 1000Lbs in water and gear. My truck is rated for pulling 5200Lbs but that's the max. Pulling something that heavy would kill the gas mileage. We may go look at it again this weekend but I'm reluctant to get something this heavy.

Another local dealer says they will be getting in a new model this spring that is only 7ft wide and ultralight weight. I may wait to see what they are like when they get some in stock.
