Ah, yes…selling the sizzle, not the steak. Guess that "escaped" me! Good point.

Wow Glenn, I knew Escape trailers hardly depreciate, but somehow you made yours appreciate! How nice

I haven't looked, but have you advertised on Molded Fiberglass Trailers | Fiberglass RV's For Sale and FiberglassRV.com ?

I've actually had more interest from FGRV, but I guess that makes sense, since they have a larger member base.

It is $3500.00 more than a brand new one. And $3500 buys a lot of extras. Plus, I would imagine you want US dollars.

Well...at a base price of CA$22,500 for a 2015, and adding the extras I put on on it (see build list), I came up with CA $28,515, which at today's exchange rate is US $26,500, I figured I'm in the ballpark.

Keep working at selling it. Show lots of pictures and advertise on all of the FG sites as well as Craigslist. It is worth what people are willing to pay for it. If you don't get any interest in a reasonable time period with good advertising exposure, then that is a good indicator that you may need to drop your price a bit. I find that a small price reduction with a revised ad stating "PRICE REDUCED", often makes a huge difference in getting people interested.

Santacruzer:
My wife and I are interested in a 17B. While your trailer is undoubtedly very well equipped, it has several options that we do not think we need (and would not order if we were buying one new. Among these options are the 3-burner stove and air conditioning. Further, regarding the solar panel, while we would buy one, Escape is currently offering a 160w, where your trailer only has a 95w. Thus, while your price is fair for the options you have, it is close enough to the new price that if we decide to buy, we would prefer to order a new trailer and get exactly the options that we want. While your trailer is available now, while Escape is sold out until next year, we own a Tab and so don't have the urgency to buy immediately. Your price would have to be considerably less than new for us to be interested. Perhaps your apparent lack of response to your trailer is due to others viewing your price as we do. Good luck and best wishes in selling it!
