V3305 to a V3805-- after 3 months?

Hello everyone, So after spending 3 months using my V3305 there are a few things that I wish I could change, Not a super big deal but it seems to me a V3805 would fit my needs better, as crazy as it sounds I would be taking a 10K hit after 3 months for the trade in threw the same dealer. Suggestions? comments? tell me Im crazy

If you have 10k to toss out the window, go for it. If you don't, you're crazy.

It's all relative. We traded in our once-new 14' TT for a new 25' TT (different brand) at the 11 month point. Yes, we took a hit, but we love it. Hindsight tells us we should have bought the larger one first, but C'est la vie! No regrets!

Kind of where we are at too. But the Coleman filled the bill at the time we bought it. We didn't take much of a hit on ours because we traded waaaay up.

It all boils down to what you want and are willing to pay. Perhaps you can find a gently used unit rather than take the depreciation hit of another new one.

If your buying from the same dealer, he would have to do alot better than hitting me for 10K in 3 months. When I am a repeat customer, I expect to be treated better than the first time I walked through the door.

The dealer has to earn my repeat business and the dealer that we bought our camper didn't do anything to encourage us to become repeat customers.

I had another Toy Hauler 2014, had a lot of things going wrong with it and the Dealer I purchased it from, wasn't much help, so we decided on trading it in, went to my old dealer (Truck Camper) and he almost gave me the price we paid for it, (Less then 4K lost) since we were buying a new one that cost 20K more, so I would look around at other dealers, you may find one that wants your business for less then 10K

Grass isn't always greener on the other side of the fence. That's why I still have my 2003 Teton.

I do have a solution to my problem - I do enjoy my 3305 when we have no kids with us . Maybe I will keep it to me and the girl and the Yorkie
