    My misses has had enough of me getting my leg over :cry:during the night for toilet visit(s) in motorhome. I have the rear bed over garage in 630 swift sundance. It would seem I have a few choices.

    a) watch intently for the P advert to come on telly, take details, buy product and hope it works after 10 lagers
    b) Let misses get leg over, sounds great!! but just causes problem for someone else (not sure if she would watch out for tena lady adverts)
    c) Part exchange motorhome for one where leg over isnt required. (Hmm think thats what I want!!) :Doh:


    So here is my question if part exchanging, to another motorhome at a dealers to what price difference does it make sense for them to take mine in part ex. For instance if for example mines worth £26k, does that mean its worth it to a dealer financially to sell me a van for £30k so id pay them a £4k difference? or does it only make sense @ £10k+ difference. Ive no HP..

    thanks for any help

    PX with a dealer you will loose both ways. He will waant profit on the one he sells you and then profit on yours when he sells that. So if you PX your £26K against a £30K one you will likely have to part with £6k plus. Unless you are buying something he cant shift.
    Put you self an advert on here (free), Ebay(£35) , Preloved (Free) and see what happens.

    Hi you could try selling private first. Treat it like a house sale. Locate a van you want, then advertise yours like mad on free sites and ebay but be realistic with your price. Then with wonger in your hand, approach dealer, wink nicely, tell him you want his van but your a tight git so he can let you walk out the forecourt, or you can reach a compromise. Also of course the biggest advantage is that you open up a load of private for sale vans as well. :thumb:

    How much the motor home your buying is irrelevant:Eek!:
    How much you get for yours is irrelevant:Eek!:



    I hate discounts:Eeek:
    25% off something priced at double its worth, is no good to man nor beast

    What will it cost £££££ to swop is the only real figure in the equation:thumb:
    and are you willing to pay that amount

    Hi what Geo says is correct :thumb: What you think your van is worth may well be a lot different to what a dealer thinks just the same as what you think the dealers van is worth :BigGrin::Wink:Cost to change is what you need to know :thumb:
