Keep in mind that in some states, you can purchase your new trailer, and sell the other on your own, and still get a sales tax credit. In Missouri I think you have 60 days after you pay (title your trailer) your sales tax on your new vehicle. You send in a form to the state with a notorized bill of sale on your old vehicle, and Missouri sends you a check for the amount of tax on the overpayment. (Sales price of old trailer times tax rate.)
That's a sweet deal you've got there. Up here there is no opportunity to get such a credit. In fact the purchaser of your used trailer would be obligated to pay the 8% PST on the purchase price. That happens everytime the unit is resold for as long as the trailer exists, and you can add the 7% GST for the full 15% if it is resold by a dealer. P.

Thanks for the information

Thanks to everyones advice.

I suppose as they say let the games begin.

I estimate from what has been posted that the mark up must be about 30% and the best discount up to 20% best cash deal.

I will begin the process tomorrow with the hope of getting one ordered .

Thanks Pappy.

In Jan., I ordered a 2005 30'SO Classic, which was built in Feb. I did not have a trade. The approach I used was to "shop" nationally via the internet, then use these negotiated "best prices" as leverage on my local dealer. I explained to him that I would not hesitate to order from another dealer outside my local area unless he was competitive. With this approach, I was successful in getting the dealer to discount 25% from List Prices. I should mention, however, that my unit is quite "loaded" with options, which likely resulted in a higher mark-up than a more basic trailer.

Good Luck!
