What’s my Fifth Wheel Trailer Worth

Question: Dear Luise: We have a ME TOO, 17ft. Fifth Wheel Travel Trailer.  Thinking about selling it since we haven’t used it.  It is in very good condition. How do I find a price?  I looked on NADA and found nothing.  Any advice? Looking forward to your response. D.

Answer: Dear D.: It looks to me like your trailer is an “orphan”…which means it is no longer being manufactured.

I think I would search the web for other fifth wheels of the same size, construction, age and general floor plan. There are many sites that sell used trailers. I’d probably start with Craig’s List. Pay special attention to any makes that are also orphans. When you have a pretty good average of what they are going for…advertise it for that amount and see what happens. Blessings, Luise

    I owned a me too fifth wheel a few years ago and would like to hear from the owners as to its condition, and see a few photos. I also could not find any information about the me too company.

      P – When an RV is older, the value is in how much it appeals to a buyer and what they are willing to pay. I would try it at that but not necessarily count on it.
