Oh no - didn't you just buy this unit a couple of months ago? Don't let initial buyer's remorse get you down. Chinooks are well built classics and once you overcome the typical learning curve everything will sort itself out. Good luck either way.

As Ted says, I hope you really do want to sell, vs. a "confidence hump" that you might be able to overcome.

That said, if you're definitely selling, you might consider listing a price. A few more photos would be a bonus.

This is more than buyers remorse, I truly can't afford to have an RV. Big sigh. I love this Chinook, but I've been all over Maine in it, learned all the systems, and have made my decision. It's a GREAT Chinook.

I'm trying to edit the post, thought I had the price.
Figuring it out.

It's too bad for sure to see someone have to sell but everyone has a different comfort level. Owning and maintaining an RV has its pros and cons.

FWIW I have had many RV's over the years and find the Chinook a fairly basic rig to maintain. When you look at the complex and automated RV's of today the Chinook really is quite simple. I will be camping with a bunch of friends in October who all have very large motorhomes and 5th wheels who truly have some nightmare stories of issues with their RV's. I am lucky to have avoided those problems. They really don't camp, they call it Glamping. (Glamorous camping) :lol:

Good luck and happy trails to hannafree. Here's also hoping Deb will hang in there and get comfortable with Chinook ownership.

It's true, the Chinook IS pretty straightforward, and I'm pleased to say that I hung in there and learned the systems and am quite comfortable with them. In fact, I found them to be amazingly wonderful, comfortable, and now I'm spoiled. Really spoiled.

I just showed the Chinook to some very discerning people, and it was great to be able to show them around with confidence. It's hard to let go of this camper, and I want none other now that I've been spoiled by this one.

Needs must.

Nice rig! Good luck with your sale, and happy trails.

Hope it doesn't dilute your listing, but I read the word "remorse" and it reminded me of something. Last summer a friend bought his first RV. Oddly enough, he picked it up in the heart of Vancouver. No biggie since it was just a 40 foot class A :shock: . While stopped at a red light, the passenger side slide decided to extend, much to the displeasure of the gentleman in the Cadillac to his right. My friend had to drive half a mile through the city with a slide most of the way out before he found a suitable place to pull over. He spent the better part of an hour blocking a lane of traffic while he disconnected power and manually retracted the slide, by himself, with zero knowledge of the coach. And that was after he exchanged information with the justifiably-angry man in the newly dented CTSV. Now that's buyers remorse. Since then, he's sideswiped two cars, spent about $8k in tires, and gotten stuck twice. He's thinking about downsizing to a 30 footer.

I'd say that doesn't just not dilute the listing; in actual fact, it would make me want to RUN to buy something as easy to drive as a Chinook (like this one in the ad). It's an endorsement! :D
