Selling our Momentum
328M Toy Hauler

Two years, 34 states, 3 Canadian Provinces, and 15,000+ miles later. Our Grand Design Momentum has brought us to some incredible places. We’ve camped under the stars in the middle of no where, explored fun cities, met great new friends, and seen more of our nation’s national parks than we thought we would in our lifetime. If your new here and want to catch up on the fun we’ve had (click here to explore our site more). However, the time has come to say goodbye to our Momentum. After we decided to sell our fifth wheel toy hauler it took us 3 months to find the best possible buyers for it and we’re happy to see her in good hands. The video below shares our journey through the sale, including the oh so fun packing process, getting a storage unit for the first time, and saying goodbye to our home of the past two years.

our journey as full time rver’s

It’s absolutely crazy to think that we’ve spent two years full time in our RV. When we decided to full time RV, we did a lot of research trying to identify the perfect rig for us. We toured RV Dealerships every weekend we had free, watching hundreds of youtube videos which ultimately led us to buying a Grand Design Momentum 328M Toy Hauler Fifth Wheel. At the time, it had everything we wanted; a garage for Dennis’s Honda Goldwing F6B, comfortable living space including an enormous pantry *swoon*, a separate bedroom, and just overall looked modern and nice. If you want to see a full tour of our rig, click here! So why did we decide to sell our Toy Hauler? Because sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know.

The 328M looked perfect for us, but we had never towed a fifth wheel (or really anything) before. We didn’t know that bigger isn’t always better. We didn’t know that the ease of getting around with our rig would outweigh the spaciousness it offers, or that our cats would hate having to be put in crates and put into the truck every time we move. Really, we just didn’t know what was truly important to us as full time RV’ers. While we still love the design, the layout, the space, and really the rig overall – it just doesn’t fit our lifestyle as RVers. We’ll be sharing exactly what we’re looking for in our new rig, and what we didn’t enjoy about the toy hauler in another post. 

That’s why we listed it for sale in November 2018 so we could continue or nomadic lifestyle in a rig that is more suitable for our way of traveling. It took just under 3 months to sell and we only had to show it twice. We’re extremely happy with the couple that ending buying it (although we made friends to both parties we showed it to – which is awesome). Gail and Jodi, the new owners of Mo the Momentum are accustomed to the RV life. They currently have a van they custom built and decked out to be able to camp off grid. They go on shorter trips across the country with their two dogs, and were looking for a larger fifth wheel toy hauler to permanently park on their property in North Carolina. With our momentum they have the flexibility to travel with a larger rig for longer trips and more space and creature comforts of home when they are parked on their property. 

They were looking for a rig that already was boon docking capable, and since we’ve decked our momentum out with a complete solar set up, in addition to upgrading the suspension, tires, breaks, they realized it was just what they were looking for.

what’s next for us?

It’s weird to say goodbye to something that was so important to us and was the place we called home for the past two years. While it was emotional, it’s also exciting. It means were one step closer to buying the right rig for us to continue this lifestyle and be able to travel more comfortably for our needs. We’ll be sharing more of where this journey takes us, and what we end up buying. But for now, we’re just accepting this season for what it is, a season of change and unknowns – and we’re okay with that.

    Hey! I came across your YouTube video and was curious how you sold it, did you consign it to Lazydays? We are currently trying to sell our rig and not having much luck. We have posted it on Craigslist, RV trader and Facebook Marketplace and no luck and are motivated to sell and trying to figure out the best route!

      Hi Vivian, We listed the Momentum on all the sites you mentioned.
      The couple that ultimately bought it found us through craigslist.
      I would not recommend consignment unless you own it free and clear & have the ability to let it go for cheap.
      We still had financing on our rig & Lazydays consignment fees would have killed any interested deal, unless we came out of pocket to make up the difference between lazydays take & the number we needed to payoff our financing.
      I’m sorry I couldn’t be any more help. But, it sounds like you’re on the right track.
      Some other ideas to consider would be to use it since you have it & advertise it for sale in the campgrounds you visit. Or rent it through Outdoorsy or RVshare, if you felt comfortable with that.
      The camping season is just about to get into full swing so I’m sure someone will be calling you soon! – Dennis ✌️
