Default Opinions from Buyers Please

I am considering selling my boat. It has a trailer obviously and I have an '04 GMC dually that is mostly used just for trailering the boat. My question is this....Would it be more attractive for a potential buyer to be able to purchase the boat, trailer AND truck as an entire package? Or, would it smarter to sell the truck separate? Thanks in advance for your replies.

Offer it up as a package - can't hurt. You might find that one buyer that wants the whole rig.

I'd say sell the truck separate.the boat may or may not sell. The truck will sell.

List the boat and truck by themselves. In the boat ad, give the info for the package if anybody is interested.

Offer the truck in the ad (for additional money) but don't price it as a package. The sale is going to be tough enough, especially if the buyer needs financing.

You can get rid of the truck easily, the boat not as easy.

Good luck, very cool boat.

Ha...I'd take $28k for it. It's an '04 w/ 75k on it, very clean with a few nice upgrades.
