TOPIC: A plane old part exchange
A plane old part exchange 7 Years, 8 Months ago  
Motorhome salesman Andrew Harris has met some challenges in his time but he thought taking a plane as a trade-in might be a challenge too far.

Andrew, from the Romahome Centre in Southampton, was following up an enquiry from private pilot Bob Woolford, a former part-time air traffic controller at Sandown and Bembridge Airport on the Isle of Wight.

When he asked Bob what he needed to do to complete the deal, Bob told him that he would have to take a four seat Piper Cherokee in part exchange.

Although he thought he might have a struggle to make the sale, within half an hour Andrew was able to go back to Bob with figures that sealed the sale – and with the plane sold, too.

Andrew said that during several years in the motor trade he had never been asked to part exchange a plane before, although he had once taken a longboat in part payment for a motorhome.

Apart from other running costs, with fuel approaching £2 a litre and consuming 38 litres an hour, Bob's Piper Cherokee was becoming expensive to keep in the air. But his new Romahome R25, adapted with wheelchair ramps, should go much further for the same money, making it easier to see the world without the sky-high running costs.
