Was wondering how many carnivals trade rides during the off season or if it happens at all? It would seem that if one show had a ride that they carried for awhile they would trade it for a ride of equal value with a different show that had carried a ride for awhile and save each other the cost of purchasing the rides.

Happens quite often. A lot of times a show will list a ride for sale, and will also say something to the effect of "will trade for a...." and list a couple of rides that they would be willing to trade the ride they are selling for. An example might be "Zipper for sale, good condition, 1990 model, rebuilt in 1998, asking $125,000, or will trade for a Sky Master or Ring of Fire." Just an example of some of the ads I have seen over the years. [:)]
