In Real Estate, I always tell sellers that the best way to price a home is to predict its market value, and list just above that. The best way to predict market value is to look at the sales price of homes like yours, near yours, that have sold in the most recent past. Then adjust up/down for differences in features, quality, and condition. I suspect pricing a portable home-away-from-home is much the same.

In Nov 2015, I drove from Indianapolis to Michigan and paid $6500 for a 1999, 16 ft mint condition Casita Spirit with double bunks, ice box, and no bath. There is no heater/AC/water heater/awning. It does have a fantasic fan, new fresh water tank and lines, 5 new tires, all new vinyl blinds. The original upholstery and carpet inside looks perfect. The exterior was just hand washed and buffed.

Hope that helps.

I'm sorry, Denise, but my phone is broken... oh yeah... and I forgot that I told you... I'm deaf, so I couldn't call... but if you'll just send me a check in any amount, I'll have my shipper come and pick up your item tomorrow too. My nephew who is doing relief work in Siberia really needs it. But you can trust me. My father is a Priest... or a Minister. I forgot what I told you, but anyway you can trust me.

My question to everyone is I'm thinking about selling it in the future and was hoping to get about 7200.00 for it. Would love to get some feed back from people. Is this too high or low? I don't think anyone will find a cleaner 94 than this one! Any help would be nice.
All the best, Monte
Back on point, Monte (sorry I hijacked your thread) you've gotten good advice here. I've bought and sold more than my fair share of fiberglass trailers over the years. Find recent comps and adjust your price according to condition. Your trailer is worth exactly what someone will pay for it... if you under-price it you'll have it sold in a couple of days. If it's average, it'll take a week to a month. If you over-price it, but it's pristine it'll take a little longer but it'll still sell.

Good luck with your Perris Pacer. i remember when the factory was going in Orange County... I used to drive past it on the freeway from time to time. They were great little trailers.

Roger

Casita 13s are relatively uncommon. Is yours a deluxe or a standard? Advice given is correct. Go to the archives here and at fiberglass-rv-4sale and find comps. There probably won't be many. Similarly equipped Scamp 13s usually sell for comparable prices, so that might give you a bit more to go on. Adjust for age, condition, features, location (major urban areas on the East and West Coasts are usually higher), and season. Allow some negotiating room, and up or down depending on whether you want a quick sale or can wait for the right buyer.

In addition to good pictures, you might also want to get the empty trailer weighed. People looking at 13' eggs often have smaller tow vehicles, and they will ask.

Best wishes, Monte!

Thanks Jon, Great advice for sure. I just want to get fine value for this trailer! She's very very clean. I was diving at the ocean with a buddy and had several ask me if I wanted to sell it and at the time i didn't. Had one lady ask me if I'd take 8000.00 for it. I thought she was just throwing that out there and I said no.

How much should I sell my Casita for?

Here's one of the pictures! This was on a dive trip to Ocean Cove on highway one in Northern California. If you click on my name and then go to registry , you'll see three pictures of the trailer.
