Owner said make an offer....

Found a 2008 Scamp 13'. Sounds like a pretty basic set up...nothing special. Owner has a price on it, but says feel free to make an offer...what is a decent price to pay for one of these in good condition? (Haven't actually seen it yet...it is a state away, owner says all is in good condition) but planning to look next weekend ( and obviously haven't committed to but if not in good shape)if we can come close on a price....

I always recommend that when purchasing, check the NADA price because NADA always prices these fiberglass RVs low and use this figure when buying. You can adjust your offer down based on the condition, etc and work your way up if the offer is not accepted. Print out the NADA report and have it with you to show the seller.

think the reason NADA is low is because the bulk of Scamp sales are private therefor NADA does not have data to base their price on.

2012 Scamp Price, 2012 Scamp Values & 2012 Scamp Specs | NADAguides

I recommend exactly the opposite to the seller. The seller should always say NADA don't have the actual facts on what Scamps sell for.

How does $6600 for a 2008 sound?

I think that sounds like a good price if it is in good shape. These little eggs really hold their value.

They said they've traveled less than 2000 miles with the rig....I can't imagine it's not in good shape.....I did get some pics and it looks good except for the cover on the spare which had seen better days (but is also fairly cheap to replace)....

$6600 is a very good price. What is he asking? If that is his asking price it probably won't be there next weekend.

I paid a similar price for a similar trailer a little less than a year ago and felt quite good about the deal. I would have been willing to pay a little more and still considered it a fair price based on what I know now. I felt even better when I saw how much the family enjoyed the trailer.

He is holding it for me...so it should still be there sat. It is not his asking price but I needed to make sure I could afford it before I drove 3 hours to look. There is a 78 nearby for 4000 that they said had some renovations in 2007...I think I would rather pay a little more and go a lot newer at this point.

You might try putting an ad in the paper asking for one. I do that all the time when I'm looking for something and somebody always knows somebody who has one they are thinking of selling. Since they are made in Minn. I would think there would be plenty to choose from. I saw an 88 13' in Idaho last summer listed for $1500. I was an hour late, grrrrrr

I put an ad in the paper, in every site I could think of on the internet and peppered both nearby towns with flyers. Also stopped at at least four houses where I found them and asked if they wanted to sell....

If that one is too much for you maybe this one will work. Fargo, ND on the border.

Gene...the one in Fargo is almost twice the drive of the other one I am looking at (it's about 5 1/2 hours)....I have spent over 24 hours on the road running around looking at campers....between the gas and time, I might as well have bought a newer one in the first place. The guy did make a comment that he had had a half dozen people look at it (and it is still there....which worries me a little)....unless he was bluffing....

Ms. Zabo....I think that would be considered a steal....does anyone actually pay close to book for these things?
