Trailer: U-Haul 16 ft
Posts: 2
Would like some ideas on the value of a '89 16ft U-haul w/ roof air, in good condition. Looked at NADA online, U-haul isn't listed, don't know where else to look. Saw it an RV dealer, as a trade-in about 100 miles from where I reside, wonder if dealer is asking a fair price. This is my first post here, hope I'm in the right forum

Hi Chet, and welcome! The latest year model it could be would be an '86. They were only produced from '84-86. The 16' is fairly rare as there were far fewer of them built; rumored to be around 200 of them. It could be worth from $500 to $5,000+ depending on the condition of the trailer, the interior, the appliances, whether or not the axle is in good condition, and whether or not it has air conditioning. There have been a couple of them for sale recently in the $4k plus or minus range. There was a nice one on eBay that didn't meet reserve at nearly $5k.

Good luck!

Roger

We bought our '86 16' UHaul Vacationer for $3750 about a month ago in Arkansas. Since then, I've seen some posts that say this "Buy It Now" price on eBay was too low for the rarity of the trailer. I guess it what seems fair at the time and how badly you might want to buy or sell. Our trailer had a small fridge (we've put in a bigger one), no propane tank or cook stove (since replaced and working), but did have a working water system with hot water heater. We've also just ordered a Coleman Polar Cub AC with heat strip. We are tickled pink with the trailer!

We could take it out right now, but probably won't until our first scheduled trip on Memorial Day weekend to Camp Nauvoo (IL) for the Scamp Camp.

You didn't say what the dealer is asking. Is it between $4000 and $5000?
