Hey guys got a few questions about an old 1973 Eriba Puck

Hey guys, my family just purchased a house and the previous owner left a 1973 Eriba Puck behind. I am looking to sell it, but want to look it over and see what kind of condition it is in, and how much I can get for it.

I wanted to know what kind of things should I look for while inspecting the Eriba in terms of rust and all that? Also, how much can I expect to get for this trailer. I am assuming it is going to need some restoration, although it looks pretty decent for the fact that it is from the 70s. Oh just to mention, just in case it helps with value. I have the pink slip.

I have taken some pics of the exterior, but need to get some of the interior once I get the key.











Thanks in advance guys

Eh...Eriba's aren't that common. Most people just want Bolers and Scamps...
Maybe you'll get $100 in that condition...
I'd be willing to tow it away for free!

But seriously...Where in California are you?

Yo Arman, welcome to FiberglassRV. Your Eriba Puck is totally cool. We have members here that lust for that brand (Gina D., are you paying attention?) But, this forum is about ALL molded towables and the Eriba is only partially (top) molded fiberglass. We may be able to help you, but there's more and better help to be found at a forum targeting your brand here: TheSamba.com :: View topic - Eriba Pucks

Best of luck

Thanks for the replies everyone. I put it up on craigslist around 8pm today and already got somebody drooling over it, it might sell tomorrow for $1500. Is $1500 way to low for this thing? Evan I am in Burbank, CA (in other words los angeles).

Arman... once again check Samba. I've seen Eriba Pucks in pretty bad shape go for easily twice the amount you're asking. But, what do I know... my trailer is ALL molded!

Yeah, I did say that and I am a man of my word so he can have it for $1500. If he backs out I can post it up on Samba.

got my first Trillium 4500 for $2000. I told the seller that unless there was a missing wall that did not show up in the pictures, I would buy it for her advertised price. I assume that by the second time I talked to her, she had heard from several other buyers offering more. She said to me, "umm.. about the price..." and I replied, "Oh! don't worry, I know it is a really good price, I won't try to talk you down". We did not discuss it after that. I got in my van and arrived at her small town in Saskatchewan at about 3am. I slept for a few hours in the van, and was at her door that morning. She got the price she asked, the next day, and I closed the deal with cash. I got a Trillium 4500 Deluxe in great shape. Win, win.
I used to feel a little bad about this, but I have learned that there are others, on this site, that have negotiated even better deals then I did.

The OP got $1500 with no waiting, and got rid of a perceived problem. Win.

If it's not to late: An Eriba Puck we looked at was sold in Riverside about 6 monhs ago for $4000 in about the same condition. They are hot, hot, hot to VW peeps as they were originally designed to be pulled by 36 hp air cooled Beetles. As was mentioned, get thee to Samba.com, rake in the $$$$$ and buy a nice Molded Fiberglass trailer....

I am glad you feel that way. There are other perspectives though. My neighbor, who I have the greatest of respect for, sell many things online. He tells me that if he get too good of a response to an ad, he tells the callers that the item is sold, then re-lists it at a higher price.

Different strokes.

Those who know get what they want and those that don't get what they deserve. What could due diligence apply to more than to your own property, no matter how easily obtained or apparently useless? One man's trash . . . .
