Insurance agents typically rely on NADA pricing. It's one of the great things about the Sold archives here on FiberglassRV (and elsewhere). At least you'd know what the starting price for an all molded trailer for sale might have been. In most cases, that's thousands more than NADA. When you see a trailer that's for sale like your own, copy the ad. Watch and copy frequently. Better to do it and never need it, than need it and wish you had!

Please go back and read Post #8. It's all about getting insured for "Replacement Value" or "Stated Value". If the company you are talking doesn't offer it, look elsewhere.

FWIW: Depreciation, and Molded Fiberglass trailers, are mutually exclusive terms. Many 5+ year old FG RV's are now selling for more than their original price.

This is a myth. An oft-repeated one but a myth all the same.

It might be true of much older trailers...though maybe not if inflation is adjusted for.

But it's not true for a trailer as young as a five year old, even for the two "Rare Oliver" owners that have been trying to sell theirs at above-cost for months!

Welcome to the House of Myths
We recently sold our 2004 13' Scamp (std) w/ bath for just over $10,000 and we have turned down an offer of $8000 for our 1994 Lil' Bigfoot.
While both could be called "Very Nice", that's still just about replacement cost for a new trailer, i.e. Scamp
And the Oliver is a special issue, it was priced well above almost all others to start with and isn't as well known as other names. In fact, off this list it's almost unknown except to current FGRV owners
