What some think is a project, to others it means cleaning thoroughly (OUR dirt is cleaner than YOUR dirt) and it's still safe to tow down the road (bearings/brakes/tires and all exterior lights work). Think HARD sided tent.


So exactly what is a "project"?
I thought "project" meant that it was a special project that the seller worked on, and customized and transformed into a special, one-of-a-kind camper that will command a price much higher than standard models.

But the moral of the ambiguity is that condition means everything. How much you should ask is mostly dependent on the condition and any improvements made.

Thanks to all who have chimed in!

Hi All,

I was able to speak with Floyd at length and he gave me some great feedback!

Thanks so much for all the input! I am always amazed at the generousity of the people who use this site...

Tonnie

I HATE to part with it and I'm praying God will send some other means with which to pay for my dental work!

Tonnie, I knew Floyd would steer you well. I remember when you first got that trailer and I know how you must feel about selling it! Do what you need to do now, and I've no doubt there's another egg waiting for you when you're ready...

Best wishes!

Hi Donna,

In my "project", it just needs cosmetic type repairs. I also need to add a refrigerator and cooking device. I have all the fiberglass parts but not the bunk hardware. I actually have already accumulated most of what I need. I just need trim, paint, that kind of thing. It's sound and dry. I also have to figure out how in the heck to get a skull and crossbones decal off the back plastic window!

Thanks!
Tonnie

Hi Jon,

Thanks for your response... I've been looking forward to fixing this little baby up and using it for a couple of years. It's sweet you remember when I go it and how excited I was. I've been waiting for my husband to check out the systems, but after speaking with Floyd, I now know there's not much to check out. Mine is definitely the easy, screw water hose on and plug the electric in. So, I'll be checking that myself. My poor husband is just tired of fixing things...When I bought it I was told everything worked so I'm hoping that is the case.

I've been so blessed to receive Floyd's advice!

Thanks,
Tonnie

Okay, I checked...

I have a 2008 Scamp standard, layout 1, with the following options: furnace, screen door, silverware drawer, kitchen window, city water, gravel shield, battery pack, icebox only, no fridge. I have the original purchase contract from the first owner. It shows a base price of $7495 and $1009 in options, for a total MSRP of $8504 before shipping.

NADA indicates a base MSRP of $7795, and a current average retail value of $5515.

Observations:
  • Configuration and option choices are very generic, geared to large RVs, and do not align with Scamp's pricing menu.
  • Both the MSRP and the average retail price are low, though not outrageously so given the crudeness of the configuration set-up.
  • Based on this test, I would not completely laugh off NADA valuations, but I would weigh it along with other data.
  • NADA makes no provision for significant renovations, so it is really only useful for newer trailers in original condition.

Judging by recent sales of similar units, I'd put the real-world value at $500 to $1000 higher than NADA.
