Question how to price Scamp

Hi,

We are thinking of selling our 13' project Scamp. How do we go about valuing it?

Thanks,
Tonnie

Check the for sale thread and the sold thread for comparisons and consider your condition ,time of year,ease of travel to see it as many will travel long distance. A picture and model year would help and paperwork/ ownership will make a big difference.

It has been posted on this forum dozens of times, that NADA gives low values for fiberglass trailers because they base their quotes on stick-built trailers ( which are numerous ), not on eggs.

Then see how much Good Sam insurance will insure it for.

Good Sam will probably refer to NADA and give you a low-ball number. Which is why people suggest searching the for sale sections of RV forums to get an idea of what a trailer may sell for ( note, MAY ).

The value is what a seller is willing to take and a buyer is willing to spend.
NADA will give you a starting point, low yes, but a starting point provided you give honest answers to its condition.

If you have a EBAY account you can see what similar campers have sold for on their site.

Well, I went to EBAY and sure enough you can find out what Scamp and similar campers have sold for. You need an account to see what they actually sold for. Do not go by what the seller was asking. This should please Glenn as it is the actual selling prices.

I wonder why we don't just ask sellers to give the price they sold for when they announce that the trailer is sold. Many would probably not mind doing that as a guide for others.

One reason is privacy, since the data would be reported publicly. Another is reliability: self-reported data often isn't, and sales that happen through this site are a small (and possibly skewed) sample.

But the biggest is compliance. Given the number of sellers who never report a sale, or ask how to delete the ad (thus indicating they never read the marketplace policies), I think the compliance rate would be too low to make it statistically meaningful.

I'm not even certain what "project" means. Does it mean there's absolutely NOTHING inside where you've removed all the cabinets (and trashed them) right down to NO flooring?


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"?

Anyone interested in buying or anyone who is putting one up for sale only needs a couple of sales prices to get an idea of what they are going for. They can see the year and general condition from photos and that gives them a general idea.

I know what Escapes like ours sell for and we only need a couple of sales prices to know that. Perhaps you mean the privacy of the buyers. Sellers could ask if they mind having it known. Probably most are not on this site and, therefore, they are not known anyway. It is the choice of any seller to say what price he or she settled on (if we even have the real names of the sellers, much less the buyers). You can take it as reliable or not depending upon the party, known or not.
