This is just an observation based on what I have read and what I have seen for sale
....these fiberglass (EGG) molded travel trailers are grossly overpriced for what you get...both new and used...this compared to units from other makers.
My 26 foot fully optioned (full bath with shower, full kitchen with large Refrig/freezer, 3 burner gas cooktop, full feature microwave
, double S/S sink.
The trailer has two dinettes that can convert to beds, a rear bedroom with queen sized bed and a bunk over if you need it. Two large wardrobes, many overhead cabinets, 13,500 BTU A/C, ducted forced hot air heat with thermostat, outside shower plus an outside 2 burner gas cooktop, awning
and 30 gal fresh water tank, and two 30 gal waste tanks, twin 20 lb propane
tanks and much more. It has a dry weight
of 3,700 lbs. It has fiberglass sides and a membrane roof.
I found this unit used from a private seller, one owner, was almost never used therefore in "as-new condition". I paid his asking price of $5,000.....stumbled on another in similar condition after I bought this one for about the same money...it was 28 ft long with about the same equipment for $5,200.....How about a Class-A motor home, 32 ft long, 62,000 miles....needs some interior work to back bedroom...side windows
leaked and destroyed two twin beds and wall area...454 V8 engine said to be in good working order...tires might need replacing...direct from owner in Vermont and now asking only $1,500. Again this one needs interior work but one bargain for a do-it-yourself type of buyer. Everywhere I travel I see used travel trailers for sale
at very low prices....many in excellent condition.
After a full season of use I am very happy with my one owner unit costing $5,000. Again this unit is a big step up in creature comforts and space compared to the "EGG" type trailers I have inspected....to date only the larger Big Foot trailers have what I need to be a happy camper. Everyone has different needs and space requirements. We started small with a 15 ft travel trailer back in 1985....now even 26ft seems a little cramped for two....I'd love a bigger bathroom....most RV baths are too cramped.
The bargains are out there but not to be found in the molded fiberglass units, at least not any I have seen with matching features.
Expand your search and I know you will locate something under $2,000 if you focus on direct from the owner RV offerings. Try Craigslist and local/regional newspaper Ads.
