I own nine sailboats. And I am a licensed Captain
. So you would think I'd fall
for the name.
This one seems way over priced to me.
People ask me what boat to buy and one thing I tell them is there is a market for boats. Production boats like Catalina brand have made so many that the market prices are well established. I tell them to avoid non production boats, or those without an established reputation, and those with low production numbers.
I don't know anything about this camper. Let me guess.
Low production numbers. No market because so few were made and few were sold. Poor reputation--also because of the above. Finally, a bit on the ugly side.
I would rate this as a rebuild project and probably not worth the expense because you could not get your money back out of it on resale.
Estimated value? $300
is more my style. I like the 13' Bolers even though I am tall. They are super light
. I thought I found a cheap one but missed out. I would enjoy rebuilding a Boler
Most likely I will get a Bigfoot
truck camper. It seems towing a camper would kill the fuel economy of my Volvo to the point I'd be better off with a truck camper on my dually. I estimate I'll get 13 mpg carrying 4000 lbs, and I can still pull up to 10,000 lbs on a tag hitch.
I just put towing mirrors on my Silverado. Thankfully the price dropped from over $650 to a more reasonable $184. I think I found some Torque Lift tie downs. Next for me is Rancho RS9000 shocks and maybe sone sort of air bag bladder helpers. A little bit of wiring prep and I will be ready to move on a deal on a Bigfoot
2500 10.6E. My brother and his wife have the 10.5 and love it.
I like the idea of towing a boat trailer behind. I have several Sunfishes and a 30' racing sloop which cam be launched with a hoist.
In any event thanks for keeping me in mind. And I would love an excuse to drive to Toronto.
