This is kind of pushing the envelope in regards to our Forum Definitions. The general rule of thumb has historically been:
  • FGRV-Member's trailers go into "For Sale"
  • Not-members-of-FGRV trailers go into "Referrals"

Understood.

Thanks Fred for considering this and I can't really see how it matters where it is posted as far as the Seller is concerned anyway.

This may be a specialty buy for someone who values storage and can live without a shower.
Awnings, stabilizers, and stuff like that are good. Storage is probably not necessary for most, and may give a cluttered look. The rule in houses is: update the kitchen and the bathroom and you can charge for that, the rest, no, even if you love your own modifications. In fact in a small space, adding extra cabinetry may be seen as adding to a claustrophobic feel. Besides, I don't think storage itself is that expensive. I don't mind not having a shower, but I'm just saying, the casita is 6 years old, this is 17 years old, and the Casita has a shower, and this doesn't. The casita will hold resale value (they are both close by in Florida) and this scamp won't likely sell for that very easily. Also, 17 years, things do degrade and need upkeep, recoating and so on. It just isn't the same so I am surprised at the price. That said, it looks very cute.

I think if you asked owners here what the number one thing they would like in their trailers was it would almost always be More Storage!

Not sure why you think it is unimportant but these are tiny rigs and I always look for new ways to maximize the space?

The idea of the built-in storage in this Scamp is to avoid the cluttered look not enhance it and there are many spots to hide stuff out of the way but easy to reach.

These rigs are worth exactly what someone will pay for them so I imagine there will always be a buyer for each trailer for sale.
Beauty on this one is more than Skin Deep.

The Felkers decided they did not need the Shower and so the space was optimized for their needs. Having just attended a Rally with them with 60 more trailers too I would guess more did not have a full bath than did have one?

Everyone has their own needs so we each make the space our own in different ways.

Hi Ed, I have no beef with any of the improvements, and the pictures are charming. I'm just wondering what the market will bear. I am using craigspal (pro) to check listings daily, and here are some examples of what I see in Fl this month:

2007 Casita, $11,500
1988 Casita, $4500
2003 scamp "showroom condition" $6200
2007 scamp 13 feet, $4100

And there is the casita Melissa found, the 2006, for $11,500.
And the gut renovated scamp that sold for $7500 yesterday here.
And the Taos 13 foot 2002 scamp that was listed at $5900 and sold (that had no a/c though, no potty either)

There's absolutely nothing wrong with no shower--it may minimize plumbing leaks for instance--and extra storage. Every loving touch is great, and owners who care for their casita's and scamps and keep them in good condition are to be valued. Still, there *is* a market price...

Jen, was that 2007 Scamp 13 for $4100 a Scam? Sure sounds awfully cheap unless it was damaged. I havent seen any numbers like that one.

By the way, I spoke with the 1988 casita fellow today. He's a flamboyant older man, former designer, who lined the entire casita with leopard fabric, glued it on and lacquered it...and added some special artistic touches on the outside. It needs some small repairs, and apparently has no leaks. I think it has toilet and shower, as he has lived in it fulltime for 2 years. He said he is always stopped, even in parking lots, and people want to take pix. I'm not interested in leopard walls but someone on here may be . Look on Lake City or Gainesville CL--I can't remember which one it was. However he is down near Ft. Lauderdale with it right now. Its well priced at $4500.

Melissa
It could be. I didn't follow up on it. Good point. But anyway, I also saw a 1993 Casita go within one week, before I could look at it, for $7000--it was in great condition apparently.

I wish someone would weigh in with what they think of prices--or PM me
