Not many people want leopard walls, so he's having a tough time selling it obviously--even at a good price. People like a hardwood floor instead of carpet (or laminate floor), and other little upgrades, but generally, I think specialty upgrades that reflect an owner's unusual taste don't increase price, and can sometimes decrease it. Just IMHO.

I wholly agree, to a point! The leopard print is extreme. But inferno red is the most popular dodge and jeep color, and replacing black decal stripes on the side with gold and silver metalic painted strips is not very extreme... and the decal will not last a long time, the black will leach down the sides at some point and fade/peel...

The carpet comes from the factory that way, and it is fiberglass underneath and lfits up.

Basically the Unit is being sold at the cash price of an EGG plus a Generator, everything else is gravy. And you cant mount a 3k Honda gen on the frame unless the frame was modified by Eggcamper for you, other wise it is fitted to a Honda 2K Kw gen from the factory. Jim does not install any GENs...

I have been driving it around and leaving it in shopping mall parket lots with a for sale sign on it for the last 2 days. Each time when I come back there is a group of people around it, the higher asking price is shown.. I give tours... not many seem to be offended! LOL.

On my trips, it has always received the same attention in RV parks, people knock on the door to see it......

I'm sure its not for everyone.. but a person, who is planning to mount a TV, home entertainment, a GEN, likes steps and a grap handle, over door light, a rear storage tray and lots of upgraded electronic internal 60% larger a/c for trvales into the gulf, more 12v/120v lines, auto transfer switch box, a roof top carrier for their car, and just the easiness of the all electric leveling system, solar charging system and etc is saving a bundle, including weeks of time making the changes... They are going to be $10K better off even before the paint! And starting out with matching linen, $400 marine mattress, spice racks, mounting for plastic cups and glasses, food racks, soda can rack, custome shelving in the pantry...a mounted shower caddy, matching shower curtian, plates, place mats, trays... are nice free bees .

Best to you...

Regards

just like selling a house with a swimming pool, to some it is an asset, to others, a liability!

Agreed, one man's junk is another mans treasure..

On the other hand try to find a house in south florida w/o a pool...

In my area, its almsot impossible to sell a house w/o a pool.. and with that though time for a swim....

I know this doesn't put money in your pocket but if I had seen your Egg Camper 3 weeks ago (before I bought my new "sticky") I would be very interested in your camper. Having spent $5000 on Bean's paint job, I think you are offering yours at a steal with everything else on it!!!

Thanks.. I dont think many people realize how much they will actually put in to one , once they walk out the door at close to 19K....

Well I wish I had listed a couple of weeks ago, but my decssion was sudden...

By buying bare as I have often learned, you can find your self penny wise and pound foolish...

Regards and have a good time with your unit... in the end thats what it is about... and all that matters...

I just bought this for $21,000 pn EBay. If I would have seen this post first, I could have saved myself $900 because that's what it will cost me to drive from Minnesota to Florida to get it!!

No , because while the reseve was gone that was the starting price, and no reserve auctions usually mean more bidders... and the EGG had over 100 watchers... You got a great deall! And below my lower Buy it now price.....

The person who out bid you in the regular auction, but was below the reserve.. also wanted it, and you just beat him/her by taking the second offer...

Now if you can wait a few weeks, I will tow it to you much closer if you would like and reduce your pickup cost as i headback to texas...


Regards
