Hi everyone!

It will be for sale, but probably not yet at this moment due to the weather here in Indiana. I was hoping to get it out and get it ready for sale here in March/April timeframe so it will be ready for someone to acquire and use this coming camping season if they so desire.

My parents have a building that it is stored in and there are some other things being stored in the way of getting it out, so we would have to move some items first. Since the ground is so soft and weather is going back and forth between snow and ice and rain right now, I have no desire to get it out and expose it to those elements!

My main goal is to show it on the site to get some expert opinions on fair market price for this type of trailer and see if anyone on the forums might be interested in it. I will offer it for sale on here first, so keep tuned! If there is no interest on the forums, I probably will post it on ebay and advertise locally.

I just got back from taking some interior photos and will post them here in a few minutes.

IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED IN MAKING US A FAIR OFFER AND WOULD LIKE IT TO BE PRIVATE, FEEL FREE TO DO SO VIA A PRIVATE MESSAGE IN THE FORUMS OR BY EMAIL. MY EMAIL IS kurtnval@insightbb.com.

Thanks!!

Just found some info that might be pertinent to this model:

This is a one-owner. Trailer was purchased on 2/21/75.

I have two conflicting numbers maybe someone could help me out with. On original purchase receipt, there is a serial number of SB010343 and model year shows 1973, which would make it a first year model I believe. On the registration papers, the Indiana BMV shows a Vehicle ID number of Z7522200002447Z and show it as a 1974 model. The ID sticker on the camper is worn off so I can't see the date of manufacturer which would answer my question.

Does anyone glean any info based on the numbers above as to what year it actually is? I'm guessing the serial number might be a dealer number since VIN numbers usually aren't that short.

If I was still looking I'd be happy to pay at least 4K for that. And if I was selling it, I would expect the market would bear at least that -at least in my area (west coast of BC).

It's a pretty little trailer! If I was in the market, I'd be interested. I don't think you'll have any problem selling it.

Congrats on the sale...at least you allowed the auction to run its course without cancelling it.

Thanks, Tim

I was getting nervous toward the end, but I kind of figured if someone was really interested in it, they were going to wait until the very end to bid!

There must have been a lot of curious people though as I had 100+ people watching it and only 2 place bids.

I think it will be going to a good home. The buyers said they plan on camping in it instead of just buying it to store again. It sounds like they have no intention of tearing it apart and remodeling it, which I think is really cool.

Anyways, thanks for the congrats!

I was getting worried, I would have bought it if you would have decided to sell it back in the beginning, I bought my Boler just after you started asking about the value of your trailer. That was a beautiful trailer and I hope they don't change a thing.
