Kurt, you may want to add some key words into the description such as : Casita, Scamp, u-haul and Burro so that fiberglass fans can find it in a search. BTW, I like your add and warranty disclaimer....

Mark,

That warranty disclaimer should sound good. I borrowed yours!!!

You had a good one and I didn't have a lot of time to get it posted so I copied yours and changed the info. Thanks!

my interior is 5 ft 10 inches tall. I have the 102, or whats left of one. The bubble port on top lets a 6 foot tall person stand without issues. That PlayPac is absolutely beautiful. If I had the cash available, it would be mine.

Regarding the reserve price, my reserve is not unreasonable, so hopefully it won't hurt the auction. Either I would have to have a high starting price or have my reserve otherwise I couldn't let it go for less than the offer I have on it. We'll just have to see what happens.

Thanks for the info though!

Mark and Tim,

I took your advice and have removed the reserve. I believe that my starting price is a fair price for someone to acquire this camper. At that price, I have no problems letting it go.

Hopefully, this weekend, our baby will have a new home; someone that can take it out to the campground and and have fun with it. The Hitch-Hut deserves to be in its element, instead of being stored away.

I remember when we took it out in 2009, we had others at the campground asking what it was and if they could have a look at the inside!

It will sell.

A lot of people will bid at the last minute and the price will take off!

Uh oh, now I see you changed the starting price. In my opinion thats basically the same as having a reserve.

Nonetheless, good luck this weekend!

I agree a starting price that high is the same as a reserve,it automatically says that you want $4,500.00 and that may actually scare some people off.

Go for the gamble, starting bid of $100.00 and sell it with no reserve. You will be suprised.

If you want the "sure" thing, sell it to the guy who already offered you $4200. If you want to roll the dice and try to get a higher dollar amount then lower your starting price and let the auction run its course.

From a buyers perspective, half the fun is the thrill of the chase...placing a bid and watching the auction knowing the item will sell regardless. A lot of people will bid a little higher just out of pride!

Drop your starting price to $3000 and I'll place the first bid tonight to get the ball rolling!

I see where everyone is coming from regarding this whole reserve price thing and having a higher starting price, but why would I take the chance that it would sell for $1000, when I have an offer from someone in the low $4000 range already. Its a gamble! You may never know how high it will or will not get.

If it sells for what everyobody on here is saying it will sell for, then $4500 might be a deal for someone. All it would take is for one person to bid $4500 and they could be walking away with it. If no one bids on it, then the couple that gave me the other offer will be driving it home, so I'm not going to gamble and let it sell for less than their offer.

In my opinion, if someone is willing to hypothetically bid $5000 on it, why would it matter if they start out at $500 or $4500. This will keep the bidders that will try and lowball it and think they can buy it for nothing out of the equation. That's just my two cents and we'll see what happens. I have someone to fall back on and on a positive note, we don't have to sell it. It has been with us that long, we can hold onto it a little longer!!

None of this is negative toward anyone. I've had a few things on ebay before where I didn't get anywhere near where I wanted to sell something for but those were on smaller less expensive items. I'm just not in the gambling mood!!!

You're right Kurt it is a crazy game,I mostly buy on E bay not sell and a low starting bid seems to spark more interest in me, good reason for the reserve, but like I said earlier sometimes a high starting bid scares people off. If you don't sell it on E bay then you have that offer of $4,200.00 to look at. Still I wish you good luck. Greg.
