There is someone near me that has a 16' Side Dinette Casita for sale. The owner isn't going to be here yet, with the title, but the parents think it is a 1989. They are asking $4,000 for it.
I have seen the inside, and it is very clean, upholstery is in great shape, kind of a powder blue/gray, and has a microwave, refrigerator, shower, a/c, bag awning, etc. I expect it will need new tires.
Is this about right for one that age ? Penny, TX

The Blue Book value is around $2,400

but I don't know, I would pay that for a clean Casita in good shape in a heartbeat. There is a guy out here with a '93 Bigfoot, which has a Blue Book Value of around $5,000, and he still wants $12,500 , which is about $7,500 over the Blue Book Value, so I guess $1,600 over doesn't sound so bad to me.....

If it's in really good shape that sounds like a deal.

I am looking for a 14' wide body burro. Any thoughts about price range for a decent one. Thanks...Jon

Penny, mine is an '89. I have done several structural upgrades to it, and I have no idea what I would price it at. Which really doesn't help you at all, does it? IF it doesn't need any work, then the price might be okay. Unless they added it, the '89 does not have a grey water tank but is plumbed (or mine is, at least) so that a blue tote tank can be used. Unless it has been raised, the ground clearance on it will be rather low. This may or not be an issue for you.

There are some pluses as well as minuses to them, but I have to tell you that I absolutely adore my '89. Those that know me are tired of hearing about me looking at new trailers. I'd love to have a new one, but I just can't seem to part with mine and I have yet to find one that I like better.

IF it's in really good shape (inside and out) then I think that $3500 would be an good price. IF you love it and $4,000 is in your budget and it's had no modifications to it, then I'd say okay. Remember, though, at that age, you may have some cash outlay and need to do some repairs. That's just a fact of life.

If I were to list my '89 today, I'm sure I would list it for more than what they are asking. However, I did put on a new axel, 14" tires, reinforced the frame, raised it, added a welded spare rack to the front, AGM battery, upgraded the converter with charge wizard, and other things. I'll never get my money out of it, but I don't regret spending it either.

Without looking at it, I really can't say, but I hope this might help as a guideline.
