potential sale of burro trailer pennsylvania

I am possibly going to sell my burro trailer. I've never really used it. Plus I am living 400 miles away and dont see moving it to my current location anytime soon. I'll try to post pictures if I have any available or I'll just take some next time I visit. It is near allentown
Pa on the eastern side of the state.

external shot

Here is an outside shot. I will look for more after supper. Obviously it needs a good scrub down.
I'm not positive and I'm no where near it to measure (400 plus miles away) but I believe it appears to be the 17 foot model.

interior

These are some pictures of the interior. They aren't the best as I have a few things in the way inside. The trailer as far as I know has been used very minimally. I believe it has a ice box, not sure on the shower. I think it was a chemical toilet. It was given to me but I never took it anywhere. I believe there is a heater too. Does anyone know where to get a basic idea of value on one of these things. I couldn't even begin to recall what some of the stuff in the pictures is.

I can tell you, you'd get more for it if you'll clean it up and pull it out of the weeds. Just depends if more money is important to you.

Lol yeah I plan on it. I was going to jack it up and get underneath too and make sure it is all good there. Don't want to offer something up for sale that isn't worth selling or at least fully disclosed. I am just posting this until I get a chance to get back to Pennsylvania and clean it up. Seeing as there actually appears to be an interest then it will be worth spending time on. Otherwise I'd have just probably blocked it up and used it to stay in when home on leave. But we have other larger motorhomes that are just parked anyways so I can use them too.
Any suggestions on specific areas to check due to known issues?

Oh and only fair price for fair value is important.

What part of PA is this in?

Check the frame for rust-through, cracks, etc. and what condition everything is in under there. If you're not going to do a lot of work on it, I'm sure someone would grab a shell for the right price. DIY custom egg kit!

Thanks for the advice. I don't remember ever looking under there except maybe when I was a kid.
Eastern PA just north of Allentown South of the Poconos.

That's how I feel about my big camper now! Who knows what evil lurks under the Coachmen?

I worked down there for a while, just north of Beltzville. Spent the summer in a campground there. Nice area, except for the Turnpike running through the middle of it all.

Hey Kevin,

Just out of curiosity. What would a good shell with good interior but bad frame be worth? Any idea ? Anyone else? I might swing by the local rv place for me and ask them if they know where to get a value of it from. It'd be interesting to know. If there is anything major I'm pretty sure it will be the frame or mechanicals on the heater or something like that.

Here is a good place to start. Compare what you've got to what has sold recently.

RV dealers don't seem to know how much they are worth, I have found. This is a great place to sell one and the link Thomas gave you are the best I think, maybe Craigslist as well. The only thing about the site: Fiberglass RV's for sale, when you look at the solds...you only see the asking price and not the sold price. Yours looks like a good one if cleaned up, and most of us can use the money. Good luck I know it will sell.

Burro 17s typically don't command a premium over the smaller 13. The few later (different company) 14WBs are so rare as to have no bearing on the average price. Assuming good, undamaged shell, "good" interior with some systems working some not, rotten or cracked frame and more than likely running gear (torsion axle, brakes, wheels, tires) needing replacement, I'd think maybe 8-1500 where it sits in Silicon East. I wouldn't venture to guess what it would bring in CA. Way it looks in the pix, not even the naive and inexperienced are going to get sucked in without clearing the jungle and a lot of air freshener and if you catch a knowledgable trailer mechanic or flipper, most of the "good" will get demoted to "below average." Some of those infamous marine surveyor types with the awls and jack knives might show up also. Their valuation of this bird in a bush won't please you. If you get down to Allentown, better do enuf cleaning and familiarization so what you're selling is more than a set of hypothetical statements about condition.

Well at least it gives me a level of expectations and requirements. For example if in Pristine shape but would only be valued at say 500. Then it probably wouldn't be worth trying to sell as I could use it as a place to stay when home on leave. But if it is potentially worth a thousand or a few then it might be worth some time and elbow grease to clean up and inspect. Any recommendations on how to have it sitting for presenting to sell? Ie should I have it up on jackstands / leveling stands whatever you want to call them so they it would be easier for a buyer to look underneath? I'd be tempted to keep it but to be honest I think at this time I'm thinking more of an expedition style trailer or tent camping. Either way I haven't found time to do any of it so it is kind of mute.
Thanks all for the information and advice.

Rich
