There are unscrupulous sellers and unscrupulous buyers. But I'll bet you there's more buyers' remorse than sellers' regret in the FGRV market. What do you all think?

I think the opposite is likely true- especially for sellers that see the trailer they just sold for "X" dollars to some po' sweet little old man being sold two weeks later at twice the price they let it go for.

That has got to rankle...

Oh yeah.. That happened to me once when I sold a car. The next day the guy had it in his front yard asking way more than he paid yours truly. Mind you, I was just relieved to get the danged thing out if MY yard

Eggsactly! It may work just fine for stick builts, but worthless and badly misleading when it comes to all molded towables. What's even worse is insurance company's that try to use it when there's an accident. Hence the For Sale archives here and other all molded forums/sites.

BTW: What's a Helite Art? Does NADA work for your trailer?

This was the bible for banks to use when giving a loan.
Had the wholesale price, Retail Price and Loan value.
Now days there are several companies, Kelly Bluebook, etc
However, the dealers now carry a Black Book to look this stuff up in.

Good reminder at least for me that I should be copying down camper for sale and sold advertisements as proof of value in case my insurance company needs my help in figuring out what to pay me in the event of a claim.

Would hate to leave them with no good information to base their obligation on.

I have to do this pretty well every year in order to maintain my declared replacement cost policy on my trailer that I pay them extra for each year. As each year they want to discount the value of the trailer by X so % as they do with on sticky trailers they cover. I also have to give them photos of the exterior and interior for their files each year.

I know someone who's bank turned them down on the purchase of a used fiberglass trailer due to the bank using NADA as a guide for the loan value. The party went into the bank and sat down with the loans manager and a laptop for 5 min on Fiberglass-rv-4sale.com and the loans manager changed their mind!

Dumb Question?

Perhaps I am missing something, but how does anyone know what a trailer actually sold for? I looked at the classified archives, and most indicate somewhere what the seller's asking price was. We seem to believe that most sold at or near the asking price, especially if the sale happened quickly. I'm not questioning that that's often the case, but it's not proof for a bank or insurance company. The other site, fiberglass-rv-4sale, seems to be the same.

Does anyone know something I don't? Has anyone had experience with a total-loss insurance claim?

Our ParkLiner was not in NADA, but I flooded the credit union with information (i.e., new costs, FGRV for sale prices, etc) and they ended up willing to finance more than we needed!

It helps to have good credit.

Frank, I was thinking more about insurance claims than loans. A bank making a loan on a FGRV has something to gain from accepting a higher value (more interest) and minimal risk (in a good-credit situation), but an insurance company facing a claim has everything to lose.

I do have insurance on my trailer, and in the event of a loss, I would like to be able to replace it. After reading Roger and Carol's earlier posts, I got to wondering exactly what documentation I should be collecting (especially because, as the main point of the thread gets at, prices are rising).

Good point, I need to give this some thought too!
