Price for a used 1984 13' Scamp

Hi there. There is a guy on Craigslist selling a 13' 1984 scamp for $13,400. I looked on Nada Guides for RV's and their estimated value is $4500. My question is what do you guys think is a fair price for a 13' 1984 Scamp in pretty good condition? I'm new to this so I really appreciate your opinions! I really don't want to pay $13,400 for a trailer that is 36 years old, but if that's a fair price in the molded fiberglass world then I will consider it.

thanks again!

Kim

In my opinion it is too high for that year. I think it has an ice box and no A/C and possibly no heater (can't recall), but I think that one is a few thousand overpriced.

I know they're hard to find, but newer ones will come up for around the same price and have more options.

Well if the trailer came with 2 Battle Born LiFe batteries, 400 watts of solar panels, a complete Bogart Engineering Trimetric solar charge/battery monitoring system, top of the line Progressive Dynamics Converter and a top of the line hard-wired surge protection device I would still say it is over priced.

Seriously, check the sold prices here and on fiberglass-rv-4sale.com to see what they are going for.

Before you spend that kind of money on a 35+ y/o trailer, find out how much a new one is. While you have to wait about 1 year to get it, I am pretty sure a trailer configured like the '84 would be less that $13,400.

Keep looking! The quality then would have to be 10X better than the quality of new built Scamps now to come anywhere near that price. 10X!

He's not selling, he's asking. And he is asking for a ridiculous amount. Selling? Its not going to happen. NADA guide is low, which is common for the molded FG trailers, but not that far off. In very nice condition, $7,000 +/-.

I recently posted a couple of other unrestored, unremarkable 13’ Scamps priced at around $12K. I suspect a few opportunistic folks with old Scamps sitting around are hoping to cash in on the current short supply and slapping very high asking prices on them. With free classified ads, they have nothing to lose.

They might even hit the jackpot and snare a desperate sucker. But you’re not one. I’d be prepared to wait a while for sanity to return. Keep looking certainly, and keep a cool head.

Original purchase prices are interesting, but current value is based on supply and demand. Right now that’s seriously out of equilibrium.

UPDATE: Price for a used 1984 13' Scamp

He just lowered the price to $11,900. The truth is even if he lowered to $7000, I wouldn't buy it. I'm looking for a trailer 20 years old or newer.

From what I've researched...that's too expensive.
