For insurance purposes, we valued our 1973 Amerigo
by going online to Craigslist and other trailer sales sites and taking down info for "similar" trailers. I tried for a wide variety of makes, but stuck to similar sizes. We agreed with our insurance co. to value it at $10,000 after Paul completely redid it.
Were we to sell it, I think we'd list it at that, expecting offers might lower it some. It's not the best deal out there, but it is a fairly rare item, and all-electric. Also not the most popular, but those who want it no-propane, low-tech and easy, it'd be perfect.
For non-serious, nosy inquiries, I hope Paul is prepared to say my "conversational price" of $20,000 so if some rich person falls in love at a campground or intersection, we can make hay while the sun shines.
Best of luck with this. It surprised me how much these things can be worth even if they have had some issues.
Many buyers are perfectly prepared to do a little work on them. Some really want a financial bargain, but these trailers are a little harder to get than something with dozens on every sales lot and in all the local newspaper want ads.
This isn't a bad forum to advertise on...and there are many others. IMHO, do that price search and don't lowball yourself right off the bat. That can come when you're desperate to sell.
Now is still a reasonable time to sell with some great camping time left in the summer/autumn.
Some great camping time left: Example: Aerial photo of the first weekend in September (check online to be sure) Mt. Baker/Lynden vintage trailer rally
. We're on the right near the big tree. True fact. Sorry no arrow or circle!
