I think they used them for target practice, at least the insides!

You can't go into something like this with very high expectations. They are trashed but fixable if you can do the work. You are getting a Casita in name only. The shell and frame are there, 2 of them have titles, 2 of them don't. Some states are easier to obtain titles than others. They need tires, maybe axles. They need interior work, maybe electronics and plumbing. The most expensive parts, the fridges and air conditioners are gone. It all depends on what someone wants to do.

Thought I'd bump this in case anyone is interested. It's becoming a horse race heading into the final stretch tomorrow.

I'm feeling pretty good right now. One of them is up higher than I paid for mine at a base sale and it had all the parts except the propane tanks. I still think those aren't a bad deal to a good do-it-yourself person though.
Does anyone know what the two in Maryland went for a couple weeks ago?

If you click on the actual photos of the list it shows that the second one Lot 11271 actually has a bid of $2900.55 on it although the summary shows it at 2700.

The last 2 just closed at $2810.00 and $2720.00. Holy Cow!
I hope someone here got them. I sure like to see what they do with them.
Anyway don't blame me I was just the messenger posting that they were there.

Wow! A cleanup with cheap fridge and cheap AC will put them over 4k. The auction fee is 10% and the papers cost $60. I wonder what they think the resale is on them? And this doesn't include new tires, cushions, vent covers, etc. YIKES!!!!

Man they went a lot higher than I would have ever paid! I hope the ones that were in Maryland went for a more reasonable amount. When I posted the original referral I thought that someone could get a good deal but the "auction fever" took over.

I was bidding on them and there was a bid history available. I kept checking it to see who was bidding and the same person was bidding on all of them. I believe they ended up with 3 of them. Had to be a dealer or a rental company that had already made up their minds they were buying them period. You can find a better deal in the classifieds without all the hassle.
