When the ad says "needs a little TLC" you need to add about 10 to 15 thousand dollars to the asking price. Probably more.

Smile TLC 10k

That's just under what I paid for my 345
My motor home also needed some "TLC"
I only gave it "C" and it's cost me 2k
Another 3k and it would be in perfect mechanical cond
Another 10k and I supose the exterior would be perfect.
I see in the picture this one is missing the same top marker light mine was, if your going to replace it YA might as well switch over to cooler temp, less amperage drawing led's there's your first $100... And so it begins

Sage advice from someone that's in the know. As with any Airstream project of any vintage; take what you think you're going to spend and double it and while you're at it, double how long you'll think it will take to do the project.

Just to replace the weep vent hole covers on my 310 will cost me $200.00+. It adds up fast, especially on moho's.

P&S Trailers in Ohio quoted me $13,000.00 US to restore my 310's exterior.

Cheers
Tony

Spot on Tony. Double it and add 10% for good measure. Im trying to keep my total investment at or below $20,000 but who knows when its said and done to my liking. There are just some things that you really dont have a choice in doing. Two grand off the top for tires! (Oh ya, check the ball joints too). Make it go, make it stop, take care of all safety related issues the best you can. Then its up to each individual as to how far they want to take the resto/remodel.

I blew through the 20G's barrier the very day I bought mine after paying the tax man his share. As I have stated before it's not about the money. Heck I'm actually thinking about purchasing a 1968 26' Overlander to restore as a possible wedding present for my kid someday.

It's a freak'in disease I'm telling ya, a disease.

Good to see you still have your sense of humour Mike.

Cheers
Tony

...and anyone that has followed your posts about Dadstoy would understand that it's probably worth the $30k asking price

Thanks Brad! Well if that day ever came, I would hope to at least get the $20K+ I've put into parts and shop labor. I'm thinking it would be too much to ask for an additional 30K+ of my own labor I've put into it!

Nothing wrong with asking for the additional $30k, the issue is whether you would get it or not

Many airplanes are sold today with their value basically determined by the time left (in the buyer's opinion) on the radios and engine(s). You can buy a nice twin Beech with old radios for about $10,000 plus $80,000 for overhauling engines and props. In classic mohos it's how much accumulated grief you have to pay to chase out. I paid $11,000 for a very nice 1983 turbo diesel 310 with a running but very sick engine. In 8 years I have spent about $35,000 on it, and it's in good shape on the road again. Everything that I've fixed has stayed fixed, but man there is a lot of it.

In April 2015 I bought a 97 LY diesel pusher with 45k miles. After two expensive trips to Freightliner for repairs to transmission and sterring, I still have less than $30k invested. Part of my repair list was to replace the original 1997 tires and shocks.
