Hmmm I thought 55,000 was realistic The way I figure it if someone wants to buy my trailer, I have to have something to replace it - I figure that would be about what I would spend on a new one. I'm not to excited about rebuilding another one - so I have to get a new one.

So my 58 is for sale - $55,000.

Plus you're doing them a favor, at great inconvenience to yourself..I think you should bump it up to $60k!

I think that would be a good even trade. I wouldn't believe folks in your area(Elyria) would be after something like that. Of course things change its probabley different since I have been away 28yrs from that area. I would put a sign on it like someone said FOR SALE $ 55,000.00 then go to Lowes or HD and get some more NO TRESPESSING signs Bigger this time.
Hope to see U on the road

Yea that might work - hmmm yea as Stephanie said - have to consider the inconvience factor - so 60 might work - hmmm mark - 26x2500 = $65,000 - that would give me enough left over to buy a beer to cry in that I just sold my cool vintage trailer for a new one.... awww but at 65 I might get over it...

Imagin living here. If I step outside someone will stop and ask about the trailers. So I started cleaning up and selling them and have made enough to pay for the four I have now.
I once got a great deal, just up the road, by stoping and asking about the old trailer out behind the barn.
Also works both ways. People will stop and tell me about trailers they have seen.

Since I was the one who paid for the restoration of your trailer, I think your numbers are flawed. I don't remember spending that much!

As a thought, you could give them Stephanie's contact info since she's hoping to sell hers and move to Darol's TW........I realize it's a long ways away but who knows, she does live in one of the more beautiful places on the continent so it's not an ugly place to go to when you are buying an Airstream

Just a thought.....

As for the knocking on the door we get that a lot when we are camped. It doesn't matter if we are at the table eating, I'm busy beating Donna at crib , or having a snooze, folks just seem to need to see and ask how much.

Be careful though by putting a ridiculous price on it. I did that with my Corvette roadster and the guy whipped out his wallet - he'd come prepared with a big deposit. Had I not been with my wife I'd of said no but you can guess the rest - she wanted another 70 Chevelle.

You are right though, if people are that interested you don't want to offend them. It is a compliment in a round about way about your obvious good taste in trailers.

I would definitely keep it locked and put up more signage. Also, one that says caution, the dogs bite. That has a tendency to keep people away.

Richard,

If you are really in a generous mood I'll send you my bank info - they accept direct deposits. I'm in need of some polished tanks, 30 pounders would be fine .

Gosh, you really are a nice guy. Who'd of thought we just needed to ask. Thanks for the coaching Ken.

Since everyone seems to have their hands out and you're in a giving mood - we'd just like to have an Airstream.
