I paid around $1800.00 for my 1975 Argosy 24 (In reality 20'). Plus registration and license plates, full coverage insurance costs me $13.00 a month with State Farm on a S.F. estimated replacement cost of $5500.00.
The prices are estimates, I cant remember the exact costs without looking them up.
It had no interior except for the bathroom, which took about a $100.00 to get back to functional condition.
The exterior was already stripped down to the aluminum so paint wasn't an issue outside. I repainted the interior for about $50.00.
Aftermarket, carpet, new interior lights, aftermarket cabinets, couch, etc has run me another $800 - $1000.00. I reallly want original interior, but original cabinets are hard to come by. (apparently)
A new inverter/converter and Gell battery was around $200.00. (ebay)
4 new Bias-Ply tires set me back around $300.00.
Brake away switch, $14.00.
Replacement 2 burner cooktop $47.00 plus shipping.
New Water heater, depends on ebay prices. They vary greatly in price. I currently have an electric water heater.....but if you don't have 50 amp service at the park, your trailer may not run an electric water heater. Although if it will, the water heater can do double duty as your fresh water storage.
New Roof AC/Wth heat strip, new one on ebay..again prices vary from time to time $500.00.
