So I was able to convince Progressive that their offer was unacceptable and they agreed - while they still don't seem to understand how length of trailer dictates different pricing they did find 2 different 22' Argosy trailers from 1979 that they used for comparison and averaged the price bringing back an offer nearly at a what we paid for it (even after deductible) while still waiving the salvage price on the trailer (guessing in their regular world 22' of vinyl trailer is about the same as 19'
Any thoughts from the peanut gallery on if this is probably as good as it's going to get?
For any future readers of this post I just did some homework in my reply to my adjuster that based on the trade in pricing provided by 2 different Airstream dealers I figured out they were probably using NADA and that ALL 1977 Airstreams had the same price in the NADA and that seemed odd since not all 1979 Ford vehicles had the same price. To further illustrate my point I submitted a Pre-Owned 2004 Airstream Safari currently at Sale Pending status with Arbogast RVs in Ohio (an authorized Airstream Dealer). It has a marked down price of $29,977 while at NADA they list the following: Average retail base unit at $5880 - that is a mighty wide chasm to bridge. I think that pretty much negated the NADA pricing and the dealer responses forcing them to figure out a better way to determine the value.
