Argosy 1977 20 Six Metre - What's a reasonable price?


I'm negotiating for an Argosy. I understand how to price cars, but not trailers.

Still, I realize my question is crazy. The "price" depends on so many variables, of course. I've been trying to get a sense of "comps" as you would in real estate, but...well, not enough data.

Still, there must be some way to do this semi-rationally. ??

Advice welcome!

Pay attention to the prices in the used trailer market.

The higher your expectations the fewer your options.

Depends on what you are going to have to do to the trailer to put it in shape. $10K + if in really good shape: axles, appliances, interior, plumbing, paint in good shape and usable right away. Bottom price? One that needs work immediately - my guess is $2500 - $3000. Keep in mind that the 6M Minuets bring higher prices because they are smaller, lighter, and easier to tow than the larger units. You might check to see if the floor is aluminum as that means the floor won't rot but you will need to install laminate flooring.
