Help pricing Argosy to sell

Hello Everyone,

I have a 1978-ish, 26'? Argosy TT that has been setting for 15 years. My parents (now deceased) were original owners. It has front sofa, with rear bath and twin beds. The frig blows breakers when hooked up; the tires need to be replaced and rear window is in place but shattered. Other than that, it is anyone's guess. I was interested in refurishing it but . . .

Someone has offered to buy it but I don't have a clue how to price it. ANY information would be much more than I now have.

Thanks,
LakeCityBoop
Alabama

Sitting is just bad for anything mechanical. There is a good chance that the motors for blowers will not be long for the world or will need to be disassemble and cleaned up and a lot of seals will fail shortly after its pressed back into service. It will need wheel bearing packed and brakes checked. Disuse also means that if any leaks had developed that they went unnoticed for many years if the coach was not stored under a shelter.

www.vintageairstream.com has a pricing guide. Its pretty good and a good place to start.

Going, going, gone...

If you are selling on Ebay you will find that the more complete a description that you can give the better. Selling stuff in "unknown condition" leads most people to assume it's broken. A pair of examples are up for sale right now. In 2 separate auctions for 1973 Argosys. One 24' and one 26'. The one description is long and detailed...A recently used camper the mechanical condition is well known and near perfect. Yet the other camper has sat for a long time, needs a few obvious items and the condition of the mechanical systems is unknown to the current owner. Not surprisingly with 2 days left in each auction the high bids are very different: $5,100 and $1,600. Also, you can check the "already sold" history on Ebay for more comparisons.

Good luck,

Steve
