Question What did you pay for your A/S?

Since we can't tell/see how we polled, I thought this would be a great way to see what the avg A/S goes for.

Please feel free to openly discuss, as this will only help us all with future purchases.

Thanks-John

Of course, for those of us with vintage, or near vintage, units the purchase price must be understood as something in the nature of a down payment!

Mark,

Good point! Maybe that would be a good poll for the future.

Poll: After purchasing your A/S, how much did you put into it to get it to your satisfaction?

John

Here's a "how much have you spent" poll, that floated around for awhile:

How much will you spend this year on restoration, maintenance & upgrades?

cost AS/upgrades

I only paid $3900 for my trailer. I don't have a real good idea of how much more I'm willing to put into it. It's fun to see some of the things that the rest of you have done and allow my creativity to be stimulated. I have noticed that some of you spare no expense; and some of you take pride in doing things as economically as possible. When I initially brought the trailer home and found all the problems I had I was convinced that I had been hosed. In retrospect, perhaps it wasn't so bad. My son and I have had a good time with the repairs that we have done so far. And my wife is enjoying planning the decorating. Thanks again to all of you for your great ideas and you're sharing.

We paid $3500, however as j54mark stated, that was only the price of entry.

We have put about that much or more into our renovation/facelift so far. So when it comes to vintage, you either pay alot more up front for an already restored one or you start off with a small "investment" and have more "payments" along the way at your own pace...

All in all, if I had it to do over, I wouldn't change a thing!

Shari

I guess your own labor gets booked under 'charitable contributions'
If I put in an average of 5 hours/week for the last two years, times a low shop labor rate of $60.-/hr, the total would be 31,200.-
Hmmm.....
