2010 AS Flying Cloud 25FB w/ Hail Damage

Hi Everyone,

After getting some bad news on my mid-90's SOB (dry rot beyond reasonable repair), I'm in the market for a new trailer. I'd love to go with AS, but I don't want to break the bank, either.

I was able to find a new 2010 Flying Cloud 25FB with some very light hail damage posted for sale at the dealer in Eugene, Oregon. This is the exact floorplan I want, and I'm thinking I could get it for a significant percentage off MSRP, but I don't really know what it's worth.

From the few pictures available on the website, the hail damage looks very minimal, and it only affects the three panels across the front, above the window. I have a feeling I could live with the dents if I could get a decent enough deal, plus I'd have the benefit of it already having its first ding, so I wouldn't freak the first time I dented or scratched my new baby.

Any opinions on value? There are a few additional items I'd like to buy at the same time as the trailer; like a generator, solar panel, new brake controller, and a decent WD hitch. Ideally I'd love to get the whole package, fees and all, for $40K, but I really have no idea if this is even a remotely reasonable offer.

$40K is very unlikely. I'm thinking $42-45K would be a good deal for just the trailer.

To get some ideas of pricing I would go to other dealership web pages, look at their inventory and call. See what they are willing to accept on a non hail trailer that is on a lot that is the same as the one you want. Compare "Apples to apples". This should give you a pretty good idea where you should start your bidding on the hail damaged one you want.
Sometime the hail sales are not what you might think. There is a dealer in CO that had some units badly damaged left over from last year. The sales dept there would not give a good enough deal to make up for the damage, although they had already been paid by the insurance for their losses. They did however offer a clear title for the damaged units. That doesn't seem to be above board to me, but, I'm not an expert in how stuff is titled, or what is legal and what is not.
