63 tradewind value after restoration

Im finishing up a floor replacement on my 63 T/W and wondered what I should ask for it in case I wanted to sell it. I put new floor plywood, 5/8 inch, new wood parque flooring, new plumbing, new toilet, new tires. and updated plugs. The exterior is in pretty good shape but not polished.
Any input is appreciated
Thanks

A whole bunch I hope. I am doing the same sort of thing on my 68. I do know that the prices in general are going up faster than I had thought. Of course, the downside is that the more they are worth, the greater the danger of them being stolen.

Thats a point I havent even thought of, it being stolen. I bought this from a guy out in florida that promised me it was in great condition. I couldnt look at it since Im on the west coast so I took his word for it, big mistake, the floor was rotted, panels were rotted. Thats what I get for believing this guy.
By the way, he owns a campground in Melton, Florida so BEWARE!!!
Anyway, like I said I will try to get some pics posted soon.

You may want to invest in a wheel hub lock and just sell it as a side item if/when you sell the coach. It will make it very hard to steal the trailer if one of the wheels is "booted"! Just a thought as otherwise your trailer is a potential target of thieves. Ed

Good idea, where can I find a hub lock?

There is a whole list of things a new potential owner would look at to figure what they would be willing to pay for your Trade Wind. Sounds like you have done some nice restoration but I would ask, when you replaced the floor did you pull the shell to do it right? While doing the floor, did you inspect and repair or refurbish the frame? How is the axle, electric or hydrolic? Windows, original glass? What stove and ref do you have. Anothe guide would be to check the classifieds here on the forum and other webiste including Craigs List. Pictures too will help.

You may also want to refer to this: Price vs Condition

Keep in mind, you won't get full-value of your time spent...and the more receipts and documentation you have the better.
