1955 restored bubble

I have a 1955 bubble that was carefully restored and polished (last used 5 years ago to go to Alaska) What is the best way to find the current value of the trailer, should (if, in some insane moment) I decide to part with it?

Establishing a value on a carefully restored coach can be much more difficult than with an "as found" coach, particularly the smaller single axle Vintage coaches. A starting point might be to check R. J. Dial's website under Price vs. Condition.

Good luck with your research!

Greetings PW5000,
There was a 57 Bubble restored that sold on ebay recently. It brought $17,000 from active bidding. Item #4553464914. You have to realize who wants it and where they live..different money for different sections of this country, and the heat of the auction. But it's another piece of info you might consider.

You're not insane for wanting to know the value. You need to know it to get it on your homeowner's insurance, which I urge you to do. Document however you can it's value and take pictures and send them to your insurance agent. That way if a tree falls on it or it is stolen you're covered.
