Establishing a selling price

Hi folks-
I just purchased a motorhome so I need to sell my 30 ft 1994 Excella 1000.

The bad news: My Airstream has hail damage

The good news"
New Dometic AC top unit and inside control unit.
New Dometic refrigerator
New Tires with less than 4,000 miles and bearing recently repacked
New Atwood furnace Ignitor control unit and blower motor
New Atwood water heater new gas regulator
New Propane tank auto switch over regulator.
New Thetford Aqua magic V toilet
New Drapes for front galley and kitchen
New carpeted bedroom and tiled bathroom floors.
Plywood in good shape not rot.
Zip Dee Awning in like new condition.
Unit has solar power with three 100 watt panels.

I'm trying to come up with an asking price.
Photo of exterior attached.

Thanks in advance!!
Mark

Start by checking out ebay, Craigslist, RV Trader, etc., and having a look at what comparable trailers are going for. The Ebay "completed" listings are especially valuable, as you can see what the actual sales price was. Now, does your hail damaged trailer have a salvage or rebuilt title? Knock of 25% if so. If not, did your insurance company write you a check for the hail damage? If so, subtract that amount from whatever you come to as a "market" price.

Of all the "new" stuff you list, I would say that it makes little difference in the value of the trailer. When someone buys a trailer, the expectation is that everything works. They take deductions for everything that does not. The only thing that I would say should count as a "bonus," and drive up your asking price slightly is the solar panels--and then you still have to gamble that your customer cares to have solar.

The hail damage is potentially your biggest negative. The front of the endcap looks like it has some dramatic dents, you may have to go with a large deduction (again...25% may be appropriate). You can always start high, and see what people are willing to pay. It is easier to drop your price than it is to raise it.

good luck!

Thanks for responding to my questions.

The Airstream has a clear title. Other than the hail damage it is in great shape.
I've seen '94 Excella 1000s selling from as low as $10k and as high as $19k depending on condition. I'm thinking about listing it on this page, Ebay, Craigslist and perhaps RVtrader.

Dreams, I have quoted Softshell in hopes he will be notified by email of your question.

Is the trailer still for sale?

Good luck all!

Peter

PS -- Looks like the trailer is still for sale, or in the process . . . --
