ready to be restored and I need a new owner

I'm new to the site. We have a 1955 22' flying cloud. All original inside. We began removing insides to begin restoration starting with the floor but soon the kids' hobbies took over so were looking for a new home for the trailer. The dixie stove works and the marvel fridge couldn't keep a pop colder. I'm not sure what to ask? Iv'e been told 2000.00-2300.00. Does that sound about right? Good condition with minor floor flawes. Any input would help.

You are probably low on your price. I would get someone from the forums in your area who has volunteered to assess trailers for prospective buyers to look it over and give you a better opinion.
I recently paid $4K for a fairly orig. '57 FC but trailers are higher in Southern CA.

I agree with Murray about it sounding a little low. But if you want to sell it for that price we would be interested. We bought our 55 flying cloud a couple of months ago and we would love to have a dixie stove and nicer interior. We did not pay that much for ours but your never going to be comparing apples to apples in trailers this old. Yours is probably much more complete than ours. All of the little stuff adds up quickly when restoring and trying to find parts. The exact same year and model can vary greatly in perceived value depending on condition and usable parts.

Please post some pictures, inside and out!

Why not get rid of the kids instead? 55 Flying Clouds are really cool and rare.

Just my opinion
