Hi All - -
We restored a 1969 Aristocrat Lo-Liner and are looking to possibly sell it. We camped in it a couple of times and loved it, but a growing family requires a little more room! Would you experienced vintage trailer guys and gals help me put a price tag on it, please?
When I bought it, it was in rough shape - 20 years of sitting with broken glass, rain, animal filth, etc. We ended up retaining the skin, doors, windows, etc, but tore all the wood out and rebuilt it from the frame up, and then added back the hardware. It has all fresh wood construction, 2 year old appliances (swapped junky original appliances in REALLY rough shape - I tried but could not save them! - for new fridge, microwave, electric heater). All new cushions, new electric with inverter/breaker box for AC/DC power and charging, sink, water pump, portable gray water tank, stainless steel kitchen counter/back splash. I also have custom awning and portable AC/Heater unit (Climate Right, 5,000 BTUs) that I might want to sell with it, but I'm not sure if I want to hold on the them or not yet, so...
It is nicely done (in my humble opinion) and a lot of time has gone into it, but it is NOT original. It is built with the exact same layout as the original, but I've gone with all electric and made some obvious upgrades. With that in mind, I have no idea what I should ask for it. When I built it, it was a labor of love, not with re-sale in mind (I planned on keeping it forever!). So I know what I spent, but I also know that is not the only thing involved in setting a price.
Sooooo - I was hoping for some advice. I'd be happy to answer any questions, but would be very grateful for your thoughts on where to start. (I have a million pictures, but can only post 3 here, so if there is something else you want to see, let me know.)
Thank you so much in advance!
