Hey Shana,

I did some searching on the internet to see what Beelines are out there for sale. Of course everyone I found is in terrific shape or just completely refurbished. These people are pricing their Beelines at $7500 to $9500. I did locate 2 that had the same spiel, but these Beelines were $1200 and $1500. Figure on replacing 1/3 of the trailer due to rot from leakage. With these campers being made 1959-1969 (I believe, but I am probably wrong, LOL) you are dealing with a classic-vintage type of trailer. As Rich mentioned, low ball the trailer at say $500. If there is no title available, really low ball him with say $200. You get into it and the damage is too extensive and you want to bail you will get that much back in scrap value.You can always go up, but it is tough to go lower.

I personally would not purchase such a trailer because I am physically unable to tackle that kind of remodel. But if you feel confident at handling the task, there is tons of how to  and other information that will help you and there are lots of good folks here that will always answer any question(s).

Now with all of that being said, you will have to decide how much you want to pay for the trailer. I have tried to give you some guidelines, but it is ultimately up to you. I will add one last comment. Go through the trailer with the idea that it is completely trashed and you are looking for any saving graces. When you start to talk money you are in control, you hit him will ALL the problems you found and that is why you will only go so much. All he can do is say no and you start your search again. Not an uplifting thought, but in these cases it is you putting out all the money and time to repair it, and your time has value.  Good Luck and please keep us posted.

Hi Shana, with out seeing pictures it would be hard to put a price on it but I will tell you that having to replace the water damaged areas is definitely a bargaining chip in your favor. I would do some research on what value one in decent condition would bring and deduct from that. When you look at water damage in most cases there is a lot more damage than what you can see on the surface and can be costly both in monetary terms and time investment. That being said if you have the skill set or even if not but have a strong desire to get your hands dirty then value is added because it can be very rewarding to see a project through. My thought is to throw out a small number and see what it gets you. I hope some one with restoration experience jumps in and has a better answer. good luck with your maybe project.

I am looking at buying an older Bee line camper, owner not sure of age. Can someone give me advice of how much I should pay for a camper that the back needs replaced because of water damage. I think it may be from late sixties has bathroom an bunk in it. I am new at this but excited for the adventure.
