"like new" is an opinion which the buyer may not agree on, just be aware of that.

You will only get what a buyer is willing to pay. Nothing extra.

Hi: Losangeles... Selling price is what is asked... buying price is what is offered... and when the two have beat each other up enough, a deal is what is reached!!! Alf

Not really. Most Casitas sell in less than a week. Many (mine included) in less than 1 day.

As others have said, bottom line is what is the current market value for the trailer. We sold our 2011 17' Casita Spirit Deluxe, also in excellent condition, and with most of the options for $14,500 about 7 months ago, if that helps you at all. The buyer came from a couple hundred miles away to get it, as there aren't a lot of them in Missouri either.

and remember 4 wheel drive vehicles sell better when it is winter and campers sell better in the spring and summer

Used trailer sales

Good luck on selling your Casita. I think the previous posters have covered most of the common talking points that come up when used equipment is bought and sold. Personally I have always come up with an asking price before I advertised and a this is what I would take price. Not everyone is interested in pristine condition. For many it is location, time of the year, features and options and overall practicality for their application. As several have mentioned, you can ask anything, finding someone willing to pay, when there is ease of comparison in other units for sale, allows the potential buyer to learn the market and do some comparison shopping. Not to knock your trailer but used Scamps, Casitas and Escapes are not viewed as unique or rare so you can only push the buyers so far before they look elsewhere. Good luck on your endeavor.

I dunno Dave. I'd say they're pretty "rare" when you look around the typical campground. On our way both to and from the Escape rally this year, we probably saw a total of 4 fiberglass trailers, vs thousands of stickies - over 2200 miles each way.

Robert,
What I meant was the fact that there's a few late model good, non-vintage
Fiberglass trailers for sale every week. You can find them without looking too far, or too hard but maybe you have to go far to get one. They are as you you say, a small percentage of the total number of campers out there. On Thursday afternoon we drove a Corps of Engineers campground to kill some time with my 8 year old grandson. I told him I'd give him a quarter if he spotted a fiberglass camper. He said " a quarter? What can you buy with a quarter? It's not worth looking."' Made me feel like a cheap old man, which I am and knew we would t see one anyway. As an only grandson he does ok, believe me.'
