Not to state the obvious but, it is virtually impossible to tell you what the value might be with so little information. The only thing to say is that it is worth whatever someone might pay for it!

Check on Ebay, and find what is being asked for similar units. Although that doesn't mean they will get that figure. Eddie Elk.

After you get everything working, it will be worth about what you will have invested. There are a lot of older coaches around the country just sitting. Fix it up and use it. Once you are at a camp ground or out in the boonies, the RV experience is the same. You will have the same camping experience as the guy that has thousands more invested. Use it a few times and it will have been worth more than what you have into it.

There is actually an authority for these kind of questions...it's not perfect, but it is a starting point:
Motorhomes Price, Motorhomes Value & Motorhomes Trade In | NADAguides | Motorhomes Price Specs

It will give you low and average RETAIL (that is the price that a dealer would be asking). This is NOT private party sales or trade-in value. And be aware that trade-in is usually lower than wholesale.

NADA needs the sales location zip-code ('cuz Southwest prices are different from the Northeast), the model number, and any non-standard equipment add-on's for calculation....give it a try - it's free.

But, I know that a 87 Bounder in dealer prep condition (meaning clean and everything works) will be priced around $3000 -$5000....so, actual sale at a dealership would be around $2000-$4000.

Best luck

Dont wanna dump a bunch of money into this one. Too old and to me not worth it. If all else fails ill remove the motor and trans and scrap the rest. Know a lot of people looking for big blocks. Especially Chevy's workhorse 454. Been a mechanic for many years. Here is what im looking at for my real, actual roadie R.V.

Target the Tailgaters...they love the older units because thats all they use them for. You could also trade it however it's all relative as the dealers will probably offer you a good price for the unit however you will most likely pay more for the unit you are buying compared to a private sale.

Another question when i acquired this rv the title was a duplicate. Or more like IS a duplicate. Everythings legit on it except one thing. Mileage, it says 80,000 odometer reads 60,000 i know the odometer works because driving home it was tickin like it should. I know where the gentlemen lives, as well as his cell number i went directly to his house for the purchase. Did he just lose the title and stop in and guess on mileage while he was there????? Vin number matches so theft is not an issue. Just wondering if when i take this in to title if its going to be a big deal or am i worried for nothin?

If most everything works as it should, an older MH is worth a lot more than somebody is willing to pay for it. If you are not a "keep up with the Jone's down the street" kind of guy, but your girlfriend is, I'd get a new girlfriend myself.
