Hi I just discovered this forum and really would love some advice, my husband and I are considering purchasing an RV/TT and we really would like to know if the price is fair or not. Currently we are looking at a 1992 Golden Falcon with 2 tip outs and sleeps 9 it is 37 ft and includes deck and shed, the current asking price is $16 000. It seems to be in very good condition and it has never been moved. We would keep it in the same park as well as we really like the area. Are there any sites available or ways to find out what a trailer is worth approximatly before you buy or sell one. (BTW) we are in Ontario/Canada
Thank you
Rachel

Welcome to the forum!!

This sounds like a Park Model (tip outs) and not a RV (slide outs). Best way to test prices is to shop the area and see what else might be out there. On-line price guides normally don't go back more than 10 years. Library might be one source of info. Also you are purchasing the deck, etc. That is costly to build and should be considered in the total package/price. Where we winter (S Texas) a lot of park models are on the market at any given time and by looking around you can find a price range and determine if the one you are looking at is priced fair or not. Also if you are going to have the unit moved, check into that cost. Plus if you are moving it into another park, check the dreaded "10 year" rule that the park might have. Also check the park the current trailer is in about the "10 year" rule they might have. Some parks have a rule that when an older unit is sold, it has to be moved out of the park thus adding a lot of cost to your purchase.

You also ned to check out NADA Guides to see if the pricing is in line or not.

If is has been setting for a number of years you need to check the tires (max of 5 years old), brakes and wheel bearings.

And thanks for visiting our site. Hope to see you back again.
