We have an older (1987) Holiday Rambler Alum-a-Lite travel trailer in excellent condition and we love it and at this time have no intention to sell it. The trailer sits along side our home and kind of out of sight----however----we always have people stopping to ask if its for sale, or leaving notes on our front door of the house. Even on the road during the months of July, August and Sept. we had quite a few asking if we were interested in selling it. Whats the big attraction-----its a well made trailer we know----back then it ranked right up there with the Air Streams, etc. Its a perfect length (26') for the two of us and has everything we need and tows like a dream----kinda hafta remind myself its on the back of the truck from time to time. Balanced perfect which I think is one of the selling points of airstreams. Anyway------Do People Like Older Travel Trailers or do they just think they can buy it cheap because its an older model???

Several reasons actually. HR's are known for the fine quality. Some people are looking for nice looking lower priced TT's. An older one that is nice on the outside catches the eye. An older HR in good condition is even better. Our 71 wasn't a Rambler but it sure did attract a lot of lookers.

We have the 86 HR alum-a-lite class A; we bought it in OR in April. Extremely well built. My cousin just bought a 86 HR alum-a-lite class C in perfect condition. You can see a picture at the thread below: "Holiday Rambler Info Needed", by Hemi.

You can get these HR RVS at a great price; we like the classic look inside as well as outside.

Yes, we have had people comment on ours but no one has ask us to sell.

We may install a more recent 454 big block in our unit with EFI and at least a 4 speed tranny. It would then be very competitive with new units.
