We have this 1988 Dodge Travelaire we want to sell, but would like some opinions on it's value. It seems to be a rare motorhome.. I can't find much information online about it, or even a picture of this exact model. It has all original body and motor in very good condition for it's age.. only a few minor rust spots and starts up and runs great! We have it listed at $7500 obo and we are getting lots of interest... I'm just curious at to what it's actually worth. Any comments or ideas of it's value are appreciated

Rare RV's

This is a class B Motorhome. They don't have as much value as class A and class C Motorhomes. It's basically a conventional van they tried to convert into a Motorhome. I've seen many of these. But van versions don't work to well because they are so small and there is sitting room only compared to a regular Motorhome. It you try to stand up you'll bang your head in them. You might get as much $4500 for it. But a van RV has less value than a regular Motorhome Unfortunantly since it lacks the breathing room and living space of a regular RV. For example, ceiling that are 5 feet high rather than 8 feet high. These are a good weekend camper but won't work for the full time RVier.


1979 Dodge Tioga Class C 24 foot. 1987 Fleetwood Bounder 34 Foot.

Sorry, been awhile just got back from a little road trip
The rig is a 1982 Pace Arrow by Fleetwood, P30 454 Chev big block, Just turned 52,000 miles
Thanks poster's for your compliments,
Its a Magic Chef same for the Microwave. I don't think its (Oven/Broiler) has ever been used not a crumb inside or a stain. It came with a broiler pan that was never used still in packaging . We used the oven once last year for making a pizza. This time a chicken hotdish, then I made a Egg bake the next morning "Yum" and used a 13x9 casserole pan for both meals.(will share recipes) I think you could add a few small casserole pans besides its a pretty deep oven. Worked flawlessly. We didn't need to use the broiler, both dishes browned perfectly.
The burners on the stove can be turned way down more than the GE stove @ the S&B's.
No electronic firing (match or grill lighter) ( best bet)

See Ya out there,
Tim

I was just @ the local CW yesterday and a guy was looking at the new led Tear drop marker lights they had just installed on his older Airstream Trailer, looked "Magnificent" really nice and they were brite even on a sunny afternoon around 2 PM . I plan on changing mine on the 82 with leds like these Have you though about LED's?

In this particular case any holiday rambler is valuable. Anything with the Holiday Rambler name always sells for more money. Wish someone would have mentioned that before.

1988 Dodge Travelaire | RVs, motorhomes | Kapuskasing | Kijiji
We traded our RoadTrek a couple of years ago (same era Dodge chassis as yours). Camping World put it on their lot at $13K and it sold in 48 hours. While they're small and not ideal for long term use, they make great travel vehicles and overnighters. But the biggest advantage is that they can be parked in the driveways and carports of communities that have restrictions against traditional RVs. That makes them a hot commodity in a lot of retirement communities.

I had redone the exterior of ours to make it a bit more stealth. Debadged, destriped, limo tint on all glass, dual exhaust w/ Flowmasters, alloy wheels, Michelins and new silver paint. The interior remained stock, but I built it to match our style and it appealed to younger buyers.

OK, so how is this for a rare combination. An '83 Revcon, with an even just a rare PC800 on the rear.


I started looking around and realized I don't have that many pictures of the front. Here is one on our most recent vacation.

I suppose what is most rare is that it is probably the most modified Revcon out there. While dropping a 502 in a Revcon has become somewhat common, its a little more rare with MPFI, and even more rare with the 4L85e conversion. Some of the other stuff is converted to disc brakes in the rear, converted to except Koni FSD shocks, machined bellcranks for tapered roller bearings and a highly modified front differential. There is a whole host of little things to, so many, I can't remember anymore. I'm guessing the coach has close to 200K miles on it, half of which are mine. And yes, it gets used year round.

Always liked the Pacific Coast. An '89 w/15K miles showed up on our local Classifieds yesterday for $1500. Tempting.

I am looking to convert all the lighting in my RV to led. I prefer it over standard incandescent lighting that consume far to much power.

I am also looking to convert all the lighting in my RV to LED. Consumes far less power than the standard incandescent lights, and it's much easier on the eyes.
