Here’s a post in response to a question I received from Joe S., regarding a vintage 1973 trailer that was recently listed on eBay. Joe wanted to know if the vintage camper was still for sale. I remembered seeing it, it had appeared briefly on this website in the vintage trailer eBay post. (You can see that post here: Vintage Campers ) I thought there must be a way to find out if it sold or not. It had been listed by one of my favorite sellers, and I knew if I dug around a bit in my emails I’d find old correspondence, but I wanted to think smarter, not harder! So I did a search of completed listings on eBay Motors, and included the word “vintage” in the category for “RV’s and Campers”. Eureka! I struck gold! Toward the bottom of the list of search results for 37 items, all listings that have ended, I found the listing I was looking for. And sorry, Joe, it did sell. (“Vintage Camper – Small Shasta Travel Trailer”). This 1973 Vintage Retro Trailer sold on January 22, 2009 for only $809.99 on eBay. There were 7 bids. When I created this list it made a very interesting study in blue book values for vintage campers and trailers. eBay is an excellent source of information to find the current sales prices for all types of recreational vehicles. I saved the search, and you can see it here: CLICK HERE: EBAY VINTAGE CAMPERS AND TRAILERS (Completed listings) So that’s my tip for today, Joe, and for everyone that needs to set the blue book value of a vintage camper or trailer – search eBay on the eBay Motors site, and go to “Advanced Search”, which you’ll find just to the right of the regular search button. Under the “What are you looking for” you’ll see a box that you can scroll through. Click on “Rv’s and Campers”. Then you next click on the little downward arrow under “Type”. You’ll see you can select from among the following: Fifth Wheel, Folding Camper, Motorized class A, Motorized class B, Motorized class C, Toy Hauler, Travel Trailer, Truck Camper, or other. This covers a pretty wide range of recreational vehicles for sale on eBay. You can also experiment a bit with the “What are You Looking For” menu, selecting “Other Vehicles and Trailers”, and repeat the process of looking at the dropdown menu under “Type”. This is an excellent way to determine the blue book value of vehicles that are no longer llsted on the Nada site online directory (free!) of camper and trailer prices. Just out of curiosity for Joe, I also did a search of vintage trailers that are actively being listed, and found 9 current listings on eBay for vintage trailers. I saved that search too, and here it is: CLICK HERE: CURRENT EBAY AUCTIONS VINTAGE TRAILERS Do you have any other favorite places to check the blue book value of vintage campers and trailers?
