Is it just me......?????

Post by nralifer » Sat Jun 17, 2017 10:33 pm

Is it just me, or are Avion prices going up?

Not too long ago, you'd see plenty of Avions for sale for $5K-$10K, with the really nice ones being in the $10K range.

Seems like asking prices are going up....... are the selling prices?

We stole our 1987 Avion for $4000... made a great deal but had to travel 1000 miles for it. With the work and TLC I have put into it, there's no way I'd let it got for $10K, likely more than that, and someone would be getting a really nice, trouble-free Avion.

Based on what you paid, I may have paid way too much for my 30R. However, from what I saw when I was looking, I didn't think the price was bad and I hadn't seen too many 30R's pop up.

Ours was unusually low-priced. The PO had been trying to sell it, but folks around his area were looking for lighter trailers that they could tow with a 1/2-ton. We jumped on the deal and made the trip. Four years ago this October.

We paid $3k in north Florida for our 68' 26 footer, it was basically gutted with no tanks or plumbing and the 12v system wasnt functioning. We will have right around $10k in renovations but everything except the frame and outer skin will be brand new, I hope to have it appraised in the $14k-15k area for insurance purposes but I have no idea about the actual sale value. I do agree that the prices seem to be rising because we looked for a couple of years at both Avion and Airstream units and it seems that either brand will cost $8-10k for something that is camp ready and nearly original and anything that has been modernized goes up from there.
