Our Appraisal Work - What's Next for us
 
We are looking to take our RV appraisal business to a whole new level, possibly approaching areas which no other appraisal group has considered. Until then I will have to settle on a new webpage including design & development and a new marketing approach. We hope to have our new website online within the next few weeks, this new this page will be dedicated chiefly to RV appraisals. We will be concentrating on Bluebirds, GMC, GM bus conversions, and Newell & Prevost motor coaches but we will consider any “Big Tire” appraisal work. We will have an appraisal services ad in the miscellaneous section of the FMCA magazine and their online pages starting in February. I have been doing RV appraisals on Bluebirds and other high-end motor coaches pretty steady since 2007 but I got my start in the antique & classic car judging back in the early eighties, this appraisal business did not happen overnight. After the car judging years I took that gained knowledge and experience and transitioned into vehicle appraisal work in the 90s. In the past we have performed appraisals for the US Government - Small Business Administration, and have had clients such as Schneider Finance performing owner/operator and small fleet appraisal work. Our appraisals have been accepted by every major insurance company in the US and we have had dozens of appraisals requested for bank loans. In the future we hope to take our appraisal show on the road attending more FMCA and Good Sam Rallies. We have not given up our day jobs as of yet but slowly we will be transitioning Fran's real estate & my auction business and other appraisal work to the next generation who have become our primary frontline support when we have gone on-the-road. Our next proposed Bluebird event will be the Flywheelers’ Rally in February. Thanks for your time & support; we hope to see you down the road.

Good luck John and Fran. Sounds like you might get more work than you can enjoy. Need an apprentice?:)

Not many places you can go for up to date and accurate values of our coaches or other less traded coaches.
John, we are lucky to have you and your professional service.
I know you will do well, and I will be giving your name and number when some one is in such need. I have several friends who own high end, home converted MCI and Eagle coaches.
