Kevin ,
she is a fine looking coach and I am sure on e-bay, where there are many buyers , she will sell . I think here on the wog many so called fence sitters, are only here for the view and entertainment with no real intention of buying . there is no other way to explain how so many fine coaches go unsold .

Good Luck , and we will keep the lights on

Kevin If you've seen what I've been looking at the last few years at Atlanta Center.....you'd sell the PA28!

I am going to list it on eBay with a starting bid of $22,500.00 and see what happens.
Great no tire kickers or bottom feeders wasting time and effort. I have little patients in these situations.
Just ask my friends , Usually & most always Happy, & laid back.

Guys , don't you think these prices are " bottom feeding " ? I guess you may have a point , if they don't sell at asking price , they might be worth less ?

In my opinion, and one shared by many, there is what you buy her for, and what you invest to make her road worthy. There are many coaches here with a known history and that alone is Priceless .

Please share what it is you want to pay, and expect to get ,and how you go about your purchase decision .

do you want a coach from a widow who must sell and will take what ever she can get ?

how about a coach from a Millionaire who fixes them up and needs a new hobby ?

My personal favorite and one that is very rare these days, is the old Lady who had it in her garage and did not know its value

Insulting potential buyers is not the attitude that leads to a successful and profitable sale. If you are going to sell a vehicle on your own you have to deal with lots of tire kickers; that's the nature of the business. If you don't want to deal with tire kickers and low ballers let a dealer handle it and let him reap the profit from your bad attitude.

Buyers can smell a bad attitude a mile away, and the ones with any sense avoid the seller entirely. The few who will deal with a bad attitude are going to drive a hard bargain for their trouble. On the other hand a positive attitude opens eyes and wallets.

I have a Freightliner for sale right now, and I expect to spend time with at least 2 dozen tire kickers and low ballers before I make a deal. But I will treat them all with courtesy because they might reconsider or know of somebody who can step up to the plate. And if it does not sell in 30 days or so I have mispriced it and will have to make adjustments. But by selling it on my own I expect to net 40% more money.

Wanderlodges are a machine, and like any machine are worth only what the market will bear. But if you treat prospective customers like a boy that wants to date your teenage daughter that number will be a lot lower.
