Default Reasonable price ?

We are wanting to purchase a 1988 Funlite hi-lo from an individual. It seems to be in good condition besides the front wall rotted out from a leak probably from the window. We'll have to replace that paneling. Other than that everything seems to be working and looks clean and taken care of. He was asking $3900 obo and will sell it to us for $3500 with $1,000 down and $300 monthly payments. Does this sound like a reasonable price? We really like the camper but don't want to pay more than its worth. Thanks!

Libra, welcome! We can't begin to advise you about the price you are thinking about paying without knowing the length of the trailer and maybe a few other details such as the age of the tires (trailer tires should be replaced if they are 5 years old, regardless of their appearance). You can look at the NADA guides for the trailer you are considering to see what value they give it.

And, be realistic about the water damage and how you will go about fixing it. Repairs CAN be made, but you need carpentry skills.

Like J&J said Carpenter skills and in some cases Welding and Lots Of Ingenuity & patience ...and a shelter to do it in..and in most cases damage will be worse once ya get into it...And Roofs almost always need attention...Its all doable ...and can be FUN I love Projects...just hate to spend MONEY...
