Default what is a reasonable price to ask for my hilo?

Hi. We bought a hilo and got ripped off. it didn't open. owner said there was no water damage. when we got it open found out there is water damage coming up from the bottom on both sides. hubby doesn't want to deal with it so we are going to try to get what we can out off it. its a 2003 29ft king. interior is in very nice condition and everything that we've tested works. solar panels and hot water tank are the only things we haven't tested.

Welcome to the forum. I know it's a little too late, but below is a checklist and also the NADA link. The prices are a little high but it will put you in the ballpark. Good luck.

2003 Hi Lo Price, 2003 Hi Lo Values & 2003 Hi Lo Specs | NADAguides

These are the major things to check for.

This was taken from NDgent's post here on the forum. It is a great go-by list. You can do a search of thinking about buying and find his post to read it first hand.

Basically, start with the visual items
1. Exterior
Look for water stains and discoloration on inside walls and around ceiling anywhere vents, skylights, windows, etc. exist.
Push and prod with your hand on the inside walls for soft spots (which could indicate a water leak and a damaged or rotten interior wall).
Check for bubbles in the wallpaper (a sign of delimitation or water intrusion)
2. Interior cleanliness of the unit-
Look for water stains and discoloration on inside walls and around ceiling anywhere vents, skylights, windows, etc. exist.
Push and prod with your hand on the inside walls for soft spots (which could indicate a water leak and a damaged or rotten interior wall).
Check for bubbles in the wallpaper (a sign of delimitation or water intrusion)
3. Test appliance functions
lights
fans
refrigerator
air conditioner
heater
water pump
range hood
stovetop
oven (if equipped)
microwave (if equipped)
stereo (if equipped)
4. Lift System-
Does the unit raise and lower properly
Check the lift system for hydraulic leaks (puddle under the trailer)
Check the lift cables to see if they are in good shape and not frayed
Check the seal between the upper and lower body halves for tears or damage
5. fill the tanks to the top and check for leaks
6. Battery
7. Solar Panel (if equipped)

Default thank you.

it says 3900 low retail. so i thinking then $2000 might be a fair place to start with the work it needs.
