I paid 5K for a clean 97 185 Lance Squire Lite a year ago. It was about 6oo higher than NADA had it for at the time. On the other hand it was the only short bed camper I could find that was not thrashed for less than 7000. So I was willing to pay a bit more for it. I think Brad is real close on that price of 4500 or so.

My '98 Squire Lite, 165-s, ( for extended cab short bed) was $6500, used in 2001. It was only 3 years old and used 3 times. 95% of the time it was at a storage lot in So. Cal. Great shape. 1808 lbs. as optioned, with water and propane. I bought it from a guy who had it on his Dodge 1/2 ton with air bags and shocks. He reported no woes on the 1/2 ton, although I think it works better on my 3/4 ton.
FWIW: the price is way too high. Keep looking. NOT a good deal.
Let's see:
'98 Lance Lite, 3 years old, $6500
'95 Lance Lite, 13 years old, $6000.
Hmmm?

Somebody that works with me just purchased a used Fleetwood Angler (8 feet)in good shape (not perfect) for about $4000 from a dealer that wanted $6500. It was a '98 or '99. Virtually every price you mentioned is high. Offer less.

There are 3 things at work here. First, most people don't know what to charge for their used camper. Just look at the posts above, some people got screaming deals while others paid a fair used price. Second, if it has been kept in a garage or a barn and is in excellent or mint condition, then it is probably worth close to what the seller is asking. Third, If you live in an area where there are not many for sale, then the price might be higher due to supply and demand. At least one of the posters above lives in CA where on any given weekend one could go look at a half a dozen or more used campers. Good luck in your search.

Here in Oregon, around $1500-2000 will net you a camper from the late 70s early 80s. Most 90s model campers go for around $5000-10000 and forget trying to talk anyone down to blue book, if you can even find a blue book figure. And we have alot of campers here, so supply & demand has little to do with the price. A Lance Squire, an 89 I looked at the owner wanted $4000 for it, with mildew in the cabover floor!

Maybe the prices of used ones are staying up higher because the prices on new models have skyrocketed. Most new campers are over $20k so a clean used one for $5-10k seems reasonable. The last time i tried to book mine out was using a link someone posted on this site a few months back. My 03 booked out for around $9500 (if i remeber correctly). I only paid $10500 brand new out the door for this camper in 03. try finding a similar camper today for $10K out the door...

Do some research before hand. NADA will tell you some.... But there are enough outlets with prices that will give you atleast an idea of what to expect.

Partagas is nice. I prefer Cohiba...
