RE: Value of 1980s Holiday Rambler TT.

I honestly am not looking for an investment. I just like the look of the older stuff. As far as I'm concerned I want something I can keep for the next 25 years. When it comes time to sell.. either at a loss or a profit, it doesn't matter. Agree... finding an older RV with few issues is tough. However; they are out there. Some folks care for them like pets. That's what I'm looking for. Obviously, there will be maintenance needs, but I've yet to find something that was beyond my ability to do. It certainly helps to have some mechanical knowledge and experience.

RE: Value of 1980s Holiday Rambler TT.

Appreciate all the input. My interest in an older unit is related to a couple of things? 1. I like the older look of the 60s-90s units. Specifically the mid 70s-80s. 2. I am less reluctant to renovate, change, or make improvements on an older unit because of a much lower investment. They have already depreciated as low as they are going to go. A new unit such as the one I just sold still retains a high level of value in the current market where families with children are concerned. 3. Having owned TTs for 25 years now that included models between 1995 - 2013, I consider the older units to be much stronger in terms of structural integrity. The 2013 that I just sold was like trying to keep a shoebox safe, dry, and protected from the elements. I know there re some very fine newer units on the market, but well above a price point that I am willing to pay. All I need is a unit that does not leak, is clean, and has a bed and AC. :)

RE: Value of 1980s Holiday Rambler TT.

Thank you for the responses. Honestly, I have almost no real interest in the Airstream. Obviously, if one came along that was too good to turn down, I might consider it. I like the HR because of the aluminum build as well as the physical appearance. I am just hoping to find something in very good condition, mostly original, and at a sensible price. I came across an 86 24' that seems to meet that criteria. However; upon researching it, it seems to be priced excessively high compared to others on the market across the US.

Value of 1980s Holiday Rambler TT.

Hello. I'm in the market for an older TT. I see many across the US and am primarily interested in the Airstreams and Holiday Ramblers. While I find Airstreams in abundance, I don't see much where the HRs or Aluma-Lites are concerned. Would greatly appreciate any input. Looking in the 24-30 foot range. Thanks

Shore Power Issue

Recently installed a new 15,000 AC unit on my TT. Ran fine after install. Been doing some minor repairs, etc… to the u it the pst few days. He went needed or used shore power. Went to turn on lights, AC etc… yesterday but I have no power. I’m getting power inside the u it to the breaker box. All breakers are showing 124 volts. DC size is showing 12.4 volts. DC power works fine. Just no shore power. I’ve checked Ground fault receptacle and it really doesn’t do anything when I hit test or reset. Did a continuity test on the 15 amp converter breaker and it shows 0, which should indicate a good/closed circuit. Any help is appreciated.

RE: Shopping for a used TT. Experiences and Opinions

I see several responses saying sell now, due to a flooded market in the near future. Others say I should keep my unit now for the same reason. It’s a 2013 Salem Hemisphere 34’ bunkhouse. Model 312QBUD. I really haven’t looked into it’s current value but see others that are very similar in the $20-25 range. What resource is best for determining RV values? I see KBB and NADA, but am wondering g if there are others that are specific to the RV industry. Thanks

RE: TT Roof Treatment

I’ve already cleaned the roof. It’s as clean as it’s gonna get right now. I’m just looking for a simple sealer that will bond well to the existing roof. I just do t wo t to have to do all the Dicor process stuff. There has to be a better solution than that. Thanks

RE: TT Roof Treatment

Will the TSP bond well to the current roof?

RE: Shopping for a used TT. Experiences and Opinions

Thanks for the suggestions. I don't plan on buying anything built in recent years. I could go as far back as the 90s as far as I'm concerned. I just want a quality unit that does not leak, has AC, and no issues with axles or wheels. my price range could run from 5-$20,000. It just depends on what it is.

RE: TT Roof Treatment

I've heard quite a bit about the Henry's Tropi-Cool. Some seem to think its great, while others have concerns regarding the fact that it is a silicone product, therefore not allowing anything else to bond to it. I looked into it and see that it is over $100 per gallon. Really looking for something to just brighten up the roof before selling. Thanks

Shopping for a used TT. Experiences and Opinions

My boys are grown up now and we don't have a need for a 34 foot bunkhouse anymore. Accordingly, we want to downsize to a used 19-24 foot TT. I've had a couple of them over the years, but they have been 30 plus. Any suggestions for older, used, smaller units? Brands, models, etc... Appreciate any help. Thanks

TT Roof Treatment

Hello All... About a year and a half ago I treated my 2013 Salem Hemishpere TT with the Dicor, two-part roof sealing system. It looked great. I did not cover it over the past winter and spring as I was using it where parked from time to time. However; I forgot about the problems that sitting underneath a tree for long periods can cause. The roof is now stained pretty bad in some places, which is not a big deal to me. The issue is that I am considering selling the unit and would like to have the roof looking nice before being placed on the market. I really don't want to go thorugh the Dicor process again with wrapping the TT in plastic,etc... Is there an effective, but simple product out there that would make my roof look great again while also serving as an effective sealant? Any help or suggestions appreciated. Thanks
