Chalet

Found a Chalet in my neighborhood. What do you think that they are worth? I will get a pic posted. It's not for sale, but going to try and get it!

I saw one in Greenville a few years ago. I haven't been up there in a couple years.

Re: Chalet

Few examples on this thread but not too many prices quoted. Maybe pm 77blazerchalet for what he thinks current values are. I'd say somewhere between $3.5 - 8k

Looks like it's had 8 lug swap. The one I saw was the same colors but driving down the street in front of the bar I was at with the fellas.

That is absolutely not a Casa Grande - it is an aftermarket Sportsman brand slide-in camper made in British Columbia, also quite rare. The company made them for first-gen Blazers & Jimmys, too.

I covered that with my couple of paragraphs I added to the old blazerchalet site in its "Buying & Selling" section at this page -- the basic nutshell of the value idea is the combination of how much you'd be willing to pay for a rig that is not beyond salvaging, then factoring in how much it costs you parts-wise and time-wise to get it up to either usable daily driver / daily camping status, or to the level of factory showroom new appearance. The value of it is the point where you'd refuse a cash offer from some guy at the end of all your work because it's too far below your break-even point.

Start at too high of an entrance cost, pile in all the costs for fixing it up, and then try to sell it for double what other rigs of equal levels of restoration go for, and then you realize you paid far more than what it was worth out of the gate.

Eek. Not looking good, but hard to tell with that photo if I'm seeing crumbly sills or reflected light on the ground under the truck. Rigs that have been stored a long time out in the elements which don't have terminal rust in the bottom of the truck tubs tend not to be worth much more than two grand, tops. If the truck can't be salvaged, you might have a camper worth no more than $300-$500 (if it is in better than average shape) and whatever the value of the salvageable old Chevy parts are worth.

Yep, a few orphaned camper units and a few complete rigs have sold for big bucks, but that's more of a factor of the buyers being oblivious to other comparable units/rigs out there for half the price.

On this particular one, can you at least snag the serial number and build date from the plate by the back door? I have the impossible goal of trying to track every one of these that was built.

Re: Chalet

Found this one: https://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/...431802937.html

He is asking $3k. It has some rust, looks complete, but does need some work.
