Which would be more desireable

Postby len19070 » Sat Jan 17, 2009 6:27 am

I have a customer, they own a Little Guy cargo trailer (no galley, just a hatch), they want to sell it.

They already know there going to take a loss on it.

The question is, with it being priced properly. And if you were looking for a trailer.

1. Would a trailer like this be more desirable as it is with no galley? Let the new buyer build his own. Keep the price down.


OR


2. Spend some money, DIY or hire someone to install a Galley, raise the price accordingly.


Thanks

Happy Trails

My guess is #1, The potential buyer may not want a galley or like the galley you installed or actually "want to" build/design there own.

Theirs a skill level question as well. If the buyer installs a galley and does a H.A. job its OK. :shhh:

But if the seller does a H.A. job thats not OK.:thumbdown: :money:

I didn't want a galley on no. 1, but I finally did add it anyway. the convenience of having all cooking stuff, soap, clean up, counter, cutting board, etc., ready to go was just too appealing.

so, I cobbled it onto the back.... http://www.freewebs.com/teardrop-stuff

The Little Guy's seem to do fairly well on the market with no galley if priced accordingly so I would say leave it. Better than trying to sell something somebody doesn't want and/or like.

before I vote, by no galley, do you mean no hatch no shelf or anything? or just bare back with a basic shelf and hatch back there like a new lil guy?

I would say give 3 options if your building on a preorder.
#1 Empty back with nothing but a big hatch that goes to floor level. (for those who would like to bring a couple of scooters)

#2 Bare shelf and basic inside cabinet for DIY'ers

#3 You designed galley at a significant price increase.

If your building before having a buyer, I would probably put a basic shelf in the back and include an offer to make it a full galley at an additional cost if they so choose. (payment in advance)

I would leave it as is. Part of the fun of owning a Teardrop, is customizing it your way.

My first TD was a LittleGuy with no galley -- a cargo model. I built my own galley. That was how I wanted it.

What size is it -- a four-wide?

I say a basic shelf and cabin/galley dividing wall. Nothing fancy. You know where the wall studs are and they will have to hunt for them.


p.s. I completely misread the first posts and barreled on anyway. I had it in my mind you were talking about a trailer you built. It was just now that I reread the first posts. :oops:

So I change my vote to leave it be. :thinking:

...I would say, MAYBE a very basic galley, otherwise you probably couldn't raise the price enough to recoup the cost of a fancy/elaborate galley...on the other hand...no galley at all, might make a harder sale....I know, I know...no help at all... :lol:

:thumbsup: Keep the price down and give someone a blessing. ;) They can pay someone to do the galley if they want it. You might give them some names of people to do this for them. 8) :thumbsup:

Besides with things they way they are, you might loose even more on the deal. :thumbdown:

Like Me?

I agree. I think I gave them good advise....sell it as is.

Of course I talked myself out of a galley job.

But, by doing so I have gained some trust.

Trust....Priceless

To me, this is like a basement in a house... I want unfinished, so I can do it the way I want. It's unlikely that the seller can do it cheaper than I can, so why pay more (in increased price) for a job less specifically suited to me than I would do myself (or pay someone to do to my specifications)?
