My appraisal from one pick with out engine picks or interior pics and a water test would be 13K-15K. NADA puts it at $11K average. But yours look nice. New tires? all good with the trailer? Do you have all the maintenance records?

I will get more pics so you have a better illustration of the condition. I do all the maintenance myself. Other than showing some wear on the paint, the trailer is in good working condition. Tires are good. I don't think NADA is accurate for the inboard market...especially in the Midwest.

$12-13k. Some go for more but usually with sacs, tower, pp, and other options. Maybe up to $15k as it is still buying season. JMO

I can't remember if it was a 97 or 98 that just sold here in Utah for $16k. Was also in nice condition, no Perfect Pass, but it had a tower and possibly a heater/shower. Sold in like two days.

Ask high, people will lowball you. A 98 ps 205 should be worth 16+. Ask $17,500, see what kind of offers come in.

Tower and PP add $$ really quick. I bought a 95 for $10K no PP no tower.

This one has been for sale for some time...supposedly under deposit in AL.

Absolutely ask high so you can negotiate from a position you want to!
