2017 Elite II For Sale in Washington

It appears to have been sold or traded in to an RV dealer...?

 

I always wonder when this happens, is there a medical emergency, did the owners go bankrupt, or divorced, did they have a simple change of heart, did they decide it was too small? With the sales tax in WA being nearly 9 % this is a very expensive mistake for them..... Asking what it cost new is a bold move by the dealer selling it, but it is very unlikely they will get that much, unless some wealthy Microsoft or Amazon geek sees it and grabs it for a toy.

 

Nice setup, too many gadgets for me, but it has the good crapper, at least. ;)

Look at the options again, this one was one of those $70,000.00 fully loaded custom builds. I wish there were some interior pics :)

That is insane.  Somebody in the Roy Robinson sales office has been smoking too much weed.

Checking my email updates for the thread, seems another owner posted how loaded it was and stated that it would sell for $70,000 and had it been available 6 months ago they would have"scooped it up" and praising the composting toilet.

 

So I guess as a good salesman, with dollar signs in his eyes, he headed the advice pull it off the lowly fiberglass RV website, where everyone is selling scamps for pocket change and posted it with the big boys nationwide.

 

I wonder how long it will have to sit there now, asking that kind of price for a used unit.

 

It will be an interesting test of value

 

I just noticed the VIN says 522

It won't sell at that price, not for a used unit. That salesman is truly seeing dollar signs that flat out aren't there... I still say offer them $55k like I did on fgrv and they will take it.

Happy Camping,

They'll advertise it at that and then sell for a discount just like everything else on their lot. And someone will pay good money for it. It's loaded, practically new, and they can have it today vs waiting until next season to use it. Plus a lot of west coast people might rather buy from a dealer hoping to get local service/warranty.

Mystery of the Hull Number and the Vin Number...

 

I think the Hull Number of the Washington trailer is between 220 and 229, probably 221.

 

The Wikipedia page on VIN numbers says that there are 17 digits. I have my VIN number shown below, with two positions hidden with an “x”.

 

Positions 1-3 and 12-14 together are the manufacturer identifier, with positions 1-2 also limited by country. Position 1 must be a "1" for vehicles built in the US. For a small manufacturer like Oliver, position 3 must be a "9." Digits 4-8 are a Vehicle Identifier. Digit 9 is a Check Digit. Digit 10 is Model Year. Digit 11 is an Assembly Plant code. Digits 15-17 are a Sequential Number, our Hull numbers.

When I take the VIN number of the Washington trailer, it clearly does not align. As Randy and Overland noted, Hull 522 can not be correct.

However if I slide the VIN number over 1 position, it fits pretty well. Digits 4-8 are a vehicle identifier. I bet BC232 represents an Elite II, maybe twin bed. Digit 10 is the model year. Mine is G=2016, which is correct according to Wikipedia, and the Washington trailer is H=2017.

If I remove the “1” at the beginning of the Washington trailer VIN and move it to the end, I get Hull 221.

I looked thru the Forum Members, and I found five Hull numbers between 220 and 229, none being Hull 221. Four of these Forum Members list a location far from Washington, and the fifth does not list a location.

 

In searching thru the list of Forum Users, I found a VIN number from a 2015 Oliver, and it has F, which is correct. It has BC232 as vehicle identifier, and it is an Elite II twin bed. BTW, position 2, part of the World Manufacturer Identifier, is different for all three trailers.

David,

 

 

 

That is a very thoughtful and thorough analysis.  Great detective work!

 

Now we're all watching to see what happens with this very high price.
