PostSubject: So many different hitches, is mine worth anything?   Thu Oct 30, 2014 2:30 pm

I pulled the hitch off my wagon.
I was thinking of selling it, but I'm getting messages about it being worth VERY little. Enough to where it would hardly be worth the trouble of boxing it up and driving the 45 minutes it takes me to get to the UPS place.
Could you guys please tell me what would be a reasonable price for this hitch?
It's a hidden hitch model 82005 class III/IV
7-way plug
some surface rust but that's it



thanks guys

if it's a class III or better, it is worth your time, I'd put it in the FS section here first and then if no action then elsewhere. They are no longer produced.

Now a class II hitch really isn't worth very much (Seems every wagon I buy has one of those, lol)

thanks sprocket. I've got it posted on here in the for sale section.
that's where I"m getting messages saying "that style of hitch is only worth 25 to 35 bucks"

There are no commercially available Class III hitches for these wagons anymore. A Hidden Hitch Class II is well over $200 with shipping (EG: http://www.tdotperformance.ca/vehicle/1995/buick/roadmaster/hidden-hitch or http://www.etrailer.com/hitch-1995_Buick_Roadmaster.htm?style=Estate+Wagon). Rabalc sold out fast on his first run at something like $150 or $160 shipped (IIRC) and still has interest even though he had to up the price to $225 shipped.

Yours is rusty and used, but still appears to be quite serviceable. On the principle that used=1/2 price according to many wrecking yards, I would think a number around $100 is probably fair. I would think the current demand would support that -- there are guys who want a Class III now instead of waiting for Rabalc to do another run.

But ultimately, any item is worth exactly what a buyer and seller agree it's worth on any given day.

eBay it. Take clearer photos, especially the receiver to show buyers it's 2", and sell it.

You'll get the money that way.

Clean it up and paint it. That should be worth $200, don't let anyone low ball you.

BTW: If I am correct, that model was for wagons without dual exhaust. So it may not fit an LT1 but should fit the boxies and 91-93 whales.

Add a tape measure showing the receiver opening width.

I had to go out and buy a 55" monitor just so I could see the whole picture.
