A salvage title usually (not always) means there was enough (fire/crash/flood/??) damage to exceed its value. What that damage was and how it was repaired could impact its value a great deal.

Other than that, a salvage title usually makes it difficult to finance and to insure. These things combined with the general feeling of the salvage title will likely also make it difficult to sell again and far less valuable than an equivalent 'Bird with a straight title.

HI,, I BOUGHT ONE WITH A SALVAGE TITLE TOO,,, IT WAS IN A FIRE, AND SEEMED TO HAVE BEEN REPAIRED FAIRLY WELL,,IT SEEMS THE HOLDING TANK HEATERS CAUSED THE FIRE, AND ONLY ONE SIDE WAS BURNED,,, I HAVE BEEN GOING THROUGH IT AND REPLACING/REPAIRING A LOT OF THINGS THAT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FIRE,, IT IS A 1983 PT40, AND SO FAR, I REALLY LIKE IT. I NEVER PLAN ON SELLING IT, SO I AM NOT WORRIED ABOUT THE RESALE VALUE. I HOPE TO EVENTUALLY SELL MY HOME AND BECOME A FULL TIMER,,, I HAVE INSTALLED 400 WATTS OF SOLAR PANELS, AND A 2500 WATT INVERTER, AND 4 6-VOLT GOLF CART BATTERIES, ALONG WITH A BIG GEL CELL STARTING BATTERY,AND THE GENERATOR BATTERY. I AM READY FOR SOME LONG TERM DRY CAMPING!!
