Truck Cap Dodge Ram 1500

We are finally, really going to buy a new truck. We are trading in our older Dodge Ram 1500. The Dealers don't seem to want to give anything, ie: $$ for the truck cap. I am having a tough time finding what it may be worth online. So, I am asking the knowledgable group here. We have only used it about 3 times, so it is brand new. I was thinking about putting it on Craig's list. Any ideas on value?? Thanks!

Go to Kellys Blue book to check its value. Craigslist is a good idea, I sold a car there in one day.

FWIW - My SIL just picked up a white fiberglass Leer cap in excellent condition - many windows, (no leaks), interior lights, the back of the cap is higher than the front makes getting in and out easier, fits a long bed truck for $200.00, there are no roof racks on this cap.

It had been for sale (side of the road) for quite some time, SIL stopped by just before vacation last August, the owner told him to make an offer, as his asking price of $500.00 was not getting him anywhere......SIL offered $150.00 and walked away 15 minutes later with cap on the truck for $200.00............

SIL is happier than a piggy in poop, now he can travel with his camping gear in the back of the truck and not worry about rain!!!!! Eldest (16 Y/O) grandson slept in it last year....he loved having his own space.

Good luck in selling.......
an after thought - will the cap fit on whatever new truck you are looking at buying???? I know DH would not have a p/u WITHOUT a fiberglass "lid" (the type that lies flat to the bed rails, nothing high), for camping....his work truck is an open bed but the camping TV has the lid..............
