Hello fellow Aluminuts,
Maybe the next best thing to buying another AS yourself is for your best friend to buy one.
My friends recently sold their little cabin in the woods and are looking for a travel trailer so they can still get out and about now and then.
They're pretty new at any kind of campers so of course I've been extolling the virtues of Airstreams.
We are going to go look at one tonight. My friend Drew says it's a 68 17 footer. Would that make it a Caravel
I know that AS prices are inversely proportional to their length. So I am wondering what kind of $ these little units are going for.
Of course it's all about condition, condition, condition.
But it would be very helpful to have some kind of base price. I found two of them in the completed items on ebay motors - one for $12,200 and one for $4100. Current owner is asking $6500 for this one. Is that high, average, low?
Sorry but I haven't a clue as to the condition. (did I mention condition?)
but it would be nice to at least have some notion as to it's value.
I'm pretty confident I am able to scope out all the usual "issues" that are inherent in these trailers. But is there anything in particular I should watch for?
Sorry I can't give you more to go on. I just found out about it last night.
Drew looks at me as his AS guru so I'm trying to get as much info as I can before we go have a look.
He is a professional photographer btw so if you can help me help him we can all look forward to some exceptional pictures.
Thanks in advance
