No AC, body damage, aged out rubber rods in the axle, and possibly other things that your photo's do not show, such as the original appliances, and is the water system still the original.

Not worth much more than $ 2,000.00, in my experience.

It is cute, I think one of the most important factors is the floor condition. Is it rotted anywhere? I would take a screwdriver and poke around, especially around the bathroom, under the cabinets, and by the front door.

This article should give you an idea of how to approach pricing:

Hi,
I am in the final stages of renovating our 63 Trotter. 1st off I have found that early 60s Globetrotters are much in demand (hey, I own one!) and are great trailers. Word is that Wally designed the Globetrotter to be lightweight and balanced for overseas shipping a travel, hence the name Globetrotter. I found mine in a field with a raccoon living in it, all the wood was like it had been sitting in a Texas Kiln (did I mention I'm from southwest Texas) and needing a lot. I paid $1,600 and I feel like I stole it.

An honest opinion on value is that everyone has their own opinion. Not sure how many were built but that one does look interesting and would be fun to travel in.
I would start with what it would be worth in restored condition and that would be the baseline. Now start to add up what it would take to get it there, it may take much more money to get it there than if you just go out and buy one done.
This does not take into account the experience and satisfaction of restoring it yourselves. Allot of satisfaction for being able to say "we did it" and there is no way to put a value on that.
Good luck in finding one of those in the $2,500.00 range, most of the restorers would snap it up for that.
here is another that I found;
