To copare...I think I would buy the new 2007 34' Classis with everything from solar to 2 A/C units and the whole options book thrown at it for $79,300 that Colonial RV has for sale before I would pay 90 grand for that.

Agreed. Or I would take our 74 Sovereign back to the factory, and let them do a complete rebuild of it, for less money.

Nice! But not that nice.

I think people put these prices on eBay in the hope that someone, somewhere, will bite. But the odds are pretty slim.
Bored? Check out my Airstream blog:

Not for me. Sloppy sealant in the bath and contact cement running down the wall paper on one of the cabinets. Little details that could be indicative of what is under the cover.

Ya know you can get a brand new 34' for that.

Glue running down the cabinet wall, scratches on the counter and the wall by the kitchen. No real bed ? and what if anything did they do the running gear, frame, and tanks etc.? Some of the design elements just aren't very functional for a travel trailer.

This is a used Airstream and it has the look of it. The designer that is mentioned doesn't seem to have a lot to show off as far as a website or previous projects.

It does look good for a '74. But not worth 90k. I think its worth about 10 - 15k.

I think they might be testing the waters so to speak, seeing what the market will bear.

Seems to me if they spent this much money, they would at least have an Airstream bottle cover put on it! To me, the cabinets aren't that special, the curtains don't look designer either. That's just me. Can't see them getting close to that price!

This is an example of selling the "sizzle" not the steak! The problem is that the sizzle ain't there!

You would be looking at more like $110k then, with some good negotiating.

Saw it in person

Just had to chime in on an old thread here.......we're currently vacationing in Jackson, Wyoming and decided to take a drive over the Teton Pass to Idaho. Along the way, we saw this airstream parked in front of a store. I immediately recognized the orange awnings. Of course, we had to stop and take a look.

The owner wasn't around, so a couple of nice ladies "rolled out the carpet" for us and let us take a peak around. They mentioned it was for sale, and that the current owner put $90K into the 'stream. For the life of us, we can't figure out where.

Many of what other forum members noted from just the photos is glaringly obvious in person. It's certainly not the best craftsmanship - I agree with a previous post.......we've all seen better work in the photos on this site.
