I have owned a '65 Globetrotter for about three years. Two and a half years were devoted to the complete restoration. My trailer will be featured in the Dec '09 issue of Airstream Life (next issue). I spent close to ten years wanting and researching AS. I must say that I spent much more than I ever intended to (somewhere between 25-30 grand in actual money). I quite counting my hours at about 2000 hours, and beleave me it kept going. The reason that I bring this up is what you think your dream trailer is worth, in your head, isn't very accurate. I went to get it insured for replacement value and was very surprised. First of all my insurance company had to find someone to appraise it. When i brought my rig to them, they told me, that although it was beautiful they would could not give me more than 30 thousand in replacement value. I honestly thought that it was worth double that. Not so. Even with all the reciepts, they would not budge. Even so, I wouldn't change anything that I did. Kenny

Kenny - You need a new insurance company. There are "agreed value" policies available on anything. Try Progressive.

We got our agreed value policy from Progressive through AAA, but it still needs an appraisal from a genuine personal property appraiser. You need to find one that will work with you to come to the value you want it listed for. Ours had no problem appraising it for the value I wanted, and that is our 'agreed value'. I just completed this process a couple weeks ago, so I know this info is current.

But wait - there's hope....
My Overlander was just appraised at over 60k by James Polk, a forum member, btw. They do very comprehensive research and their appraisals stand up in court, and are accepted by all insurance and by the government.
japolk@jps.net
I highly recommend their services to anyone with a substantial investment of time and money in their Airstreams.
If YOUR insurance balks at the value, what do you think the "other guys" insurance will try and do when it's someone their liability?
The more of these officially accepted appraisals we get, the better it is for the restored Airstream value system.
