Cheers to yall, sounds familiar and enjoyed it most of the time!
Its important to try to get some short trips in if possible to get some satisfaction while the work is being done, it sure helped my wifes attitude!

There are two completely different issues here - cost and value.

It's not only the question of money; it's also the time that you have to put into the search for the "right" Airstream, particularly when it comes to a "vintage" trailer.

Additionallty, I feel that the amount exchanged is strictly confidential between the buyer and the seller.

Ken, our unit was featured in the summer, 2009 issue of Airstream Life. It's the issue with the Vegas showgirls on the front.

I can't remember for sure, but I know we paid at least $10,000.

This is why I usually answer the question. But my two are over 30 years old. People are usually quite amazed that: 1: it's as old as it is; and b: it was really quite reasonable.

If I had a new one, I probably would not answer. Just like I do not answer when asked how much my new tow vehicle was.

Some people feel strongly that way. I have occasionally asked people how much they paid for a trailer if it looks similar to mine, just because I like to keep up on the current values for insurance purposes. Some people don't mind sharing, some do.

When I bought my trailer someone on the forum asked how much I paid and I posted it. I didn't see any reason not to.

Enjoy that cup of coffee, in fact, best get a coffee pot.... Remember, it is a one step at a time process.
