Can anyone please help us with determining a fair price for the sale of this vehicle? Is there a 'blue book'site that might have prices posted? Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to give.
A good place to begin in establishing a value is R. J. Dials website on the page titled: Price vs. Condition
A visual guide that may help with identifying the coach can also be found on R. J. Dial's site at: Photo Archives
If the coach happens to be a 1961
or later and has the Henschen DuraTorque axle, the DuraTorque inspection guide can be found at: DuraTorque Axle Guide
There are two sites that have excellent FAQ sections that may help as well:
R. J. Dial's website at: Restoration Resources
and the Vintage Airstream Club at: Resources and Information
Empty Weight, Hitch Weight, and Hitch Height may be available at: Airstream Weights and Measures
Good luck with your research and inspection!
