We're looking to buy an airstream from neighbors.....

We're looking to begin negotiations with neighbors for a small 14-15' airstream. Think it might be a 61 but not sure. Interior looks to be original, old dusty and used, but intact. Hasn't been used in years and tires are shot. No idea as to the condition of it's undercarriage. No propane tanks or connections. Window seals look OK and no roof leaks. 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.

Welcome to the forum! Here is a link to a discussion of price vs condition that may help you.

Price vs condition

That same website has an excellent photo archive where you can figure out exactly which airstream you are buying. Airstreams are measured "bumper to ball" to get the correct length.

Good luck!

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!
