It's a 66 safari. I think it's 22feet ,single axel. Two single beds in the front that pull out and a double that pulls out from the couch. Rear shower/bath and toilet. New brakes new hubs new tires. New plumbing. Polished two years ago. Beautiful. We need bigger! Too many kids....

I had a 1966 22 ft Safari that I rebuilt from the frame up (everything new). I had more than $37K into it, not counting my labor (totaling over 2,400 hours), and sold it for substantially less then my material costs.

Having been there and done that I would be way more cautious about how much I would be willing to pay for the initial purchase. Not all Airstreams, even if they are all original, are worth rebuilding – for a multitude of reasons!

There are costs that any buyer needs to consider when buying any RV of that age. For example, if the appliances are all original, they most likely need, for safety reasons, replaced (as the propane baffles will rust over time and can be lethal to occupants). Another example involves the axles: if the axles are original, because they have rubber arms in them, they will need replaced.

If a ’66 Safari is in average shape, it really, in my opinion (again, given my rebuild experience), isn’t worth more than $2,700 - $3,700. If it’s below average shape, it may not be worth $1,200. If it’s in excellent shape it might be worth $6,000 - $7,500 – but there are some very high standards that must be met for most buyers to pay that much for it.
