1988 excella 29'

Im neding to know why I never see any airstreams in the 1988 year for sale as I have 87-89,I was told by a unknown person that the 1988 airstream campers have something speacil about them and thats why they are harder to find and are more costly than others in the same year area as of 86,87,89 but I dont see any 1988 years for sale.Can someone please tell me why is this panning out to be true.I have a 1988 excella and was bought new by my father and is in better shape than most I have seen in the 80's years,my father took excellent care of this camper and so I need to know why they are so differant from the other years and why are they so high dollar comopared to others in the 80's.I hope also someone can help me know what the real size is,the title says 29' and other people tell me its a 32',and I looked it up and that year they only came in 25-29' with 2 axels,please help me figure this out.I hope I can figure out whats all the saying about the 1988 excella airstreams.Thank you all so much for your time.

Well, I have a 88" 32 foot, my parents have a 88" 29 foot,( for sale on this forum,) and you can see a difference. For one thing the interior is set up differently. My wife and I love our 32 foot, the individual who sold it to us still takes issue with the fact that he sold it some 6 years later. Airstream life had an article about this time frame and praised the build quality if I remember correctly. Keep it and enjoy it. At 14k asking price, it shouldn't last long.
