also are their any inherent problems with this camper that I should be aware of

thanks for taking the time to help as I am sure I will have many more questions in the future

Welcome to the Airstream world and the forums. You have come to the right place. You will find this site a wealth of information. The people here are very friendly and informative. I would say this is one of the best RV forums on the net!

Here is a very good place to check on the value of RV'S!

Welcome Tombleds;

You could also try calling around a few dealers to get the book wholesale value which they all have - and then calculate the % markup for your area

For example we just got a wholesale value on a 99 34' Excella at $29,900.00 Canadian. Depending on the mark up dealers take should give you a good idea.

You do not necessarily have to check with an Airstream dealer either as most RV dealers have a value book on most makes and models.

Sometime value is personal preference as well and something to consider - opportunity with chance mixed with availability.

Good luck
Everything will be alright in the end. If it is not alright now, then it is not the end.

It depends... (As Law Professor once said..)


The 34' trailers are not as expensive "per foot" as shorter trailers, due to challenges of having adequate tow vehicle and maneuvering room. Many were bought by full-timers or retirees and are sold when they are unable to use and eager to sell..

The 1991's were well built narrow-bodies, and issues might include Air Conditioning and Plumbing, plsu tired interior soft trim (Carpet/Upholstery/Drapes etc..) There are lots of posts here on how to address those..

NADA or other guides don't really reflect national market made up of series of local markets either.. In Florida or warm belt, there are more of them and prices often lower. In central or western US prices may be higher...

Having said that, a price in $ mid teens is worth pursuing, in my view, and from there plusses and minuses relate to condition and efforts and costs you'd need to put into making it something you would be very happy with... (For us, pink curtains and mini-blinds and upholstery with pink and ivory flowers needed improving when we bought an '89..).

Dealers would ask more, and private parties trying to sell to clear a space or settle an estate might ask less.. Good luck!

I just bought a very well cared for 1990 34' Excella 1000 for 15K.

Other than new batteries, it needed nothing. If you shop long enough, the deal for you will appear.
