Have a 1993 Classic 250 Need advice

My vin# shows it is 1993 and mfg in 1993. No listing for a Classic 250 is made for this year. I was told once that it was one of 5 made in 93 because they had enough parts to finish them.

Since there is no blue book or NADA guidelines for this model...then how much is it worth? I am interested in buying a new motorhome now and would like to know what you guys think. It is in good shape no major body damage, I had redone the carpet and floors, I have made some upgrades.

I have loved it and owed it since 2002. It has 65,000 miles on a 454.

Let me know if you guys can help me. I would love any info you can give on this model and if anyone has heard of another 93 Classic 250.

Thanks
Jason

Wow, a 1993 you say.

There are two vins for your unit. the Airstream vin and under that tag is the chevy P-30 vin. Are they both '93? I bet the chevy P-30 vin is '92

Thanks, your right chassis is 92 and coach is a 93.


I have been reading the threads, Fortunately my Father had owned an RV repair shop for 10 years. We replace the front springs and air bags and did a full brake service.

I have left the orginal hardwood floor in the kitchen area and replace the carpet with tile. I put new carpet around the Driver and passenger seats. I have also replace the fridge, I have redone the bathroom sink to stainless steel. I have done the entire right wall in the front of the coach in stainless steel and around the foot area on the driver side and passenger side. I have added couch to the front and re did the orginal couch with black leather look fabric. I have redone all the trim in stainless instead of gold.

I have also cut real stainless steel inserts for the fridge panels.

I have never touched the outside, it has normal wear and tear with no major dents.

Engine wise I have replace the spark plugs and plug wires, I have build a custom cold air intake system and have had it tuned. I have also added extra transmission cooler and have put a trans temp guage in the dash.


My generator has been rebuilt once, I have replace all the tires recently.

I also had a custom hitch built so you can tow more than 500lbs now is good for 5000 and up.


I have noticed that 250's hard to find, Mine is pretty nice. I would like to sell it now. What do you see these going for? I saw a one was just shipped to the UK Do they need another

I love 250s and have watched them for many years. They are probably the rarest and most sought after classic insomuchas there were less than 50 made between 1989 and 1993. They were unpopular at the time because everyone wanted the 31ft + or incoming 'white box' models. The fools! Now it has all changed, anyone with taste wants a classic, many prefer the later models because they are slightly more reliable. The 250 can sleep a young family of five with full bath and cooking facilities. It can drive in any state park (being 25ft) and is easy to drive.....even on the UK's tiny roads! There were a very small number made in 1993; I only know of two. My understanding is that the last 250 was shippped to Germany for the conductor of the Wolfsburgh Orchestra. It was fitted with 220V standard appliances.....sorry to let you down! Either way, 250s are very rare and command a high price - mid 30s is common. Export to Europe is more tricky now because the exchange rate has plummeted. Once you add shipping, import tax, Euro modifcations you have a big number! I have pictures of nearly 15-20 250s. I am aiming to collect as many as possible and will stick them on a web-site with map locations. There are at least five in Europe. I would love to see pictures of your 250!

Good luck with the sale.

Thanks a lot, I will send you a bunch of pictures. I have truly loved my little 250. I have listed it for little over 35,000.00 I agree shipping it to the UK or Europe would get a tad spendy


I have a couple more questions that have been killing me for years. If you could help answer these.

Are the slots by the stove top for knifes?
Aux. Heater work? This for larger models?
Who makes the remote spot light?, I need a bulb.
Do you guys all have a ton of keys like me.

Thanks
Jason LaPoint

I'm not 100% sure about the motor homes, but it sounds like the PO of your coach was like the PO of our trailer. Originally, all hatches and doors were keyed alike, and the PO had them all rekeyed differently. I now have a key ring that looks like the night watchman's.

Yes, I have a ton of keys. Aux heater works on mine. Re: knife rack. I don't think I have one. Although, I guess mine is luxury edition because it has all the expensive options i.e. leather seating, power seats, reversing camera, jacks, oak galley, safe, micro cooker, heated mirrors, Corian etc etc. You can find the whole list of options for the 250 here:

http://www.airstreammotorhomes.com/f...p_1990_250.pdf

I agree that total cost was over 100k for those with the options. Anyone know what defines a LE? My 250 has a blue stripe which is very unusual (I have only seen one other). Most have maroon stripe. I have seen a couple of 250s which do not have the rear bedroom but two settees and the dinette which convert (not ideal!). I have also seen a couple of one offs which have different windows etc i.e. looked like they were made by the commercial division.

If it's the chrome spotlight, the GE # is 4700; it's a two-way.
