Selling our motorhome

Today Tami and I are trying to decide if we are going to sell our beloved Laverne. We love it so. So does our neighbor's friend. We have been offered $42,000. I think it is more than twice what Laverne is worth. The amount will buy a replacement TT and upgrades to my truck. I would like the opinion of all AS's who have seen her during rally open houses to speak their mind. Even if you haven't seen her, your opinion counts.

PS, anyone know of a pre '75 21 or 24 foot trailer for sale in the southeast?

its a difficult decision to make. The offer you got is above market and if you would try to sell it in a year, you would be hard pressed to get anywhere close to that amount.
When I sold my 79 Airstream Excella Moho, I immediately regretted it and bought a 345 within hours of the new owner picking up "Lizzy".
They get under your skin, despite the ever so long list of problems and maintenance nightmares. Every trip was a challenge and worries about the engine/transmission became to be a "normal"..
I switched to 1993 34' trailer that resembles your Moho in color and size and comfort. I have a new Tow vehicle and can fully concentrate on being some 54' long , instead of worrying about the mechanics blowing up any minute.
Its a very comfortable ride, with an A/C that actually works and safety features like Airbags and escape routes that are more in tune with today's congested roads and texting drivers.
I always look for the next Classic Airstream Moho for sale and currently I am restoring a Class C London Aire, which is all aluminum.
So the passion never seems to go away and some day just the right classic will come along and I will buy it.
Whatever you decide to do, try to have your next Airstream within reach, because you will miss it a lot.
Wishing you the best of luck

Wow Vycan! What a great idea. The timing couldn't be better. Let's hope the buyer wasn't pulling my leg.
