1966 Airstream Overlander

I need some help, due to a separation we are selling a 1966 Airstream Overlander. My husband started restoration but stopped working in the trailer when we separated. I am trying to determine the value. The body is good, David Felver at Felver Design Polished the Camper. My husband has totally gutted the camper and was in the process of removing the interior walls with intentions of rewiring the camper. Some of the wood flooring needs replaces in the back in front of the back hatch door, probably a 2' by 3' section. There is a small rotted place at the door frame. Otherwise it is OK, we purchased a new AC unit. All interior is still available it just isn't in the camper. It cost approx $4000 to polish the camper. My husband told me it is probably not worth $2000 like it sits but I disagree. Anyone have any thoughts on this. It is for sale but I thinking is should be worth at least $7000. Any one interested it is for sale. you can contact me for pictures. Thank you

Though I'm a guy, I'm not trying to take sides. I would have to agree with your soon to be "Ex" on this one. A trailer that is gutted is a project, sometimes parts are missing, etc... Like many folks before you and there will be many afterwards, money was spent in the wrong place upfront (polishing) if left outside, it will need to be redone again by the time the trailer is finished, hince not adding 4K in value to the trailer.

I've bought many trailers in my day and I even own a 1966 Overlander, unless the skin is in perfect shape and all the cabinets are in perfect shape, you are talking a 2,000-3,000 dollar trailer more towards the 2,500 number.

It's sad when this happens, not only to couples but trailers and even worst, it happens all the time. Hope the two of you can put everything back together including the trailer ;-)
