Question 1968 Sovereign Value?

So we have inherited this trailer and we really do not have the time or funds to put into restoring it at the moment. We are looking to either sell it or see if we can store it someplace until such time that we can invest into it. I signed up on this forum with the full intent of helping my late father-in-law to restore it, but life happens... If anyone might have an idea what it is worth, it would go a long way to helping us make a decision on whether to sell or save. It seems to be in decent shape. I know that some interior work was started, but would have to revisit and get some photos to confirm. I currently have some photos of the exterior I could post. Maybe I'll start with a couple.
Thanks!

Thought I would mention that although it has CA plates, I am in CO

From the outside, it needs some work.

Clearance lights, reflectors, AC shroud, and axles.

The water heater area, also could be cleaned up.

What is the condition of all the exterior gaskets?

Maybe $2000.00 to 3000.00 would be a reasonable price, depending on the condition of the inside.

Well, it looks as though we are going to sell this one. Will have to start looking around for interested parties around here in Colorado.

The skin looks quite nice. You might try listing it in Austin TX if it will tow. There are a lot of food trailers that are Airstreams, also you could list it in LA or larger cities and tell people they have to pick it up. The pictures show a nice trailer, even if it does need work, so you might find someone willing to pay more... You could put a higher price on it if you list it in those places... Just a thought.
