'63 19ft globetrotter - what's it worth?

Hi all
We've been missing our AS! We want to get another one and are considering this cute little vintage trailer. When I asked the seller if everything worked they replied

"The refrigerator works but the unit to cool the refrigerator does not, thus the refrig will need to be replaced or a new cooling unit installed. The two tires on the trailer are in good condition; however, the spare is not."

Please tell me what you think this AS is worth. Thanks!!

Have you noticed the Ivy growth on the inside of the entry door and walls? LOL! If you check with a RV service center they should be able to tell you what the cost of a new refrig. will set you back. The price of the trailer is usually set by the seller. If they are asking you to shoot them a price you are willing to pay then aim lowball and work your way up. They have a number in mind. It may be way more than you are willing to pay! Check the Price vs condition listing on the Vintage Airstreams.com site. Ed

Check out this Price vs Condition information. It should help you decide what a fair price is based on the condition. Any savvy seller will have the same information - it's good to read & understand it for negoiating purpuses.

From the pics, it actually looks to be in pretty good shape (except for the ivy! ) - my guess is it would fall in the mid "Average" condition....better than a lot out there! But nothing beats checking it out in person...you can't "see" smells in photos...smells tell you alot!

Hey thanks for the input and references! They're asking $9500 which sounded pretty high. average value is $4400- $8600. $5k sounds more realistic. Gotta schedule a visit. Thanks again all!

Well, early 1960s GTs are sought after. How bad do you want one? Will a 1972 Sovereign do? They're cheaper.

Figure $1000 for the fridge.

Another $1000 for a new axle, which it needs, unless you're going to park it and never move it.

The dent in the right front will be expensive to fix, unless you want to live with it.

Some people dislike air conditioners on a vintage trailer, so it depends on your tastes, but if it doesn't work it's definitely a liability.

If you get a WD hitch with it that's worth $300.

Not really...like Jammer said, the smaller trailers are very sought after. It's always a sellers market for them. If you get it for $5K that would be a steal!

Keep in mind, being that it's local you would be saving +/-$1000 for a "retrevial trip" too. Good luck!
