'65 Safari 22' value

We are considering selling our 1965 Safari 22ft. Several people are intrested, but the prices I have researched are all over the place. Any guidence on what to ask would be appreciated. We are downsizing to 17 footer. The Safari has been restored with an emphasis to keep orignal apperance as much as possible. All new fresh water system, pex plumbing, water heater, water pump, fixtures (oem hand held shower retainer). Rear floor replaced. New Amtico bamboo floor through out. New galvanized support tray for the black water tank. New suburban furnace with OEM exterior vent cover. Dometic fridge removed and rebuilt with new 110 element. Works great on Lp or shore power. Axel brakes rebuilt & new rims and tires installed. All the workwork (mahagony veneer) was removed and refinished with Watco. Exterior has not been polished and suffers from clear coat failure in spots. No major dents. It is a twin model so front dinette and side gaucho.

Thats a good question, Problem is different parts of the country are paying different prices and some people like the retro look and others want it to look more modern. I would try to see what others have been selling them for. On here or on ebay. The other place to look is here. Vintageairstream.com under price vs. condition.

They say anywhere form 11900-17000 for a restored one. But then you outside is not polished so the higher end would be out.

Bottom line: finding the right person for the right price. Doesn't matter what it is worth if no one is willing to pay that amount. It's like the old muscle cars. You bought them for $3000 new in the 60's and sell them for over $50,000 now. It's what people are willing to pay....

Thanks for the assistance. That at least gives me a ball park. I have a list of people that wanted to be contacted if it was for ever for sale, so maybe I will let them all make an offer.
