Airstream vs Argosy

My impression is that the value gap between an Airstream and Argosy of similar size, condition, and vintage has narrowed considerably in the past few years. Certain models, the Minuets and the rear entry floorplans, can come very close to the values of similar size, condition, and vintage Airstreams. I would estimate that the Argosy may be valued between 10% and 20% lower than a similar size, condition, and vintage Airstream . . . . there was a time, when it seemed like the gap was closer to 30%.

Looking at value from another angle: some of the snobbier resorts will allow any shiny Airstream in, but they may balk at taking a painted trailer that wasn't made in the past 10 years.
