Help --- selling 1997 safari

Hi, Airstream people:
My husband and I, with mixed feelings, are selling our 1997 25' Safari. Due to health problems, we are giving up travelling and are, instead, buying a used fifth wheel from a private owner to place on our RV condo site in Melbourne Beach, FL. The fifth wheel will give us and our 2 big basset hounds more room. Our dilemma is affixing a fair price on our Safari. It is in superb condition on the interior but the clearcoat has degraded, especially on the top, and we have a small dent in the rear bumper. We have installed pergo-like flooring inside, have kept it exceptionally clean (no smoke, no solid waste in the toilet) and recently had it thoroughly checked out by an Airstream dealer. Our unit has a full pull-out couch in front with 2 twins in the rear. Any ideas how much we should ask? I can't seem to find comparable units with which to compare it and the NADA prices are ridiculously low. Please help!!

Sorry to hear about your health problems and that you are selling your Airstream, but Airstreams are for traveling, and I think that what you are doing makes a lot of sense to me.

I would ask the Airstream dealer that recently did some work on your Airstream. He would have a better idea than anybody since they know your trailer.

Let us know how it works out for you. Good luck.
