Limited trailer values

how much do you have in your 94 limited I have never owned a airstream but have a chance to buy a 92 limited. What do you look for when buying one that has sat alot said alot of new items though.What should I look out for??I believe it sits alot because they purchased a mobile unit.Older owners.

Hi Carolina2007 and welcome to the forums! I'm not sure who this question was directed to, but I thought you'd get better responses if I split it out into it's own thread.

I have a '94 Limited 34'. If the trailer has been sitting, you'll want to have new tires put on, inspect the brakes, and have the wheel bearings packed. Check for soft spots in the floor. That means rot and is not good (expensive to repair). Make sure that all of the appliances work. A new fridge can cost as much as $1600. Look for obvious signs of damage and seam leakage (water stains on drapes/upholstery/carpets etc). Check that the frame doesn't show an inappropriate amount of rust. The most important thing isn't the age, but the maintenance it's recieved. A new trailer that's been abused or neglected is a poorer investment than an older trailer that's been properly maintained.

The values will vary with age and condition, but generally run from around $10k for an older ('80s) 34' in good condition to upwards of $30k for a later '90s.

Past that, it's pretty much all cosmetic and what you're looking for in options and decorating.
