Maybe selling my Vintage Airstream

Have a '66 Airstream Safari, that is in excellent condition, all systems working perfectly. I'm considering selling it at some point, and downsizing, but I have no idea what I would be able to sell mine for. Is there still a buzz about buying vintage AS's or is that only people buying gutted out ones and using them for their guest houses, and offices? I just don't know who would buy mine in the awesome condition it's in...vs someone who wants to customize their own.

Any insights are appreciatted. Thanks folks!

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

I'd research the forum classifieds to see what comparable trailers are selling for. I recently sold my '72 Trade Wind and there was a great deal of interest. I sold it in a day for more than I thought I'd get. Ask for more than you think you'll get and negotiate from there.

Personally I think they are worth more redone, and I wouldn't pay anymore for a fixed up old interior than one in bad shape. As I would redo it anyway. But some people do like the old look. according to:Price vs. Condition - Vintage Airstream

average condition is $4200-8700 and restored is $11900-17000 stuff working is as big a deal as what the inside looks like. check out the web site. and ebay to see what they're selling for.

But the bottom line is, it's worth what someone is willing to pay.
And being in Ca is an advantage as everyone pays to much for stuff out there.

May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..
