Looking at from model years 1987-2001.

It depends...


Prices across that wide an age range will vary quite a bit... There really is a gap between 25's and 28's as well, since many tow vehicles can handle a 25 but fewer can pull a 28, so demand is lower for older 28's..

There was a model change in 1995 as well, when Airstream added 6" in width to trailers, and they became "Wide Bodies.." Wider ones are more expensive, heavier and roomier...

There are geographic differences also, as units easy to find on east or west coast, or near major metropolitan areas will be advertised for more than units in remote areas. There is a national market however, and selelrs who get lots of exposure will find people willing to travel over 1,000 miles to buy a trailer...

Finally, condition can vary tremendously, from lovingly maintained, upgraded and stored indoors to something that was parked by the ocean in climate with freezing winter temps and access to rats and mice, and left to rot...

Clean early 25's that don't require a lot of work should sell for prices between $12K and $18K, and wide bodies from '95 through 2000 might sell for prices ranging from $16K to $30K. A new Classic/Limited 25' trailer now has MSRP of more than $60K... Safari's (available from late '90's) are a little lighter, and cost somewhat less. Floorplans for that age range are essentially all the same, with front couch, foldout eating table, center side bath and rear bedroom (full or twins). If you look at a couple, you'll know if you've seen one that falls outside range on either high or low side, and it would be worth the differences.

In the 28' size, early models would be about same or slightly less than the 25's, but newer wide-bodies would sell for slightly more... There are a few more floor plans for front area of 28's, but they are essentially the same as well.

In Theory, there's no difference between Theory and Practice, but in Practice, there is usually a difference...
