Soon to be for sale. What's it worth?

Many of you have had the pleasure of getting to know my brother Todd (aka "Toddster") on this forum and may be aware that he passed away in December. I inherited his 1967 20' Globetrotter trailer but won't be able to keep it. I'd like a rough idea of what an appropriate/fair value might be.

Todd used to go to Yosemite regularly with this trailer, and we camped in it at Laguna Seca for the Monterey Historic Races every year since he bought it.

Description:
  • No dents or dings to body, lower corner pans are a little dinged up
  • Body has not been polished
  • Most all systems are original and working (electrical, stove, oven, Dometic fridge, etc.)
  • Air conditioning does not work; motor sounds like it needs a new bearing (when it will run)
  • An aftermarket wall heater has been installed on the where the pocket door slides to separate the bath from the living area, but does not obstruct the pocket door
  • New axle within last year (possibly brakes and shocks too, but I'm not sure)
  • New Tires within last 4 years - still look brand new
  • New reproduction stone guard/cover on front window
  • Two (2) new Fan-Tastic Vents
  • Two (2) new batteries
  • All original curved glass windows
  • Beautiful nearly new canvas awning
  • Front dinette rather than gaucho (I think that's the correct term)
A couple of pictures:






I'll try to get some interior photos in the next few days.

Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.

Cheers!
Garth

Garth

I am truly sorry to hear about the loss of your brother Todd.

I have a 66 Tradewind, so I am a bit biased.

This is a very desirable Airstream and has been well cared for. I would say that it would surely be worth at least 10K. I would give that for it in a heartbeat even if it did have some other issues. Gosh, just look at the history of where it spent lots of time- Yosemite and Laguna Seca.

Dan

Hello Garth. The following reference hasn't been updated since 2010 or earlier, so these prices may not be current. It might take comparing to the chart here to similar age units for sale in our classifieds. But look at Price vs. Condition - Airstream Values

The wooden interiors and older, lighter weight coaches like this are very desirable. An A/C replacement runs about $1K. Don't take that on your back. Heck, many Airstreams of this era didn't even come with air conditioners. If the interior is in nice condition, try to think above-average condition & price. Sounds like this has been well maintained.

Our free classifieds has a smaller image size requirement - 450x600 pixels maximum. Read about that and how to place one here. You have to sign in with your AIR username/password when you go over to classifieds.

Best wishes,
Bob

Garth, So sorry to hear of your brother's passing, but the fact that he had an Airstream and that he took it to so many awesome places tells me that he appreciated beauty and nature, so he may not have lived as long as he should have, but it sounds as if he lived fully. I love this lil globetrotter, I am just a novice learning and looking for my first airstream, and from what i am seeing sell on craigslist and other places $8-10K sounds realistic. Almost as important as what price you get for it is the person who is the next steward of this lovely trailer who in some ways ebodies your brother's spirit of adventure! Good luck, I wish It was in my budget! (: God Bless, Mary Claire

Well said Mary. I could not agree with you more. Todd might even think that the next stewart is more important.
