Totaled '07 25' FB Safari LT?

What might insurance value be for:
a Totalled - in other words... no one would ever want to buy this:

2007 25' FB Safari LT
Is there such a model as LT? I find only LS online.
It is needed because trailer involved in the recent TX homicides. Trailer will not be released to me/owner by DA dept. for probably 10 yrs, so DA office says.

Any help sooo needed by wife. Thank you all.

I am very sorry for your loss. This tragedy has shaken the whole Airstream community. I can't help you with the trailer value except to suggest you call Airstream in Ohio. I am certain they will be able to get you the information you need.

I, too, am so sorry for your loss. This is such a tragedy. I'd start by contacting the insurance agency where the Airstream was covered and find out the stated replacement value. Then, as stated above, contact Airstream Inc. In Jackson Center, Ohio at (937) 596-6111.

Best of luck to you.

Very sorry for your loss.

NADA Guides should give you a ballpark figure. Prices seem to range from $5200 to $5500 but of course your configuration may be different.

The NADA guides don't come anywhere near representing market price of a decently-maintained used Airstream in the current market.

I have no additional information on values - I just wanted to say how terribly sorry I am for your loss. You are in the prayers of many people.

Words cannot express how deeply sorry I am for you loss.

I will keep you in my prayers.

May I suggest contacting Colonial Airstream in NJ, and Seattle AS as they are both dealers that handle a lot of volume and accept trade in models. They would be able to provide a fair market value on any unit. I agree with the other poster that NADA would probably be much lower than the actual resale value of an Airstream.

The current price would be much higher, $25- $30,000 would be close to the proper value. Even more in good condition.

I can't imagine how you must feel, but we are all moved by this tragedy.

I think there was an SE (Special Edition) model which was priced and equipped between the standard model and an International. We have the SE (if it is called an SE, but it is really cold out and I don't want to look). A wild guess would be 25-35 K depending on condition and options.

Check the Forum classifieds and large dealer websites (like Colonial) for asking prices. I'm not sure how your insurer will handle this, but if they are difficult or this ordeal has been too much for you, a lawyer may be able to help.

Prosecutors want to hold onto everything and are even thinking of appeals going on for years and years. A lawyer may help you getting it released, but that may not be a good strategy depending on insurance coverage—both on the trailer and homeowners or any umbrella policy. People do buy distressed (not sure that's a good word for this) items because they sell cheap, so it may have some resale value at some point. Insurance companies want timely notice of damage—sometimes 30 days, but you have to check your policies—so contact your agent(s) if you haven't yet.
