Action could be right. Do you see any problemn with making an offer at the total of what the bank sees as its value ($20k)?

The seller can say no, but you do have some evidence to use regarding value.

Oh, and the seller could also say yes!

Well it got worse. It seems the nada value takes a big dump in the sixth year. What I thought was an'08 turned out to be an '07. The bank lowered what they'd loan me by $11,000. Yikes Fortunately I found that Good Sam finance goes by 130% of nada wholesale, and they took other things into consideration so their offer was $7500 better than B of A.

I could be wrong but I think trailer is worth what he's asking, and there are other buyers. He won't budge on the price.

So I may have to just bite the bullet. It's only money. Right?

Considering I work for a bank, just not that kind of one, many lending institutions are in the very conserative mode because of the market in the last 5 years. (Hey there aren't as many lending sources as there used to be) Taking a very conserative approach may not garner expansive market share, however it is a long term market strategy.

If you want it and think it is worth it then write the check. Like you stated it's only money.

Just thought I d let you know that we paid 7900. for our 72 25 foot Airstream Tradewind 2 years ago. Most things worked on it. It was in good condition. All the orginal bins and tambour doors were in it, as well as the over bed drop down bins. It was clean, no leaks and we could camp in it right away. We also fought with about 2 other couples to get it, as it had just been on craigs list for 2 days. Since we have owned it, we put in laminate floors, replaced the axels, and re-did the electrical wiring. We camp in it quite a bit. We have the center twins and rear bath. We are now looking at getting a 2000 excella. What would your parents say is the value of theirs? What length is theirs? If we get a new trailer, ours will be on the market, just saying!

Would anyone please comment on the effect for value if ROAD DINGS on the shields and the body above the shields of an Airstream (2005 CCD 28')?

Assuming they are the small dimply dings that come from kicked up small rocks, the value impact is minor to negligible.. If any are actual holes, or tears, or large (2-6" depressions) then those might be worth a discount... The shields are designed and intended to take hits...

ok people, I need advice. i'm looking at a 1998 safari 25'. they are asking $16000 and my search through the NADA isn't all that helpful. it says new price was around $28000 and retail to be a little over $5000. based on that retail value my financial institution probably wont loan the askng amount. the one i'm looking at is from original owners and has always been serviced at the Jackson center plant, is all original, everything works, and is in excellent shape. from all my searching the asking price seems to be inline with year and condition. so is the NADA original price what a lender would use or are they going to use the retail price?

NADA original new price was the Manufactured Sugested Retail Price (MSRP) when the unit was for sale in the dealership as brand new.

There will be other values listed such as trade in or Low retail or high retail. All of these numbers are based on surveyed sales or in many cases an algorithim based on what is happening in the market place. In my opinion is is a good place to start and not necessarily actual market place value of any given unit.

When using the guide make sure to enter all of the features of the trailer. It can significantly alter the value.

Hi... Am actively looking for an Airstream, and see all manner of asking prices!? How does one find all of the equipment that comes standard with each model so as to get an accurate price using NADA? How are people coming up with the prices they are asking?

Thank u!

Vintage Airstream trailers (25 or more years old):
Price vs. Condition - Vintage Airstream

These are guides only and not intended as a definitive source for value on all used Airstream RV's.
Up to 20, and the other part is 25 or more? Is that a typo, or in other words, what about 21 to 24 years old?

If you don't mind my asking...how much is Bates asking for the AS?

I watch ebaY for a few things too, but of course, you really need to see what things sold for, and unless you are looking at the entire progression of a sale, you never see the closing price, do you?

At least, that's what it looks like to me. The other part is that once an item for sale closes, there is precious little info except for the "headlines".

But maybe it's different for the auto/vehicle section.

Do you mean the AS factory options? Or the listed options thru NADA?
