Value of a 1986 Excella 32'
Dad is possibly looking to sell his 1986 32' Excella. This is his third Airstream...has had them since 1977 or so. We lost Mom two years ago and he is struggling with stiff legs after a knee surgery gone bad. He wants to keep camping, hoping to buy an Airstream van camper that would not require the constant in-out-in-out of the car required to hitch up alone. The Excella might just be too much for him now.
He is wondering how much it is worth? I can try to get some shots of it when I am over next...but can tell you it has straight skin with the exception of a pretty nasty front lower driver's side corner dent caused by some big road debris, all major systems work...good tires and frame. No soft floor issues that I know of. The interior is pretty nice for the vintage, but could stand to be cleaned up. I know that another accident, a trailer tire blowing, caused some damage to the "mother cord" that feeds info to the systems data center in the front center console...I think some the readings on tank levels, etc. are not able to be used at this point. I did the body work on the passenger side wheel well and it is back in shape.
He is looking for a ballpark...and I want to help him in any way possible. I am hoping we can find a buyer who will use it. Like I said, Dad is interested in an Airstream van camper, so some kind of trade would be very possible.
