Value of my 2003 Airstream Bambi with hail damage and pretty heavily used?

Can someone please guide me to find out how much it's worth? Oh yes it's a 19 ft Bambi

Post pics please, and describe "heavily used." Did the hail damage result in an insurance pay out?

Heavily used means the person before me lived in it for 4 years. The hail damage is on one side really bad and nothing on other of course I don't have a pic of the bad side haha. I read today you can use a torch and get the dings out ???? I may try that. Can't find anywhere what it's worth

A good metal man could straighten out the hail damage, but it would not be cheap , quick, or easy. The inside would need to be stripped out on the. Damaged side.

I would say a cool paint job might be a cool direction.... That is probably what I would do... Maybe a cool American flag theme???

The purists will hate this idea....

True ! So where can you go to figure out the value of a trailer?

I believe that Airstream dealers can give you a "book" value for your year and model, but it is hard to say what would be the discount for a trailer that's been dinged up. We were at a dealership for servicing a year or so ago, and I asked the owner what ours would be worth, and he looked it up.

Put it on Craig's list, see what the offers are.

The trailer is worth what someone will pay for it.

I will give you a thousand bucks right now....

Guys I am not really selling it but neither one of you would even be close. I paid a lot more than that for it not too long ago . So it stays right where it is :-)

Shucky darn, foiled again.

Seriously, if you have any dealer close, they might be the best place to get some reasonable value. It is very hard to establish any real market value sight unseen when the hail damage and interior condition are hard to assess.

Sorry for playing in your post, I know it was a serious question.
