Hi John,

Welcome to the forum. i am also a new Airstream owner. i have been a proud owner of my 58' 18 footer for two weeks. i tried her out at a rally last weekend and had a blast. she needs some work but, that will happen over time. sorry i don't know the answer to your question. my insurance company only asked what i paid for it and what i thought she was worth if i sold her again. i got her for a great deal. i will look up the extra towing insurance mensioned here in this thread....good idea.

happy trailering,
Sandra

67 Trade Wind

I have an original sales receipt for a 1967 Trade Wind somewhere amongst all my Airstream stuff. If I recall, it's original sticker tag was right around $4000. So, since your trailer is a Safari, I'd say around $3700 depending on what options you had, could be a litttle less or more. Options (things like tire saver (a round spring steel under the axle to save the tire in case of blow out (common on single axle trailers but an option)), dead bolt, etc..........).. Hope this helps. Somewhere I have the 67 User's manual and the sticker tag was in it.

I have made mention of this before but I think it is probably worth repeating here. A year ago I was involved with a pick-up while driving my Audi A4. Highway Patrol investingating the accident could not determine fault so none was assigned - we each let our insurance companies handle our own repairs. I had $2,500 worth of damage to my front end - the pick up was totaled. When I went to the repair shop I was asked who my insurance carrier was and I told it was State Farm - no problem, didn't even need estimates. When I told them the carrier for the pick up (one that has been mentioned on this thread) they told me it was a good thing I didn't have that insurance as they wouldn't touch my auto if I had that insurance! CHECK WITH A REPAIR SHOP OR TWO in your area to see if they have any problems with an insurance company BEFORE you sign on the dotted line. It will save you mucho headaches down the road - if you ever need them. Good luck and welcome.

Hello John -- Welcome to the Forums!

tslanier has covered older Airstream insurance in http://www.airforums.com/forums/f342...ons-37846.html (see post 5 links to more of his discussions).

Other ideas? Progressive Direct. Look at USAA if you qualify. Some threads (there are many!):

I have insured our 1974 with Geico, along with the tow vehicle. I asked for it to be insured for $10,000. They agreed, but said the trailer as-is was not worth that amount, and it would be up to me to prove the additional value. So, save all your receipts for everything you do to your coach, it may make the difference between a $1,000 check, and one much higher, if the coach somehow gets totalled. That is a good idea no matter what insurance company you use. Our insurance, for the $10,000 value, loss of use, personal property loss, and an additional $100,000 liability runs just over $100/year.
Also, our Sovereign cost just over $10,000 new, or roughly the cost of a new Sedan DeVille of the same year.

I have heard great things about both Geico and State Farm but unfortunately neither company operates in MA.

If AIG operates there, they own a large portion of Geico...

A long-time friend worked many years for Geico, who told us (a few years ago) USAA is the absolute best, hands down. Might be worth exploring thier rates/options.

Cheers,

1966 suggested retail prices for 22' Safari

I can't seem to find this anywhere, aside from trying the actual factory. Does anyone have a "guestimate" of how much it might have been? Thanks a bunch! John
Hi John:

I don't have a price list for 1967 models, but Airstream's 1966 Price Schedule shows the 22' Safari in Land Yacht trim had a suggested retail price of $5,310.00 and in International Land Yacht trim had a suggested retail price of $5,925.00. Add $300.00 for the annual price increase to get a very good estimate for 1967 model year 22' Safari trailers. Your Safari's trim level should be listed on its serial number plate and should also be revealed by its exterior badging. Hope this helps.

After 20 some years with State Farm It is likely I will be jumping ship.
The problem. I leased one of my vehicles to a friend and my insurance went up. They also ill not insure my property (liability) since it has no structures on it. At the suggestion of Blu_hwy_ldy I am taking a look at Travelers.

I'm wondering out loud if insurance company differences are related to the state or town the company is located in -- or even the office itself. Case in point -- when I was shopping around for homeowners insurance in various states, the rules and rates differed for the same company (i.e., State Farm) located inside and outside the same state. It was almost as if the individual office could dictate its own rules for what they would and would not insure.

USAA won't consider a vintage

Yesterday I tried to get insurance for my 66 Caravel from USAA. I was told that they did not offer that coverage. Would not consider it and referred me to other Companies. What are you all insuring if you say you use USAA? Must be newer Airstreams. Still looking for an insurance company.....anyone have a good company with vintage Airstream experience?

Melody Ranch,
I too have USAA insurance on my 81. I am fully covered as long as the trailer is hitched to the truck - The liability from the truck extends to the trailer and I was able to get the trailer fully covered for collison for a few $$ more....... Interesting they also asked me what the value of the trailer was when new.
