If that........my guess the owner gives a rat and is content to wait for the AS mistique to suck some rookie in.

Nada

All,

I just looked on NADA, and the website says this rig is only worth $2500+-.

If that is the case, then it really truly is WAY overpriced. I wouldn't object paying a bit more than NADA for the work that has been done, but not that much.......

I'll call the dealership back on Monday, and see how low the owner is willing to go. Most likely have to start looking elsewhere.

Thanks for all the replies,

Woody

Makes me wonder about the dealer not being forthright; does he own the coach?

Mike,

When I spoke with the dealer, he informed me that the rig is on consignment. He mentioned that a local lady owned it.

I would have to assume the dealer is just trying to sell for the owner's asking price. However, after the rig sitting on the lot for more than a year, one would think that the dealer should inform the owner that the asking price is way too high. Having an extremely overpriced rig on the lot for a long time is not a good business practice. If that was my lot, I think I would inform the owner that she will need to either take the rig elsewhere or reduce the price to a more competitive number.

I rolled into Holiday after I put my semi-vintage (1986) Sovereign into a portico which resulted in a new "moon roof" and a mangled a/c unit.

Andrew (the son) had me back on the road in a week and I couldn't be happier with the repairs.

He doesn't work cheap but the work is excellent.

Thumbs up A vote for Holiday

I have nothing but good things to say about the family owned and operated Holiday Travel Trailers in Albuquerque. I have always been treated fairly, honestly and with respect, both when purchasing our Airstream and when having it serviced.

Don't get too hung up on the NADA prices. An 83 any Airstream for $2,500 would basically be a project. A solid unit with everything working and ready to travel would cost several times that number. The trailer has many upgrades and awnings all around, which is a plus. On the down side there are the dents and the trailer looks like it is sitting a little low. The tires have also been siting in the Albuquerque sun for over a year and that's not good either. While many feel that the price is too high (myself included), you are not going to fine anything decent at the NADA price.

Another satisfied customer of Holiday Trailer Sales. As stated they are family owned and Andrew (son) is top notch in the service field. He performed some warranty work for us and did a super job. Also, when on trips I have call for help on questions on the trailer and they were always ready to help. We stopped in Jackson Center for an axle change and they spoke highly of Andrew and the crew at Holiday TS. Dan (son inlaw) handles sales and is low pressure and knowledgeable.

Rich,

That is purt near what I was thinking also. I did a bit more research, and started looking at the value of other (newer) campers on NADA as compared to what some dealers are asking.

At what dollar amount or model year should we consider the NADA to be accurate with the actual value?

Woody

At that age, everything should be up-graded; unless you are Desi and Lucy.

Agreed the NADA book value means squat, at least for vintage.

Interesting though Holiday used the NADA value to put a value on my 71 ($1500) and they are selling this 83 for more than 5x the NADA value.

I have no idea, after much trial and error, how to find what I need on here! I am looking for someone to inspect an Airstream for me in Los Angeles because I live in WA State. Can someone help me navigate on this site? I've tried everything...Thanks!

Technically, a 1983 is now considered "vintage" by VAC standards. You may find this information helpful in addition to the NADA references.

Happy hunting!

Artemis,

Welcome to the forums.

You've come to the right place. You would be best to start a new thread in the "Buyer's Guideline" sub-forum. Somebody will help you.

Woody
