Actually that sounds cheap for a 2017 Classic. I thought that the new classics were north of $120,000.

Check The Classifieds

Unless this particular trailer has a special "hold" on you, I would suggest you spend a month or so checking the classifieds on this forum. 34s come up with some regularity. I know I have seen some 31' trailers with slides for a good deal less. It seems a bit high to me. You said it is pristine, but so are a lot of other used Airstreams. AS owners, as a rule, take really good care of their rigs. The 31' FC I bought was three years old, but, in my estimation, was better than new!

I would absolutely love to own a 34'.
They don't make them anymore.
I still think that $65,000 is a little high for a 2007.
That price might be right in line for a 2010 or 2011 limited production of 25 numbered units per year.
The price for a new Classic is an excellent price, only $10,000 more than MSRP on my 2013 Classic.

that's what I was thinking.... MSRP in 16 is like... Whehheherew

The big question to answer is:

Is the difference in money important to you? Is the new trailer a stretch financially, or no big deal to you? Everyone's finances are different, and if it's a drop in the bucket... then I might consider the brand new with a warranty.

The second question is the size... as stated, that's a dang long trailer to deal with, but maybe you're accustomed to combinations of this length in your past experience....

We have a 1990 34 ft AS &'we really like the space better than the 26 ft Argosy. We have about $18K total in ours & we had to replace tires, brakes, air conditioner, & some small items. I'd look at the classifieds here, decide what you think is fair, & make a resonable offer on the 34 ft since you like it. Be prepared though all used trailers need some work but that is okay as long as you know what is needed before you make an offer. Good luck!

Packerman, I suggest you look in the classifieds for another wide body 34 from 1996 to 2002. You can get these from 15,000 to 30,000 and there is a lot of nice ones out there. Most of these if you decide to get rid of them for whatever reason, you probably will not loose more that the tax you paid. A 65,000 2007 is whole lot different. Try before you buy. You can always upgrade. There will be plenty to come along.

Thank you everyone for sharing your opinions. I just sold my 39' Montana 5th wheel because I desire to simplify our camping lives. The Airstream is a perfect way to do it with the higher quality components and construction plus NO SLIDES! I am leaning toward either a new 2016 classic for 100K or a 2017 for 104K. I am not sure what the enhancements are for 2017 but cannot imagine they would be dramatic. Not sure 2016 or 2017!

Get the 2016.
There will probably be no changes.
