Looking to Purchase

Hello all,
I am new to this forum and excited to hear what you all have to say.
We are in the market for a used (slightly) airstream.
Since its just two of us and our two dogs we are thinking under 25ft.
What should I expect price wise for a 2008-2010 airstream?
The models we are looking at are 23D Ocean Breeze - 2008
2010 International 25ft.

Thanks everyone!

Hi and welcome to Air Forums. I always like to hear about another couple wanting to join the Airstream community. It's fun.

Sometimes it's confusing to select the right category for your thread to garner the most views and responses. You might try your tread in the "Our Community" - New Members or "Dollars and Sense" - Trailer Values. The category you happened to pick is an administrative category. Maybe it shouldn't be on the top of the page.

As you probably know, the Airstream market is hot right now. They can't build enough to meet demand. That of course has elevated used trailer values. Airsteams are some of the highest priced trailers on the market. They are special, that's for sure. But they aren't for everybody. So don't be shocked when you find out what the asking prices are for used Airstreams. I might add they last a very long time when properly maintained. Ours is nearly 30 years old and still performs quite well. Our Trade Wind is almost 50 years old.

We thoroughly enjoy our old Airstreams. We just returned from a 10 night trip to Colorado. We were snowed on in the mountains! Springtime in the Rockies! Beautiful country though.

Good luck with your search. Try the classified section attached to Air Forums. You might find one there that meets your needs.

David

Howdy! How much travel experience do you have? Will this be RV #1? What Tow vehicle do you have?

Have you checked out the 'classifieds' section? Possible options there... Cost.. is all over the map.... have to see what is best deal for you.

Good luck!

Welcome. Airstreams represent an almost unlimited opportunity to spend money

Prices for used units vary wildly, depending on the condition. Make sure to buy from somebody reputable - if a deal looks too good to be true, that's usually because it is.

Don't let yourself get talked into buying a huge truck as a tow vehicle, especially with a smaller trailer you won't need one.

We have a 2007 Chevy 2500 Duramax. Our first trailer was a 1976 Komfort trailer 17ft. But recently we have had truck campers. The quality is just different... and we like to camp ALOT.
So we think its time to invest instead of buy something that will have to be replaced. We aren't interested in renovating and really like the new modern interiors.

Ok.. in that year of AS you will need to purchase carefully. You want to check carefully.. There is likely a chance you have to check for signs of water penetration... leaks. This is a matter of constant attention in AS trailers. Not hard.. but you must 'maintain'... you will need to check functions...

Also, the running gear... so you will need to know how to lift the AS.. carefully...so you can spin and rock the wheels.. check underneath for damage... check the axles for having been 'jacked' which ruins them...

There are a bunch of other things... the best thing.. find what you like... then invite an 'inspector' to tag along... you'll do fine..
