NEWBIE looking for advice... 1971 A/S INT...

Was curious if anyone could give me a hand...
Trying to help out my in'laws sell their 27'. Is there a "blue book" out there that would give me a starting price? It is in good condition, no structural problems, orginal interior, newer carpet. Hasn't been down the road in years..

Do a 5 minute auction.
I will go first; $1000 sight unseen.

The clock is running...

google used airstream. You will find at least 5 sites with them for sale. If you go to the Vintage Airstream Club site (link :

http://www.airstream.net/

You will find how to evaluate condition which is critical to the price . They also have a guide. Prices listed on WBCCI website are usually negoiciable.

Hello brewtus -- Do you mean the price vs. condition page on vintageairstream.com? It is certainly a good starting place to try to understand what you have. Improving the condition to command a higher price is a laborious process and truly will not recapture most expenses you put into it. That is indeed worthwhile for someone who wants to own one however . Mechanical systems like A/C, HW heaters, furnaces, and running gear (axle, bearings, brakes, tires) need to be redone so often that you may not be looking at a goldmine in the current condition.

There are classifieds at these forums. And at Vintage Airstream Club. I think also at www.airstream.com. You might want to browse these places a few times if there are similar age/length trailers being listed. Craigslist is being mentioned more and more. These all require you put a price on it. It gets to be like real estate -- will you price it to move or sell only if you make a mint. The latter gets less likely if the unit sat on the axles at a campground for years -- and out in the open at that.

eBay requires some work in defining what you have if you really wish to capture a potential price -- and poorly defined trailers may cause purchasers to renege on the purchase bid. Desperation sales outnumber truly valuable Airstreams on eBay.

Welcome to the forums -- and please feel that any number of questions is perfectly okay at this wide open self-help site! The search function can be useful too.
