Is it better to piece out an Airstream then to sell it whole?

I am curious about the idea of just piecing out an Airstream for the panels, fridge frame, etc... you get then picture. the trying to sell it in one piece. I have a 72 Sovereign Land Yacht. What do you think?

Rivet holes will not line up with another Airstream

Other than for the windows, the labor costs will exceed what you can get for the part.

But, worse things happened than that on E-bay.

If the body is straight and no major panel dents, you will do better selling in one peice. Andy is right, the door and the windows are the most expensive parts. A good door can go for $1400.00 but you have to find the right buyer; could take a while.
Even a poor looking trailer can get $2000~$3000. One ready to go and it's what ever the market will bring. Nicely done trailers with everything in great shape will bring $10000 and up. Your biggest problem is the trailer size. Most folks are looking for 23-28 feet. Older Bambi and bubble trailers bring a real premium.
How's the floor?
