The only data I have is that our 2007 23' International with a full awning package, used, in about 2009 was $44,000 at Sutton in Oregon.

It's current value is still north of $44,000 today.

I'd suggest browsing the classifieds for comparison purposes, ditto other cost-related threads..

Another note, since about 2015 (I think) many models come with 'ducted air', where the air conditioning system has real air ducts. It's quite a bit quieter. My non-ducted system cools, but raises a big racket when it's doing it. (Daughter compared it to living in a trash can with someone beating the outside of it with a stick) I've also found that having and deploying awnings on all three sides when possible helps keep the AS cool in hot weather., Automatic awnings are getting mixed reviews on reliability; mine are totally manual.

Upgraded tires are another hot topic...I plan to go to Micheline 16" tires and wheels to improve tire reliability, and add a lift kit to get more ground clearance, since my drain connections come close to dragging on driveways. and extra 2-4" clearance would be nice.

We also upgraded to a tankless water heater because DW loves long, hot showers. It paid for itself the first outing after I installed it.

Solar systems are another possible upgrade. The factory-installed system is IMHO, not worth the money because the output and pre-installed wiring is inadequate. We installed a kit from AMSolar with much higher capabilities.

I tow with a slightly undersized Toyota Tacoma, but use a ProPride (Hensley design) anti-sway hitch system. It may be overkill to some, but to me it's peace of mind when I get exactly ZERO sway under any conditions. Not a cheap upgrade, but peace of mind is priceless...

There are other strongly-held and diverse opinions about all the above, and they may be worth a read. This post kind of describes the rationale for choices I have made as a husband, father, dog owner, and engineer...

SCD,
If you want to try it out for a season, buy a used unit in the 2 - 4 year old range. If it's not for you, sell it at the end of the season. You WILL NOT get hurt too bad if at all. Once Airstream's take the initial depreciation hit, they are pretty stable for the short term. Popularity is increasing so it's the supply vs. demand thing.
And...as others have said, there is NO WAY you're going to rent ours!! 😁

There is an Airstream Park at Punta Gorda, Fl, that I understand some people have rental units. They are set up on a lot and do not move out of the park. The name of the park is Paradise Park. You would not have the fun of traveling but you would experience what it is like to live in one. Ted
