Best way to sell an Airstream?

I apologize in advance if I'm posting this in the wrong section.

A couple of years ago I was gifted a 2005 Classic 31 from my grandparents who were simply too old to haul it around any longer. I haven't used it much and am not enjoying paying insurance and storage fees for something I don't use. So, I'm considering selling it. My problem is that I have no idea how to go about selling a travel trailer.

It is stored 30 miles away from my home and I can't imagine having to drive out there each time someone wants to take a look. Are a sufficient number of photos added to a for sale listing usually sufficient or should I expect to show the trailer in person each time someone is interested?

Other than here on the forum classifieds, where should I list it for sale?

Should it be priced as NADA guide value or for what others are being listed at in various classifieds? I see a pretty big difference between NADA value and listed price online.

I appreciate any and all advice. Thanks!

NADA values are not anywhere near what your airstream is worth. I would check here and other places airstream trailers are sold on the internet. I would also check craigslist in Portland, Seattle, Boise, Sacramento for values of anything close. I would try posting on craigslist, and screen out potential buyers for seriousness and my guess is you will only need to show it a couple of times. Best of luck.
