1985 Excella on my local CL again

This Excella came up on my local CL again, at a higher list price than when it was listed a year or so ago. I know it sold a year ago, so it's not the same owner.

https://fayar.craigslist.org/rvs/6175428477.html

Text from the ad:

"*****1985 Airstream 34ft excellent condition!!!!!*****Price drop!!!! - $14000 (Bentonville)

This is a 1985 Airstream owned by older couple. It is immaculate on the interior with original couches, beds, you name it. You would be hard pressed to find one in better shape. Normal oxidation on exterior. I have two newly filled propane tanks with it. I have never used it since I bought it. The price is firm! Please no tire kickers, trades, or offers below asking price. Title in hand."

I guess "value" is in the eyes of the beholder. The unit looks decent and if it checks out in the critical areas (floor/frame, etc.) it would surely be cheaper than new. I paid $13.5k for my 1989 31' Excella 2 years ago, it was ready to camp as bought, everything worked, solid floor/frame. Since then I have upgraded the tires/rims to 16", bigger/low profile a/c, replaced carpet on floor with a "floating" tile floor, spent about $5k so far making it "mine". Point is, it doesn't look like a real bad deal, so what if someone is "flipping" it. My RV tech said mine is worth $25k as it currently sits, not that I would sell it, so an AS tends to appreciate at some point, especially to the right person... Maybe you should consider buying it, I would, but I have two RVs now, lol....

This Airstream looks like a good one to me. If I was looking, I'd definitely consider it.

If I ever get another RV, it'll probably be an Avion pickup camper, or maybe an early 80's Silver Streak. Or an Avion/Cayo Motovator, or......
