This might need a different thread . . .

I found a 2015 International Sig 28 that is very clean for 75K. I also have a 2018 International Sig 28 at the dealer that is MSRP for 106K. A little math says 106k x 18% = 19,000. So 106-19=87K

I can buy used for 75K or I can buy new for 87K. Granted I know next to nothing when it comes to resell values on Airstreams, but a 13K depreciation for three model years doesn't seem like much. Is this normal?

Is there an industry quide to help determine the value of a used Airstream? The NADA book is a PIA to use.

That's why I was asking about the differences between the years. Trying to understand what the price is based on.

Thanks for the feedback, every bit helps.

Generally AS owners think their trailers are worth about double from their real worth.

Airstreams hold their value better than any other travel trailer.

I purchased a 2005 BH in 2007 for 38k used.

I sold it for 35K in 2014 as a dealer consignment at my local dealer. That price included having the dealer bring it back up to near perfect condition. It was a bunk house, which are rare and could have helped.

I've noticed that used prices have been going up over the last few years.

For used: Look for any filiform corrosion on a used unit. Filiform corrosion will not affect functionality, but it does affect value and aesthetics. Inspect the underside for rust. Insure all systems are in good working order. Make sure the floor is dry and solid, no leaks, no mold. New tires might be needed.

Thanks for the tips everyone.

The FC 30 bunk was our initial choice, but they're harder to find then an accurate weather forecast. After 2 months of looking, we still haven't seen a Bunk despite being surrounded by 3.2 million people. I figure if I look at enough Airstream Classifieds, RV Trader and Craigslist ads, at some point I should get a feel for pricing.

We've been entertaining ourselves reading through the staggering amount of posts on this forum. There's so much to be learned from here. . . . my head hurts

We have a 2014 Intl Signature 27FB and would be happy to answer any specific feature questions for that model year. Two things for sure: 2014 did *not* have ducted air, but it did have a built-in inverter.

Rocinante, I found your posts 2 days ago and read every word. Thank you for making the time and sharing your story. It was very helpful, especially useful to me are your cell phone solutions.

We're off to Oshkosh this morning (Airventure) for 4 glorious days of nothing but planes!
