Lightly used 2017 19' ....

Ran across a slightly used 2017 19' International Serenity. Perfect condition, 1 year warranty left. I understand from the dealer the 19' model is not being continued. Approx fair value??? I believe it can be purchased for slightly under $60K, but can not find any "market data". Any help appreciated. Bill

That would be a weird move..the 19' is a VERY popular trailer, and a the only small rig of a major model lineup (Flying Clouds).

I understand from the dealer the prior owner traded in on a 25' version. It looks brand new. Thanks for the reply, newbie, just trying to gather some info.

Well, if you assume you can buy a shiny new, 2018 model for 80% of MSRP, I'd think your trailer, with one year of warranty gone and it being used, should sell for something like 75% of current MSRP, if it's in like new condition.

Wouldn't that make it right at your $60K? A bit of dickering should get it below that.

The Airstream factory warranty is not transferable to the second owner. You should factor in cost of an extended warranty.

We Transferred rhe Mfg Warranty

We successfully transferred the warranty on a 16 Classic. An AS dealer must inspect and provide a report that you forward to Jackson Hole with a completed application. Cost about $250. Good luck.

Check out Ewalds Airstream in Hales Corner, WI (Milwaukee), and talk to George if you'd like. They have a 2017 19 ft. at $54,518 - has back up camera, and oven. I bought my 20 ft. there in November. NEW. No I don't work for Ewalds, but feel my experience with them was a good one. This 19 ft is also NEW.

Difference between 19' 2017 Serenity and 2018 Flying Cloud?

A fellow newbie here- just before this past Christmas, we purchased a 19' 2018 Flying Cloud (4 trips so far) that has Bambi branded on the back. Funny thing is, when it comes to naming our trailer and new tow vehicle (bright Red F150 4X4- last two trips) I came up with Serinity and Firefly after the great sci-fi movie classic(s.) The names just made sense (but I have to assume many others have done the same thing- it is just to classic?)

Even though expensive, wife and I are both architects and there was never any question about Airstream- it is simply the best design! I also liked our local dealer specializing in Airstream and they are only 7 miles away. So we did not haggle much and spent a little bit over 60K. I do not know how our Flying Cloud compares with the "Serinity."

I hope this provides you a data point and I am curious to see if anyone pipes up with insight on the name Serenity and how the 19 Flying Cloud is evolving?

Would you mind letting me know the process you went through to get the warranty transferred? Does it cover the coach bumper to bumper? My dealer took our 2016 Classic 30 in as a trade on a Classic 33. That coach was only 3 months old. I was told by my dealer the warranty was not transferable. The same dealer handled all transactions. They then extracted another $4300 from me for an extended warranty.

CMTampa - not sure to which post you are asking your question. It wasn't a problem on my new 2017 getting two years of warranty since is was new, and bought from a dealer.

Transfer Warranry

We purchased our 16 Classic from an individual in CA through the AS Classifieds. The seller delivered the unit back to AS of Orange County, the selling dealer, for a prepurchase inspection. I dealt directly with the service manager by phone, and he included the warranty transfer inspection report in the inspection. I sent the warranty transfer inspection report to Jackson Center with my check and got a certification of warranty soon thereafter. The transfer is actually accomplished by the substitution of the new owner’s information for the original owner’s in AS’s registration database for the unit. It was easy and fairly quick.

I don’t understand the confusion and contradiction surrounding this issue. Good luck.

Yes it is. Only the appliances are not transferable. Just confirmed with Randy McNeely who one of the folks charge of warranty repairs at AS.
