1953 Flying Cloud on German e-bay

Hi all,

-I donīt know if this is the right place to post, if not please (dear moderators) move this threat to the right place in the forums.-

There is an 1953 Flying Cloud on the German e-bay site. Item No. is 4515944292 under . Everthing seems to be in original shape, exept the fridge is missing. Can anyone of you help me with an info on what "the market" is asking for an price for a rare airstream like this? I am not selling this trailer, but I think of buying it although it is not the 1973 (my year of birth) Sovereign I am looking for. At the moment the price is around 5400,- US$ or 4100,- Euro.

Any help is very very welcome.

Thank you all for posting on this forum, it is already a part of the daily life for me.

Best wishes to all of you from our side of the big pond.

I'm no expert, but $5000 probably a seller's price in the US. Although that trailer looks to be in good condition, and certainly could get the price on occasion in the US.

One problem in giving you guidance is the inherent lack of knowledge of the supply curve used to determine the price in Germany or using a larger area, Europe. It is hard for someone in the US to have enough experience with the number of trailers that come available to know much about the supply curve.

In the US we can even see differences in pricing depending on what region of the country the trailer sells in. While eBay has whittled away at this, the pricing differences now tend to be limited more by the amount of money it takes to move the trailer from one location to another. What you may want to do is use the following link to get an idea for pricing models here in the US.

Hi Marc and Kimber,

thanks for the reply.

FYI the trailer was sold for 6850,- Euro (about 9000,- US$), but not to me...

all the best from Germany
