I replied in the other thread but will answer here as well. Our 1987 345 has a sticker at $110,000. I'm sure we've put at least that much into it since we bought it a few months ago!

When I first insured mine, the company wanted to know the orig cost, so I contacted AS and was told approx $120K in 89. I know I have all the addon invoices just after purchase (ie. GV overdrive, extra heaters, banks header system howard steering system, and more) bringing up the price to over $140K.

The invoice on my 95 Classic 360 Diesel showed $172,000. That was with every option offered. I can't imagine paying that kind of money. I figure the OP had to have put at least $220K into it between interest, taxes... Lots of money for something worth about $30K today. Almost as bad a big boats.

I'm going to bring it home from storage to start gtting it ready for the spring season today. I'll snap a picture of the dealer invoice later,

I don't have my original invoice, but I wonder if the above prices were for the gas version? If, so, I'd guess another $10,000/15,000 would be tacked on for the diesel.?

I would bet YOUR money on that Mike!
As I said, these are base prices, and no way do they include the really juicy stuff like engine and other options.

Derek suggested someone post this thread after I found the prices, and as Dakota says, its both cool and painful!
Took me about 2 hours to type it all up, but seems to be a good idea.
As soon as we get some of the original invoices uploaded its gonna get really fun!

FYI for those of you from the Excella and later M/H's sections reading this. I only did the Classic. Maybe someone should do the same over on your respective sections?

I was going to include the link to the Airstream page where I got this info, but based on my past history of trying to do that, they change the layout regularly, so the links die.
Anyone who is interested to look at where I found these prices can look at Airstream.com
Then click the Service Tab.
Then the Serial Number Tab
Then select your era... 1980's or 1990's on the left side.

Note, that from 1992 on there are no SRP's listed again until 1999.

I agree with you that you better save this information in a couple places, as it does disappear from these sites as time goes by.

I have saved and printed every document I have come across that applies to my unit.

Go figure eh??
They don't even list the CLIPPER on the Airstream site now.
When I do another search, I do find it listed under the "specifications" for 1996 floor plan.

When I was at JC in 2009 the only person left who knew what a CLIPPER was, was the retired gentleman giving the tours.

We bought "Bess" the diesel in 1994, she had 28K. Paid $45k. She now has 227k, burns no oil, gets 15mpg; I'd say we got a good deal. (Of course, we're on our second or third of everything, except the bottom end of the Isuzu.) It would have to be a pretty stiff offer for me to sell her for anything under 60k, or when my niece takes the keys away when I'm too trashed to cruise anymore.

My orphan

I sure wish I knew about how I have a 1982 24' Airstream motorhome when the factory doesn't know it exists......one more funny thing...the top cabinets that have the tambour doors.....there is one that is not the same shade or color of the others....it is the one behind the passenger seat....it is beige and the others are pinker......it almost seems as though they run out of the other color and just put in what they had......since they didn't make it anyway, what difference would it make?

I didn't notice it at first but on our trip out, I was lying on the front lounge and looked up and lo and behold, that one was a different color.....it is more the color of the inside skin.......than the others.....go figure. paula

You might want to e-mail Tom Clancy and check around for hidden compartments; your orphan could have been made for the CIA.

Not: the turbo was listed (for the 28 footer) as 0-30mph-10.6 sec., 0-50mph-29.7 seconds. She is not that fast (especially with all the crap that full-timers drag around), but with the overdrive, I can pass farm machinery, if I get a run at it. I believe the longevity of our Isuzu is, since it was basically, a industrial, in place engine (gen sets for fishing boats), I run at, and do not exceed 3200 rpm and Bess has always been a long-haul coach.

Interesting, I have a 79-81 Airstream service manual and it shows the Isuzu as being 353 cu. in. and 130 hp @3200 rpm and 253 ft. lb. torque @ 1900 rpm. In the above link it lost 2 cu. in. and gained 20 hp and 36 ft. lb. of torque. The manual does not indicate a turbo which I think was offered in 82 while the above link indicates 1980 as the year of the coach. Also the in 82 the GVW increased to 14500 lbs.

Cheers, Dan

Double interesting, because our first mo/ho was a '79 28' Excella, which was turbo-charged, with the Mercedes-Benz style chrome letters.

Paula, I wonder if the difference in color is due to fading. Perhaps the odd door was stuck open for several years?
