1959 18 footer? Globester?

Hello Airstreamers,
It is with a heavy heart that my wife and I have decided to sell our 1959 shiny bubble. We have been told that we have what is called an "18 footer". I have also researched and found perhaps it is a "Globester" or Globe Trotter". In any case I have not found an exact match in floor plan layouts looking at archived materials on Airstream's website. One thing to note: I'm fairly certain one of the previous owners added the small window at the rear driver's side, where the bathroom was.

My first question in this thread is to ask if anyone out there can identify what model this is?

My second question is how best to value this for sale?
We replaced the axle, subfloor, and everything interior is custom built to match the original layout except we took the bathroom out to fit a fixed queen bed in back.

Features include:
Original Princess stove / oven that works amazingly well!
Built-in propane furnace
19 gallon metal water tank
low voltage water pump powered by battery
retro striped canvas awning
