That's 55,000 USD. With a year of depreciation it would equate to $51,000 or so today. But you are looking at a 2013 which is a year newer, which would add back $4,000 or so, putting it back to $55,000. You can get it for $46,000.

Is this deal making sense to you yet???? (assuming it is in really good condition).

Don't over think it

I'm not Mr. Experience when it comes to buying used Airstreams, but I do know my wife and I spent TEN YEARS years comparing this to that and the other thing. Then balancing cost vs. value vs. anticipated number of nights a year. Then looked at external costs. Bought a TV . . . and a new tent. Then another new tent, etc. My garage looks like the display window at REI. It was always Airstream, not an SOB, but we couldn't seem to pin down the one we wanted or pull the trigger at decision time. Don't wait 10 years like we did!

My advice would be if it's what you want, and you can honestly say you've done your due diligence, then go for it, Carpe Diem.

That is a fair price.
I feel I know the current market since spending the last year looking for the same exact size and twin beds
We purchased a 2014 for a little more and drove 1,000 miles to get it

I had started a thread asking how to calculate value of pre-owned AS and got a lot of great advice from AS owners and shoppers. I too will be a first time buyer. The check I have been using to determine fairness is (MSRP x .8) - $7000 (Initial depreciation hit) - $1,500 per year up to 10 years. Other factors obviously contribute to final value and each has to be evaluated on its' own merit but this is how I have been determining "rough" value in my search.
So for the unit you are looking at $70,000 x .8= $56,000 minus $7,000= $49,000- 4 years old times $1,500= $43,000. So $46 K is roughly the right price and is in the fair range. Good luck.
