Is this a fair price??
Appreciate any quick responses
Hi, if this trailer is in great condition as you say, it might be worth the price. Forget NADA, I think they are always too low for Airstreams. Concerns to look for are water leaks that can and will damage the subfloor. This is quite costly to repair. Also dents or scrapes. These mean panel replacement in most cases and could cost thousands of dollars to fix. Hail damage almost always totals an Airstream. Plan on buying new tires and batteries right away. Batteries are usually good for about 3 years and tires good for 5-7 years by DOT code. You can always offer less than asking price too.
