Need advice

Bought a house Jan '17, Airstream came free. I can't find any sites that host gutted trailers for sale or any credible websites. I'm an Airstream newb so go easy on me! Basically, I need help determining a sale price or contact info of someone waaay more qualified than me to tackle this baby! Reason for sale: Other projects going on. Too busy.

List it on the classifieds here and your local Craigslist. In my market, a shell in good condition goes for $3-5k provided you have the title, though your mileage may vary. Good luck.

Welcome to the Forums. Try looking at Craigslist, and especially any of those 3rd party programs that allow you to search all of craigslist at once. You will definitely find many gutted trailers for sale. In general (and in my opinion), the longer trailers (like you have) are less in demand than the shorter, cuter ones, and don't demand as high of a price. Similarly, a gutted trailer, which does not have any of the interior components left, is worth less than one with the interior parts intact. At least your interior "skins" are still in place.

You will probably find that people are asking anywhere from $1000 to $5000 for a trailer like yours (this doesn't mean they actually get what they are asking). It will depend on your local market whether anyone is willing to pay that much, though. One of the forums members was considering buying a gutted trailer of approximately the size of yours but without interior skins. Asking price was $4k, but I don't think I would have taken on that project if the trailer was free!

The title is another issue. If you don't have one, then technically, you don't own the trailer. So I would recommend you get that situation resolved up front. It can get pretty convoluted (and potentially expensive).

Good luck!

If you go the Craigslist route, be sure to list it in Austin craigslist in addition to SA. Someone in Austin wants it, it's just an issue of coming to an agreement on price.

I do have the clear title. Thanks for the suggestions. I have looked on CL and ebay, with misc results. I'll follow up to let y'all know what I find. Thanks!
