Is there difference in resale value between twin or queen

From perusing the AS Classifieds and other sources I think I may have detected a higher price for used trailers with twins as opposed to the same year and model with a queen bed. Obviously this is far from perfect price discovery, but, if there is a clear preference in resale value that would be important to know.

I am not asking the merits of twins over queen, only if there is a real difference in resale value as there is no difference in new price between the versions.

Thank you for any assistance or guidance,

I donít think so. That would be based on the buyers preference.

Twin or Queen?

I haven't done any research to compare resale value of twins vs queens, but it wouldn't surprise me if the twins have slightly higher resale value. There is certainly more of a supply of used Airstreams with a queen bed compared to twins.

I've been in the market for a 2016 or later 25' rear bed twin and there are very few of them. Hard to determine the demand side of the equation, but if supply is lower, it wouldn't be surprising if people were willing to pay a little more. I would.

Hi

In terms of current sales, the twins sell pretty well from what I have heard. The degree that they are "rare" on the used market may well be a function of people hanging on to them. That may simply be a function of twin buyers being more certain it is the "ideal" answer for them when they buy it in the first place. ( = less likely to trade it in )

I wouldn't ever consider a twin.

Hi

I think the answer is that people who want twins have done the research and know what they want. When one comes in, they grab it. There are a lot more people who are a bit vague on the advantages of the twin layout and spend a lot of time looking at the queen arrangement. That's not to say that there is only one way to go. It's just the the twin purchasers are ready to go when one comes in.

Most couples think queen because that’s similar to their home sleeping arrangement but twins have a much more practical usage of floor space when in the bedroom but not to sleep. More room to dress for example. IMHO. We wanted queen at first too but decided on twin for that reason.

That's part of it for us certainly, but the single large storage underneath a queen allows the practicality of large item storage. And a lot of it too.

I think the twin bed was introduced to help birth control in place of planned parenthood donations. I really don’t believe it would affect the price or value of the coach unless it owned by a porn star

Worth mentioning twins are the longest bed length. Ask me why I care

Hi

Well, if you look at it, the twin has "way more storage space". The outside storage on the twin is ahead of the queen by quite a bit. The basic AS design is far more deficient in outside storage than inside storage.

It just depends on how you look at it ...

You might want to look at the resale value per foot of trailer and year of manufacture. I think you will find that those two variables have the largest effect on resale value.
