You'll want to post it in the classified ads section on here, with lots of pictures

If I were closer to you, I'd come take a look. It's only 28 degrees out here too. But that's probably like summer to you guys

Happy Easter.

Hello jamesv and welcome to the Forums! Take a look at for a guess on pricing. I also would refer you to the classifieds section here -- browse past ads in your category to get another idea of asking prices. You'll get a lot more views in the classifieds than in a thread like this -- people don't necessarily look in forums threads for sale items.

Sorry that your Dad didn't get to use his Airstream more. You can post it for sale in the Classifed Section of these Forums. As stated above, you should post a LOT of pictures. You will need to take these pictures with a digital camera at the lowest pixel setting. This they will post without you having to go back and reduce the file size.

As far as pricing goes, go on Ebay under AIRSTREAM to get an idea what the going prices are. Remember that a vintage Airstream's value is based more on its condition than on its model year.

Maybe a Forums member in your area will see this posting and be willing to come by and take a look at your Airstream. This person can assist you in testing your Airstream's systems (electric, water, sewage, ac/heat, appliances, etc.). You must have this information for potential buyers unless you are willing to let it go for a give-away price.

Good luck.

I don't live too far away but will be unavailable until the 18th. Let me know if you have time on your hands to do it after that. It sure sounds like your storage conditions would give you a better than average value.

I'm not sure you'll find the 'real world' on eBay. We see prices there zoom unrealistically in the last hours or stay way too low. eBay is a rogues gallery of jewels hidden amidst the garbage. If your unit The Price vs. Condition website is updated regularly. Browse the classifieds here or at The Vintage Airstream Club and judge pricing and effective sales format for yourself. Unless you follow closely it may be difficult to judge asked vs. actual sales price, whether here or at VAC or at eBay.
