1955 airlight 23'

Hi I'm new to this kind of thing but was told if I need information this was the place. We have a 1955 23' airlight, side entry and windows in both ends. I was told airlight only made these for 1 year the changed the name to el ray? Anyway I was also told this trailer isn't worth a whole lot because it's not an airstream. And that if someone bought it they would more than likely gut it. Everything in it is original and works including the refrigerator. We actually use it on a fairly regular basis. So I don't understand why someone would gut it. I'm trying to find out a value or worth that's somewhat accurate, doesn't have to be exact there's just quite a difference between $1500 and $15,000. Can anyone help me out with some info or point me in the right direction. Its very clean. I can't upload the photos for some reason from my phone.

Yes, i just want to know more about it and an actual reasonable value. I've had an off of $1500 yet I read another blog where a lady bought one that was gutted for $14k. Ours is all original and everything works.

$1500 seems very low, especially now that vintage trailers seem to be the rage. You can hardly buy an old white box clunker for 1500.

If I were you I'd take pictures of it and post it on Tin Can Tourists' Facebook page. There are very knowledgeable people on there and they see many different kinds of trailers. No one can give you any idea of it's possible worth w/out pictures.
