Best Price Airstreams

Hey everyone Im a first time buyer and still getting over the sticker shock of airstreams but after much searching found a 1 owner 2017 25fb international signature in good condition with no extra options for 63000 $ is that a pretty good deal ?
I wanted to ask those who have had experience buying and selling airstreams
Many thanks

Is that a good price? . No cause I don't like that model and I like all the options.

Does it fit the layout you want? Have the standard appliances you require? does it have ST or Lt tires? Have enough sleeping positions? Will the tove vehicle be enough/ etc. etc. etc. Can you find a better price? Does it fit the budget?

If price is the only thing then something else might be the best.

Yep, it is a sticker shock.
1). Look up the model in NADA book. Although that might be low.
2). Price out what a new one like that goes for. Although today many come with lots of options because most want them.
3). Realize that you can get 15 to 20% off a new MSRP when buying.
4). How many miles on it?
5). What kind of options are missing? No awning? No rear camera? Only one AC/HP unit?
6). How much would it cost to add a power awning, a rear camera, etc?

To me a rear camera is a must. Power awning is essential. We also have a convection oven which functions as oven and microwave (nice). Two AC/HP units REALLY nice for a host of reasons. Not sure I would buy an AS that size without 2 units since the units can be noisy and it is nice to run the other unit on the opposite side whether sleeping or lounging. Much quieter. But that’s me.

By the way, the advantage of buying used is the previous owner has gotten most of the bugs worked out of it.
