Dream Come True
To the best of my knowledge, there aren't many Airstream's in Anchorage, or even Alaska, so imagine our delight to be able to purchase a 345 with only 33,000 miles on her. This coach has been stored indoors all of it's life, and is in pristine condition. It has the large Isuzu diesel and the Alison transmission. Can someone please give me an idea of the value from an Airstream point of view?
We are life long Alaskan's planning to tour the rest of the "states" in the next few years.....this is our first motorhome, so we are very excited. Neither of us have been any farther East than Phoenix, so are we looking forward to seeing all of the new sites.

Thanks for any information you might have!!

Hi and welcome to the forums. What year is your new MOHO?

Wow - what a find! Welcome to the forums. Check out the classifieds section of this site as well as for more info on the value of your "new" 345.

I've been watching prives for about five years and have seen 345's (gas) go for as little as $15K and as much as $45K. It all depends on condition. An ISUZU power plant is a plus. Low mileage can be good or bad depending on how it was stored. (Many older coaches give up their engines early due to lack of use).

345 Gas models are fairly prevalent in the market, more than most of the other classics.
A nice one went for 18700 on Ebay this week, but as Steve said they are all across the board. The diesel version is rare though and should add a nice premium to the value...if all else is in good shape.
Meanwhile enjoy it- you should have a blast traveling.

Welcome to the forums. What a lucky find for you. The 345 is a beautiful coach and of course the diesel makes it perfect. I use my Isuzu Diesel quite a bit here in Wisconsin during the winter time and have found a block heater to be be very beneficial. You may want one up there in Alaska if you are going out in the wintertime. These coaches stay very warm inside even on cold nights.
I hope when you visit the lower portion of the U.S. you will make a stop here in Wisconsin.
