What year did Airstream go to the "wide body" style? I am thinking 1996 or 1997.

Argosy price

At least $5000. I have one that is pretty straight w new upholstery and I would not sell it for less. At that price it would be a good value for a smaller trailer compared to what else is out there.

FWIW, the 21' Airstream will probably be worth about as much in five years as it is worth now. Hard to estimate but I'd guess this Outback model will depreciate rapidly.
