In the process of selling an Airstream? Looking to buy a used Airstream but aren't sure what it's worth? While there isn't a single source for getting an Airstream appraised, here are a few ways to collect information on the current market value of an Airstream to guide you towards the best average price.
As the leading source of car, motorcycle, RV, and boat values, you can discover useful information about the value of an Airstream on the NADA website.

Because Airstream has such a vast history, only some of the newer model information is available through NADA (J.D. Power). Find pricing, specs, and more information by visiting the RV-specific page on their official website. Filter by "Airstream" and choose your year and model.
For Airstream RVs that aren't listed on NADA Guides (J.D. Power), a great source of information and for an estimate on the current value, you can contact an authorized Airstream dealership. Be prepared with information such as the year, model, and mileage (when applicable) as well as the condition so the dealer can provide the best possible market value and potential trade-in value.
If you're unable to take the Airstream to the dealership, you might be able to offer detailed photos or a video shot from your mobile device.
