Research the used value of an Airstream travel trailer.
Demand is currently high for Airstream travel trailers. It is a seller market. People are reporting new Airstreams are taking 6 to 10 months when ordering from the factory. Parent company, Thor Industries, reported during an earnings call that they had $8.92 billion worth of unfilled orders as of October 31st, 2020.
The backlog of orders resulting in long waits to receive orders is causing increased demand for used Airstreams in good condition that are available immediately. If you are buying an Airstream, expect to pay a premium and reasonably priced trailers to sell fast.
Airstream historically raises prices in January (3%). Trailers that leave the factory after January 1st will reflect the new price. Two price increases in a year is not uncommon. We expect prices to be raised again in late spring 2021.
Airstream sales usually increase right after the new year as people begin planning for spring or summer camping. It is expected that the supply of used Airstreams will increase when some of the people who recently purchased a trailer during the pandemic decide that they are no longer interested in ownership. You may find lower prices if you delay your purchase, but there has been no sign of Airstream prices going down in the near future.
