My Airstream was lost in a fire... Dave 4-24-03  
I was hoping that someone here might know what a 1979 Safari 23' is worth. The insurance company doesn't want to pay what I think it was worth... Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Dave

If you show your insurance company some asking prices and selling prices of same or similar Airstream models recently advertised, they will likely negotiate a fair replacement cost for you. I would start by printing ads from the internet (eg. Ebay) and/or checking local newspapers classfied ads, etc. If the insurance company still isn't cooperative, I would threaten litigation and would speak to a lawyer. Its surprising how quickly they will begin cooperating when faced with having to pay for legal representation. Especially over a 24 year old trailer! This is small potatos for them, and they will want to settle this out of court as quickly as possible. You, on the other hand, should not be in a hurry and should not sign any agreement that you are not satisfied with. Good Luck!... and sorry to hear about your loss... tragic!

Find out what the asking cost was when it was brand new and subtrct 350 for every year. if the insurance company is even offering anything i would gripe about it, cause after all they dont have to pay anything ya know.

If you have been paying premiums to an insurance organization, they certainly are obligated to pay something for the loss. unless they are an unscrupulous
scam company being allowed to operate,
time from someone to shut dowm such companies. to tell some one they do not have to pay anything makes a person sound like a spokesman for such a scam company.

Recently I asked my insurance company how they determined the Fair Market Value.. they said they looked at the 'Trader' magazines and see what they are selling for 'person-to-person'. I asked why they did not use the 'blue book' value, he just said 'not the way we do it'. At this point, I think I should just put liability on it, and sock the rest away into a savings plan 'if I ever wreck it'.
