To follow up on Kevin's thought, I use jaded mash. While it was far better before they got in squabble with craigslist. It hits several online buyer/seller venues.

As with others - keep looking. I spent 12 months looking for what I wanted, factoring cost, distance, condition, etc.

Was this the trailer out in White Rock? The price was high if it had the problems that you mentioned. But don't let the appliances, etc. deter you as they can all be replaced fairly easily. You just want to adjust the price to allow for their replacement.

Yes! It is the one from White Rock! Really nice folks. He put some effort into it, so I imagine he wants a little return on his investment. Did you go out to look at it?

No, I saw it on Craigslist. Despite having one, I'm always looking to see what comes up for sale. There's a 20 foot Argosy that just came up a few days ago. That one might be worth looking at.

@ Cameron, do you know of any one in Vancouver doing good repairs and restorations on Airstreams? You know anything under 10K is going to be a project!
@ Kevin, are you saying the Argosy is in Alberta??

No, I'm saying there's a 1978 23' Airstream in Alberta you might want to consider. Click on the link to see the trailer ad.

Prices can vary - we paid way less than $10k and ours wasn't a project.

Sorry, no I don't. Yes, chances are any trailer that is getting close to 40 years old is going to need work. That work will cost you time and money, or someone else's time and even more of your money. Maybe factor that possibility into the equation and raise your budget to get a newer unit, needing little or no work.

I paid 8 k for my "restored" 72 Tradewind, a liitle high as I put a new fridge in it soon as I got her home. Over the next 1.5 yrs I put another 8k in it for everything from a furnace to axles to custom curtains and wood veneer paneling. Month after I was done she got stolen.
