Thumbs up 1987 Airstream 345 on Ebay looks good!

This motorhome is currently around $11,000 on Ebay. It appears to be owned by a retired teacher in Tennessee. Owner claims to have over $20,000 in receipts. Seems mechanically fine and looks beautiful!
It has about 3 days left.... Item number 2493584698

I saw that one today. Sure is pretty. Too bad I don't need two!

here is a link for the internet challenged
Seriously thought it looks good, wonder what the reserve might be? There is also a 360 and a 310 on there this week.

For you 345 owners...how is the rear end drag on driveways and such? Even with my airbags up I am really close to dragging on the inclined departures, but manage to avoid it by angling and going slow...and mine is 6 feet shorter than your coaches.

The 310 is particularly interesting since it has the rear seating area/twins/king that is very rare (as opposed to 'ebay-rare' which is not really rare but more like common). I need pictures of that one for my site! It also has the front dinette that most do not have. The dinete gives you one more sleeping area than the barrel chairs that are usually there.

Alan,
I've not had a problem with rear end drag (on the motorhome anyway ). If there is an extreme transition I'll angle it as well. I get pretty interesting looks from people if they are waiting for me to get out of the way!

You can drive mine around in CC...we'll find some hills for you to test it out on

got my unit hung on the trailer hitch last weekend. wouldn't move an inch, i mean hung. was on black top road, hooked a pu to the hitch and draged it back about a ft and backed out and tryed a different approach.
we built a acess road to the farm and it was perfect untill the gravel trucks, dumped too much gravel at the entrance.
they can and will drag if you dont watch it.

Al - I've never been hung up but I know what you mean about driveways. We live on a city street which has an extreme crown to it. To make matters worse our driveway drops about 18" in 3 feet to meet the road.

Pulling in nose first is no problem but when I back in I typically approach at about a 30 degree angle and try to get the right rear wheels up on the curb (it's about 4" high). I have just kissed the skids before but found if I build up the pressure in the rear bags and let out most of the pressure in the front she'll make it with a few inches to spare. I also make sure I'm not full of water and fuel when doing this maneuver.

I've had more than a few neighbors come up and tell my wife (who is usually spotting me during this move) "there is no way he's going to make it in there" ....and then they watch me back right up the driveway alongside the house and behind the fence.

Skid Wheels

I slapped my hitch a few times in my 345 but never got stuck.

Here's a solution from Camping World....Skid Wheels.

When I first got mine i headed up a side road in Helen, Ga to park for lunch. The road had a steep entrance from the main raod...well I dragged my hitch, got it stuck into the blacktop a few inches and it made a heck of a noise pulling it out. The traffic was backed up while I jockeyed around to move without tearing it off. I sure felt stupid. Have not done that since though I have scraped it a few minor times.


Also while on the sales of EBAY MH...check out this rare Argosy, 24' but with a rear bedroom! Got to be very unique, as all the 24's I have seen are rear bath.
This looks like it is a nice unit for someone to jump into.

Alan,

I have 5 Argosy 24 foot models with rear bedrooms on my site. I will inquire about adding this unit since the pictures are good and there is a floorplan!
