Thumbs up

Thank you so much Gary - I would never have thought of looking in "Service".

I have now found all the info I need, except the exterior width, which doesn't seem to be on any of the dimension lists.

Wheelbase ratio seems to be o.k.

However, if it's 7'6" interior, I'm presuming it wouldn't be more than 8' exterior.

We're allowed 98.5 inches max. and 70% of the wheelbase rear overhang.

There seem to be many Airstream enthusiasts out there - any particular reason for this? I know very little about the relative merits of USA RV's.

Mine's 96". That was the standard for years until Federal Hwys changed to 102". 7'6" inside + 3"walls.
The following comes from the iconic aluminum sided trailers & later motorhomes. The perception is that they are well equipped, expensive when new & well built.

Hi again - I really want an Airstream, but am finding it hard to locate one.

I have however, found one or two - one is a 1990, reasonably low miles and clean except for the back corner of the bedroom where it's obvious there's been a leak. (Wallpaper all wrinkled). There is no delamination at all.

(Advert said "no present or past leaks")! I'm not sure whether to buy it or not - can I trust this dealer to be telling it as it is?

Question is...are they aluminium or steel framed, or timber? I tried to find this info, but so far haven't been successful. Would make a difference to what damage has been suffered, if any.

I would appreciate your thoughts

They are steel. If you go to land yacht (u r now in general more ho) & search delamination u will see what can happen .mine had some leaking u will find damage by pushing on inner & outer walls where are you what's the price & no don't trust anyone. Find out for yourself now or u will find out later.
