I wonder if the winner will follow thru this time. He had it sold last week for 8500, but it just reappeared on Ebay. No mention of the prior auction. Makes you wonder..............

This 78 Tradewind

I had it tracked as winning 12/28/03 for $10,702. The second bidding 1/11/04 topped out at $12,400. There was absolutely no name correllation between the bid list from the first to the second. Both bid sessions went over 20 bids and in both cases the two top bidders were first time entrants. In both cases there was one bidder that was a pretty consistant player through the whole bidding period and lost out. Mighty strange. If 70s period Tradewinds can top out over 10 grand in a slow off season it makes my investment look pretty good. If they keep up this frenzy I could trade up to a brand new one.

The words "new carpet" or "new hardwood flooring" should set off a DANGER DR. ROBINSON reaction in any prospective Airstream buyer.

I keep a file of Ebay listings such as these, as well as ads from RVTraderonline, VAC, and of course anything that turns up locally. I want ammunition in case a total loss causes problems with the insurance adjusters.

It seems like there was an 80s model 25' that brought $12,000 six or eight months ago. It caused me to up the declared value of my coach.

Whoa! Whoa! Hold your horses here! We are in the process of replacing the carpet in our airstream. Oh, it had been recently replaced, and was in good shape.
Why would I want to do that, you inquire? We-ellll. We bought the trailer mainly for dog shows. Ahem, pay attention here, it came to my notice after doing several shows, that dogs and travel trailer carpets do NOT go together! Even immaculantly groomed, non shedding dogs.
While we usually only have our two in the trailer, at times we have had friends stay with us, or visit, and added another three to five poodles to the mix of ours and the humans, too! And we're talkin' standard poodles, not those little puff balls! LOL!! At fifty, sixty, or more pounds, that's a WHOLE lotta dog having a good time!
(Any wonder we bought a 31, and are looking for a 34?)
Anyhow, there are no water marks on the plywood, and I'm getting very antsy about getting the cork tiles I bought glued down and doing their job! I can't wiat to have the new floor down, and being able to damp mop and be done!

"We are in the process of replacing the carpet in our airstream"

I would hate for anyone to take offense. After all, I installed new laminate flooring myself to cover up that gaping, I mean to get rid of the filthy carpet.

But floor rot in an Airstream is not a joke, and the quick buck artists are out there. A similar favorite is the car or truck for sale with "fresh paint". The question which should leap to mind is, "why?" In the case of a used Airstream I'd pay extra to get one with a bare floor.

Interesting

Aviontt,

The same seller has that 76 Ambassador is parked in the exact same residential driveway as that 78 Tradewind. Must be a prop location.

Cool Well, I have exactly the same trailer...

...except that mine has a dinette in front and a double bed. Plus a couple of minor Genuine Airstream Dents. If someone wants to take mine for $12K, let me know immediately!

I just did a search by bidders, to see what else those people bid on. Rather interesting......
I like to do this every once in awhile.
Besides, that way, I can catch my kid buying junk again.....javascript:smilie('')
