Vintage Campers Website

I'm not sure if this is where I should be starting this thread or not but please bear with me. Vintage Campers website has 2 units I am interested in. A 1972 Overlander and a 1968 Avion 25'. I'm wondering if anyone here has dealt with them before and what kind of experience was it. I love the breakdown of info they give but since I can't get down to Peru, IN. I'm hoping someone here can help me out. Thanks in advance.

PS. I have never purchased a trailer before so it's all new to me.

Tim

Tim...welcome to the Airforums...you are in the right place to find the information/help you need to make a good decision...there are certainly folks here who will have had experience with these units... Checking out the subforums on various years of Airstreams would be a good place to start... Here's the link: Airstream Trailer Forums - Airstream Trailer & Motorhome Community

Good luck with your search and welcome to the party!

Sweet

Thanks for the heads up. I could have sworn I was just on buy/sell earlier and didn't see it. There is also an argosy in Ont that I have to investigate. It's late...getting sleeeeeeppy. Thanks for the help Cameron. I'll let you know how the search goes.

We are planning a trip to the island next summer for my niece's wedding so I want to get something in my driveway over the next couple of months so my wife and I can personalize the trailer before we use it.

Congratulations! I am a very recent Rivet Master. It seems that once you get started, it just kinds of steamrolls.

Holy Moly Safari. How many do you want me to buy? I'll check out the 780 area code tonight. The 1973 argosy is sold and the 1977 airstream tt argosy is an unusual ad. This is the second time this guy has advertised this trailer and both times that I called he told me he didn't want to sell it. When I was asking questions today he told me I didn't sound interested then hung up on me. Oh well, I'll keep plugging away. Take care and thanks for the leads.

Tim

Hey Tim, just providing options.

As for the for sale/not for sale guy, I can understand that feeling a bit. I've at times listed something for sale and immediately after the phone started to ring thought to myself what was I thinking?

Good luck in your searching.

Barry
