airstream fire

This airstream was burnt to the ground a few weeks ago. I think it was a 31footer (SUNfoto by Bryant Furlow) An abandoned Airstream trailer in Hernandez went up in flames Tuesday in a suspected arson. Firefighters from the Española, Agua Sana and Chamita fire departments arrived to find the trailer completely engulfed in flames.

I am really kind of surprised that the first propanr tank did not take out the remaining one....hmm. I guess those Worthington tanks are worth the money.

I suspect it vented as designed.

Could an arsonist be involved? Traveling accross North America in SOB, searching for AS to burn, in revenge for having been scammed on Craigslist?

Jackie, we bought our airstream on craigslist. The people we got it from were very nice. and what made it better was we only paid 2,000 for it. Sandy

I bought my AS on Craig's List. Paid $1,200 with no title. Gave the seller 1/2 until I was able to clear up the title mess. Six months later I paid him the remainder. By the way, after spending many hours and days of wasted efforts - I sent my paperwork to Broadway Title and within 10 days I had my AS title.
