Thats a pretty rare bird. 30' slide out should really hold its value. Did it say on the tag what it weighed? Make them an offer all they can do is say no.. or yes. .. or make you a counter offer to which you can think about. To this point you haven't been in much risk of buying a trailer except at low offer that you set and you now know at minimum what they really want out of it.

Have heard the company has no interest in building future slide outs. Which boads for the future value of this trailer. Sort of like having the room of the old 34s without the length maneuverability issues. Plus they are kind of novel everybody wants to come over and check it out.

Details of '01 ?

Buying it is automatic membership in the Slider Fan Club.

The Sticker on the wall of the Trailer says it GVWR 9100 lbs, 8158 UVW, 60 gallon fresh water 504 lbs, 13.3 Gallons of Propane 60 lbs leaving a Capacity of 378 Lbs. I can't find the Tongue weight of the trailer looking on the Airstream website. I guess I'd need to ask him to give me the actual weight. I'm guessing I'd have to work on the AC, Refrigerator. He offered a walk through, and to make sure everything worked, but I'm worried about everything being 15 years old.

Paul,

If you're uncertain but interested see if you can find a trailer inspector to walk thru it with you. A sound frame, skin and no signs of leaking are the biggest points if the price is right and you keep some reserves for fixing.

Not sure of your possible tongue weight but my '07 is over 1K.

If so, how does it handle & brake. It would be slightly over truck rating if fully loaded but wondered if it might be manageable without moving up to a 2500 series truck
I have a 30' 2016 AS Classic and tow it with a 2015 Ford F150 EcoBoost 3.5L V-6 with a 3.55 rear axel ratio. This particular engine / axle ratio had a maximum towing capacity of 12,000 lbs. I also have the max tow package and a ProPride hitch. So far the AS / truck combo is working well - I increasingly believe that the ProPride hitch is central to our positive F150 / 30' AS Classic experiences. We just concluded a 4000 mile trip to NM, AZ TX trip. Good luck. Dennis
