There’s also this one in Mesa, an 06, 77,000+Miles, also looks in great condition...I called these folks this am but have heard nothing back.

May check with them again on Monday, just to see what they have to say.

That rear bath is the same colour combo as mine.
Looks nice.

Interestingly my 2006 had the Airstream 75th anaversary emblem, but I dontí See it on this one.

Good luck!

I like the mid bath best, both the rear doors opening and bed in the rear, but Iíve had that and donít have to have it again.

I donít mind the layout of the 07, and the bed is in the rear but the configuration different...tho that is okay.

I have to say I like the interior colors of the 06 better, because itís what I had.

Thereís not much in the way of older models out there, is the truth.

I'm late to the party on this thread, but here's another suggestion for you:

Feel free to PM LB_3 or I if you get down to the wire on any unit and need to confirm certain conditions. A whole hell of a lot can be accomplished efficiently by using Facetime.

In particular, pay very close attention to the plumbing - that's one of our areas of expertise. The T1N plumbing issues are so model-specific that they can be missed by an inspector (our inspector took hundreds of bucks from us and totally missed everything).

To be worthwhile, though, the person holding the phone for the Facetime session would need to be willing to crawl under the chassis in order to point the phone at very specific areas. None of this rubber-stamping stuff for us.

Uncorrected plumbing problems in the T1N have a street repair price of about $2,500, according to other people who have posted about them historically.

Thanks, IB.

Buying an older unit, I don’t so much expect perfection as I do honest disclosure of any existing issue.

I have pictures of the underneath, would you like to take a look at them? Everything looks a bit dusty under there, but I see no rust nor obvious flaws.

If you do, perhaps pm me your email address, and I will forward the emails containing those pictures to you. I could post them, but there are about a dozen.

If you found a problem, we could post that and you could explain what you found.

Going to have the salesman on the 07 do a FaceTime with me on Monday, have him turn everything on and off and show me that it works, and will do the same with the 06 once I reach a human being.

Hittenstiehl already discovered that the outdoor shower is missing the entire length of its hose and sprayer head, which could have been due to a freeze there at some point, or it may have just worn out. I know that ours has been replaced once.

Or outdoor shower could have been detached during winterization and purposefully not reattached. We do this as we don’t use it. This way it won’t be used unknowingly and then missed during winterization.

Ahhh, thatís a possibility, tho it doesnít seem to be inside anywhere.

I rarely used mine, but for the occasional bathing of Lily after she rolled in duck or rabbit poop.

Before you do the FaceTime walkthrough, send them these photos and let them know you want to see the grey tank fittings:

Where are the wet bath and vent line fittings located?

I will forward the pictures, and thanks for looking at them.

Feel free to post here the picture and narrative of anything that concerns you.

There should be 6 emails with photos in your inbox.

Many thanks to IB and her husband LB_3 for examining about 2 dozen photos of the 07 undercarriage and engine.

They had a couple of suggestion for things to examine, which could not be seen, but pronounced everything shown looks pretty good.
