Wanting to view Airstream Interstate 2006-8

We are considering purchasing a 2006 Airstream Interstate motorhome. The unit is in Minnesota & before finalizing the deal we would like to see one 'in person'. Is there anyone in the Austin, Texas or Dallas/Fort Worth area that has a 2006-8 Interstate that we could look at? The unit we are considering has the front dinette & asking price is $55,000. Is that a good price?

I'm not near you (in MT), but recently purchased a used 2005 Interstate in WI. An amazing RV!

A couple of thing's I'd recommend:

1. Check out for the ballpark market value of what you are interested in buying. $55K sounds kind of high, unless there are no miles on it. Use NADAGuides to negotiate.

2. More important, since the RV is in MN, take the RV to a local Airstream dealer and have it thoroughly checked out. It might cost you $200 for a bumper to bumper check (not the Mercedes stuff -- the van -- but the camper stuff). Be sure the camper was winterized correctly in MN. If not, it's expensive to fix.

Mine checked out on all levels, and I'm glad I had that confidence when I started out on a 10K mile road trip. And I got a good deal .

Hi 2TEX,

We are not close to you, or would be glad to show you our 2006 rear-sleeper Interstate, which we bought new in 2007. Did want to vouch for the unit, which we have driven 63,000 miles and absolutely love.

Good luck on your purchase.
🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️

Sorry I haven't looked at this forum in a long time. I live here in Austin and have a 2005 Interstate and really like it. You are welcome to look at mine if you would like.
