2002 CCD International

I have been shopping around for my first Airstream and need all the help I can get! I am attracted to the styling of the CCD versions, white cabinets,more modern look. I have found a 2002 for about 29,000. Is that about what I should pay? What kind of offer would be fair?
Is there any quirks I should know about this year? I read something about the wheel well axel being changed after this year due to problems???I would like to buy a used one and save a bit, but also want it to be the right "first" one.
Any buying advise to find the right 22' would be great!
Thanks,
Sandy

These trailers had issues with frame problems; there was an update kit that helped fix it. A lot of them had floor rot, especially near the rear by the desk/bathroom. It didn't help that the floor was OSB rather than plywood. There's no belly pan either.

Spend some time reading up in the forums so that you know what to look for. Personally, I think $29k is a bit high, given that 2007ish 23-foot trailers are going for only a few thousand more.

Sandy,

First of all, welcome to the forums. Almost anything that you want/need to know about Airstreams can be found here. Someone has always been there and done that, but more importantly is happy to share their knowledge about how to do it.

Try using the Search menu in the tool bar and search for Airstream Inspectors. You can probably find someone in your area with experience to go and look at the AS in question and give you an opinion. The cost varies, but most will do it for free or a minimal fee, like a cup of coffee or maybe lunch. Keep in mind that most people will do it only within a limited number of miles from their location. Once you find a possible inspector send them a private message and discuss the particulars with them. Another way to find someone willing to do an inspection would be to start a new thread with something like "Looking for Inspector in the ??? area," or at least words to that effect.

Good Luck with you purchase, I hope that all goes well and one day to see you on the road. Post pictures of your new Airstream after you get her.

Happy Airstreaming,
Rion

Inspection Report form

Sandy,

One more thing, search the forums for the Airstream Inspection report. If you cannot find it, please send me a private message and I'll email you a copy that I downloaded sometime back. I just can remember from where.

Cheers,
Rion

Ccd

Hi Sandy,

I own a 2003 22 ft. CCD, the same model you are looking into.

I'll give you the pros and cons:

Cons:

• Previous post is correct, check the frame and rear floor. I had my frame repaired before any problems began and AS covered the cost. Wasn't so lucky with the floor though. There was a leak in the rear bumper area for years before I discovered and I had to have 1/3 of the rear floor replaced. It was not cheap, but AS did a great job and it's not leaking at all now.

• If you can can deal with the wet bath it's kind of cool, like being in a boat and it saves floor space, but some people think it's too cramped (the shower).

• Same goes for the desk, it comes in handy if you need a space to work but if not it's kind of wasted.

• Front bed layout is fun to sleep in but again, can be cramped for 2 and it's very difficult to get sheets on and off.

Pros:

• Great floor layout, open and bright, with lot's of storage and counter space.

• Easy to tow. Been using a 6 cylinder SUV for years and works well.

• Also easy to get into smaller spots in campgrounds.

• Lack of a belly pan doesn't seem to make much of a difference, I just think it's one less place for critters to hide!

Good luck in your search.

James

We have a 2002 22' CCD and love it. No problems with floor rot. We did have problems with the frame cracking, but it was reparied well and we now have no trouble with the frame (several thousand miles on it since the repair). We bought the CCD when it was 2 years old and paid right around $25,000 from a private party. So $29,000 for a 2002 sounds quite high to me. I wouldn't hesitate to buy one provided the frame repairs have been made and confirmed, but only at a more reasonable price.

James,

What kind of 6 cylinder SUV have you been using? What kind of mileage do you get?

Cheers,
Rion

I have a 2006 22' CCD and love it. The bed was small, I remodeled it for a Queen size bed and now we sleep great. The desk was wasted space so I moved the wardrobe back there. We love the trailer and average about 50 nights a year in it.

Check the frame and $29.000 seems a little high

You can get a lot more and newer trailer for $29k. The asking price is often way over what they will take.

Stay far away from trailer models with known defect areas.

Rion,

I've been towing with a BMW X5 inline 6 for about 3 years and before that I had a Honda Ridgeline. They both have been great vehicles, but definitely prefer the X5. Better mileage all around.

So...2002?

Everything I have found and read indicates problems with the frame and wet floor under the desk at the rear bumper - for 2003-2005. But I'm not seeing specific posts or recalls about the 2002. I have sent a request to Airstream to clarify. There seem to be several recalls on 2003-2005 but not 2002. If I were going to go look at one - what should I look for.
