Didn't take any myself, too busy crawling around underneath!

Indeed, the exterior is rough, and the upholstery needs serious work too.
But the list of mechanical and electrical repairs/upgrades by the PO on this baby is astounding! Virtually all of the expensive items one worries about on these units has been taken care of. So it's really just esthetics now.

I will start a new thread this MH soon, as I will need lots of advice from this kind and generous group. What a terrific resource you folks are!
Not at all, congrats!


I think the 350s have the nicest interiors, but am leaning towards getting a smaller 310 at the moment anyway, will be excited to see what you have to post about it!

I think someone's bubble burst, as the last time I saw an ad from this guy he had one of these two 325's listed for $95,000.00 CAN.

I wrote the guy a detailed message a couple months back. It easily could have been taken rudely; but I inject personal experience and try to be humble at the same time. I'm all about people getting top $ if they can, but I did explain that currently as a Canadian I can fly to destination drive one back for a fraction of his desired price, and I did. I encouraged him to evaluate current prices in the USA. At $40000cad that seems to be something that could be sold. A savey buyer could still shop around( but can come with massive risk; which did not work well for me)also he is a dealer in Ontario so I'm sure he can help on getting financing which 70% of people need these days imo

It's daunting buying/selling from out of country but gets easier the more you do it I'm at: 5 vehicles purchases:
-34 5w
-34 5w
-34 3w
-34 plymouth 4dr
-82 airstream motorhome

Selling I've sold:
-34 Hudson to Texas from Alberta
-34 5w to Scotland
-34 5w to Oregon

Kijiji does not work when copying links or trying to open others.

Can someone load the argosy/ airstream from New Brunswick off of kijiji
It's been on there for 5w now. I phoned the guy talked with him, I'd buy it if it were not the distance 4000 kms is to far and I doubt I could resell after that transport.

$3500cad or $2800usd it's a bargain considering it has a nice shell and all it's windows and motor runs. Didn't post here because I wanted for myself��

RE: someone's bubble burst

I saw this post but for some reason, I can't find it to reply to it...

So, what are the risks to buying across the border? I live in California but I get nervous about purchases from someone or a company in Canada or Mexico.

I assume there are enough club members in Canada, I would be able to find cautious and try to find a local AS club inspector.
Are there laws about "importing" a motorhome into the US?
Anything else?

Process of importation is super easy. I personally have zero experience with Mexico and I wouldn't trust anything on that front personally. Canada/USA are very similar. 72 hr notice to the border crossing is required, you can fill out the paperwork yourself at the border. You need an " itn " ( identification number). save you $300 dollars or more Self clearing; use a broker if you want but it's unneeded.pay applicable taxes( state sales tax if it applies) and away you go.oh there's a a/c unit tax($100?). I cannot speak to local registration etc; don't you in California has over the top emission controls? There is a list of inadmissible vehicles. ( for example a Chinese car lol)I'd check that just in case, after 25 years even those can be imported( though getting on the road is probably not possible)

I wouldn't think twice crossing the border for another vehicle. Best way to start is find a day to set aside to be able to phone USA customs/Canada customs. Phone a transport company that does cross border( I've used turbo transport twice)ask questions. It's hard to find the questions that you want answered I find expect to spend hours on the phone if you want to understand the entire process in a bulletproof manner

Not mine but an hour away from me if anyone is interested. I might be able to Go down and take a look for you. It is too high of a price in my opinion since it has original flooring and 100k on motor. Guy was on forums for a bit.

I like the (2) 345's... why do you think they haven't sold yet? Both seem pretty reasonably priced...

A friend with a newer "Box" RV told me to be careful about getting an older Airstream trailer or Moho because a lot of RV parks have an age limitation... so, how does that work? Are AS's blocked, even if they are refurbed? Or do you just go someplace else?
