I believe we found the guy on Yesterdays Tractor, he said he was a "hot shot" trucker. Great guy, worked his @ss off right beside me as we hauled the 345 out of the woods and onto his trailer.

The biggest issue I see with this particular 345 is the left front fender. It's gonna be tough to find a replacement.

It sold for ~2500, flashed by really fast. Too much for the work involved. Right lower rear segment to repair front left fender.

Iíve been trying to find a shipper to transport my 94 360 from Colorado to Michigan. No takers.

Going out in September to drive it back. Just been difficult putting the time together attending to my momís care.

Hey Kota, my schedule is quite flexible and I'd be happy to go quite soon and drive your rig back east for you.

If I remember correctly, you had it pretty well sorted out before you left Colo. Spending some time on the road in a DP 360 would be a treat to experence.
Just cover the expenses and I'm all over it.

Send me a pm if this is of interest for you.

Cheers Richard

Since the front panel is no longer available, the only chance to get the compound curve is to do a partial over lay starting at the fold under the side window with a rear right lower Trailer panel, which is, last I checked, still available. Have to find the drawing I did some time back for this fellow from England. Not sure if he ever followed up on it.

Is burning man the only reason people out west buy rvs?

Based on CL posts I would be inclined to think it is

Uh, no, its actually driven by the need to get out of the SoCal high desert during the summer.

For example, it's 111 degrees Fahrenheit out here right now. Sure glad I'm working INSIDE...

Itís pretty much road worthy. Itís got two issues to resolve before it can be driven back. The airbags sag on the road. I think itís a leveling valve problem. Iím planning on putting 4 new bags on it. The originals are pretty cracked. Iíll put Schrader valves on them and just run a fixed pressure for the trip home. I cleaned up some hacked up wiring mods. Lost power to the starter solenoid and transmission controller in the process. I need a week or so to get it in shape. Thatís my issue in getting it home. I havenít been in too much of a rush. Itís costing my $150 a month to keep it under a roof in a dry climate. Itís in a good place till Iím ready to start back up on it back here.

Thanks for the offer!

If that is genuine, it looks like a reasonable buy.

1990 Airstream motor home it has approximately 20000 miles on it. This motor home still needs some TLC but is priced accordingly. The motor home has some dents on the outside and the tires are in good shape. It is powered by a 454 throttle body fuel injection and a turbo 400

Looks legit. I think I saw that one listed last year for a bit more.

That is a serious contrast in what can happen to an Airstream over the years, those last three motorhomes.
