You did see it listed last year. I listed it for a month last fall and had some interest but I had some health issues to focus on. Now I’m back up to par and I’m ready to sell the old girl.

It's hard to be patient but the right one WILL come up for sale. 280s seem to come for sale on a very regular basis, it's just a low amount on the market right now.......

Here are a couple things to consider with that one in WV. From the amount of mold and dirt on the exterior it looks to me like it's been sitting under some trees unused for quite some time......baaaad.

Big ole dent in the rear roof drivers side. can't see all of it, third picture look closely to the rear roof above the windows.......not an easy fix and may be interior damage if the dent is deep enough.

The dash board has severe water stains, LEAKY WINDSHIELD.......probably needs sealed or a new gasket.....$$$$$

Not enough pictures to accurately assess the interior.....

If they aren't answering your attempts to contact I'd say that pretty irresponsible right? Well.......

So try not to get too disappointed, that one looks pretty iffy to me. The biggest thing is the amount of dirt and mold on the exterior. Pretty good indication it's been sitting for quite some time. That's NEVER good!! You want to find something that's recently been used and put through its paces.

Patience will pay off big time for you.

It's the whole rain, and parked over tall grass that makes me shudder.......things can't be good under there.

It is on the opposite coast and it may be a several months but our 280 diesel may be on the market. We have a bit of sorting on the 345 we just purchased and we are still camping in the 280. We do not plan on keeping both coaches so once we are happy with the 345, the 280 will go.

Interesting '88 345 for sale on "Airstream Hunter" Face Book.
group...

Says its an original '88 factory Cummins.

Description below...

1988 Airstream 345
Warwick, NY
$35,000
1988 Airstream 345 Motorhome – unique Cummins Diesel engine / Allison Transmission combination, ONLY ONE of this engine combination made in 1988. ~107,000 miles. The back was converted to sturdy bunks with light-weight cedar. Lower bunks great for small kids. Solid wood (oak) cabinetry throughout. Couch folds out to full bed. Kitchen table also folds down into bedding. In all, sleeps 7 (we’ve done it!). New radio with bluetooth and USB. 6 USB power outlets also installed. WeBoot cellular signal booster installed. APEC reverse osmosis water filter installed on kitchen faucet.
Had the ceiling resealed November 2017.
Some slight blemishes to exterior – a previous owner rubbed into concrete barrier at a gas station (see back left corner, second image). We have since changed banana wrap around bumper.
Original manual with full documentation of maintenance included.

Here is a pic of the Motor, and it certainly looks just like Wxbouy's factory installation!

Smartstream feel free to message me details. It would be stored in the winter anyway so there isn’t a rush. But I would love to know the configuration... at this point that one in WV is the only one that has been remotely “near” me.

So I adore this 26’... but I think it’s too small for 5 of us. The twin bed setup seems better for our family so that I could install bunks. Thoughts?

They did make a 26 with bunks above the twins. Ronnie and Vickie Corbett who are members on here have one.

They recently moved back to UK from Cali, and the MH is sitting in storage waiting for them to decide; ship or sell. Unfortunately the spent the weekend at the same rally as we did with our Argosy so I suspect the chances of them selling is pretty low at the moment.....they have caught the bug again!
