"Only 4 manufactured for 2 yrs by Airstream. Please do your homework, before calling."

LOL! This person gets an -F- for their "homework"! While the true number may never be known, it is much higher than 4!

Yeah but he did miss one trick as the early grille 28ft was a one year model not two, then they changed to the 'square' grille'.....there's a lot more than 4 but still pretty rare.

Do you think they backed into something? Any idea what that would cost to fix?

I see that you perked right up LaniKai , on that 310. I would too if I was looking.

Rear bed, body looks nice in the pics. Don't know about availability of the rear glass. Bummer it's so far from you.

Maybe you can locate an inspector locally to check it out for you.
Good to see there are no buttons missing on the cocktail chair or sofa :-)

Only driven twice. Twice belt broke and engine ran hot. If the motor is bad, they gave hints.

Oh I'm here everyday. I actually have one in mind, and have a verbal agreement right now and had a wonderful inspector look at it today. The current owner wants to fix a couple of things before he sells it and I"m trying really hard to be patient. It is quite a ways away and I'm reading everything I can and trying to make a good decision. Airplane tickets out to see it first, or wait until he fixes the things? To ship and how? I got some quotes and am leaning towards Uship after we buy it. I figured out that almost all the people who gave me quotes were only brokers and Uship and I can do that. So much to learn and it is still taking a chance even if you do everything right. Exciting and scary.

I would never finalize a purchase until I see it personally.
How would Uship deliver it, flatbed or drive it?

Yes. Need to see it. Uship is more like a way to interface with drivers or shipping companies. You either post and ask for bids, or post at a set price and then people respond. It would need to be delivered "low boy" flatbed I think. Most of the companies giving me quotes seem to be brokers who put the job up on boards anyway and there is no guarantee of shipment. If the price is to low no one takes the job. I can do that through uship I think. So much to learn so fast.

My experience is that Uship is just a way to post on the Central Dispatch system the same as going through any of the brokers, and just like using a broker, the price estimate is just what they think it will cost and either attracts or distracts the actual drivers into taking the work. All of them are one-way estimates and assume/hope the driver themselves will pick-up a return (again from the Central Dispatch) to make it worth their costs

Hmmm..... 46 bids in the first 10 hours of this listing (although it looks like many are automatic)

1978 20ft Argosy

Must be one of the last 20 footers

Do you really want to miss the opportunity to do a maiden voyage in your new coach? Unless it's a project to get it running , why not drive it home yourself.
What a bonding experience and adventure.

I headed out right after buying my 345 from Fla. Heading to Az. Great trip.
Admittedly mine was a live one. Not needing too much right away.

But really these are road machines, meant to travel.

If you have the time. Put the monies from the shipping costs into tires, parts, tuning etc.
And head out for adventure.

Cheers Richard

It should be ready to go, but my DH can not take the week off from work and we are both a little worried that a hose will blow or something half way home. I really would prefer to drive it myself. I can take a week off, but we have several trips planned and he needs the time off for those. So, drive alone 2,500 miles? If I could take my dog at least I would feel better. I guess I do have two friends who offered to do it with me... OK. You got me thinking about it again. The owner is currently dropping the transmission to replace leaky seals and replacing the torque converter while he is at it. It has been sitting covered. How many other parts might go on the drive? I really want to drive it home, but not sure I should.
