I'd love to stay in the AS family if I can find the right unicorn...a '95 DP Classic...but I think only 24 were made? And if someone does start the classic vs. LY page let me know!! (If I knew how to do it I would...I know a LOT of people who will argue both ways.) IMHO Interstates need to be thrown in with LY's....just saying. But, build wise, my LY XC may not look like an AS on the inside, but everyone who owns one knows it's all AS on the inside. Lastly, I am really REALY having problems finding out what to price my '00 LY XC Diesel, 77k miles, not mint but I'd give it an A- in overall condition (plus like I said I've gone full tilt with electronics upgrades to bring it into the 21st century and 1000 watts of solar panels, 2000 watt pure sine inverter, you know, all the usual crap we blow our money on when we buy an Airstream.)

p.s. what's wrong with owning more than one AS? IMHO nada, especially rare ones =) Considering I have no idea what to price mine, and it does well on the rental market, I'll probably just keep it anyways. I kinda feel I got screwed on my trade-ins for my AS anyways (the '99 bounder and a '99 Avion FW) that I'm not trading this in for the Newell anyways, but I still have no idea where to start on the private market cause prices are JUST ALL OVER THE PLACE!!! and nada guides aren't any help either...)

"Interior lovingly and carefully taken out but too many projects to finish."

Another one bites the dust. Good intentions followed by years of malaise.

Cheers

Love the funeral coach, tho I would not sleep in the back, it could be a great toy hauler. Glen Coombe used his as a mobile golf showroom. It was very cool

We have a 28 footer that we have an uncompleted restoration in progress. My husband has Alzheimer's and I cannot drive it. It has a rear bath in great condition. We changed the foldout bed in the back to two twin beds (one on each side to allow easy access to the bath) with storage above and below (original). We had it carpeted when we bought it 10 years ago and had planned install hardwood or cork , but my husband's health plummeted and we need to sell it now. We took it to Airstream headquarters in Ohio for the winter the first two years we owned it..... they checked everything out, windows, airbags, mechanical, added a TV antennae, replaced loose rivets, found no leaks, rust or other concerns. We replaced the microwave and refrigerator with new. (electric only fridge, never been used). The original upholstery was recently washed on gentle cycle and looks good. Leather captain's chairs are in excellent shape. We are in the process of replacing the vinyl stripes and polishing the aluminium on the exterior. It has one dent in the right rear roof where someone backed into the tree. It does not leak. (you cannot see it unless you get on a ladder) It has been in storage for six years. We bought new tires a year ago and will have to replace the batteries before selling. We drove it from Knoxville to Pigeon Forge and up our mountain last March, after we had it in the shop replacing the wiring. We plan to finish the restoration before the Rod Show next year, here in Pigeon Forge in order to sell it there. However we would sell to someone interested in finishing the project. If you know anyone looking for a 28 footer please have them call me. When we stored the RV everything worked, got 15 mpg and looked great. Thanks 865 567-9505.

@ B Jeanette D

First of all, thank you for posting, and my respect and admiration for your strength in dealing with the challenges you face with your spouse. I purchased my coach from a person who's health was poor and who's spouse has Alzheimers. It made them very happy that their pride and joy was going to a good home and would be well taken care of.

May I be so bold to ask if your coach has the Isuzu turbo diesel option? It would make a huge difference in resale and desirability.

Cheers
Tony

You shouldn't have any problem selling it and getting a good price for it. Good luck! Dave...

I think the 28 footer is one of the best looking lengths.

Maybe I need to get a small plot (so I don't have to worry about grass cutting!) with a shop in Richmond so I can tap into the local resources?
