Doug, there seems to be a few out there, but it is not an easy search. Some seem to be overpriced. I just purchased a 2004 30 ft w/slide. It was low mileage and seems to be in good shape.

One thing I was alerted to was to be aware of the possibility of water leaks, especially from gaps in the caulked areas between the front and rear caps and the roof. A leak at the rear can show up in the rear storage compartment.

I have seen a case of delamination on the sidewalls. Not sure what is the cause or fix for this problem.

As far as I know, the 2004 and 2005 used the same Workhorse chassis, 8.1 l GM gas engine, and Allison transmission.

I found the NADA RV guide to be a fairly accurate guide to Airstream motor home prices.

Keep us posted on your search and progress.

Doug; Don't know of any serious problems with the LY. WE are very satisfied with ours. Some have the Allison and others the GM transmition on the workhorse chassis. The 8.1 engine is a real powerhouse. Leakes around the end caps are common to many manufacturers and not unique to Airstrean, just a maintenance item.
At auction a 2004 - 2005 would probably be purchised by a dealer for around $50,000. and is about the trade in value. Good luck with your search.

I have a 2004 Land Yacht 30' that I am going to sell. I never use it, and it has spent most of it's life in my metal building.

Miles are 7500, and price is $53,000.00

It is in excellent condition, and it hasn't been smoked in or had pets in it.

Let me know if interested, and I will call you.

Thanks

The classifieds are for selling items, rather than repeatedly posting the item in threads.
