What about this belly?

Could someone look at the under belly of this unit and see if it's scary. I'm still looking for a unit to live in while in school in Northern California.

Thanks for looking at the pics. He has this listed on the Forum as well.

Thanks for any imput on the belly or anything else. (Yes I know the living area curtains need replacing)

I don't understand how you can copy and paste from ebay and not get the right item... I tried it one more time.

The corrosion on the pan looks like the reaction to being against the steel frame. The seller commented that the pan is not aluminum, but I think he is wrong.

I would guess that the trailer was near the ocean for some time and the salt water caused the corrosion you see.

Except for the corrosion the trailer looks to be in very good shape. I would be concerned about the condition of the frame.

Why not!!!

Since it is at the owners Airstream dealers lot why not ask if they could look at the frame (at your expense) and give you their assessment as to the condition of the frame? It would be money well spent up front to know the condition prior to purchase. Or make it a condition with the seller to have it done as a sale pending required inspection. Happy Trails, Ed

I looked at many airstreams about that age before buying ours and it looks pretty good compared to most.

I agree with azflycaster- and it is way more corrosion than was on my '72 belly pan. Good idea, too, to let some of the pan down and take a peek up in there. Might not be a frame-corrosion issue at all, but you don't want that surprise after you've won the bidding.

I'd be wanting to look at the brakes, just in case it's BEEN in salt water.
