Question 22 foot airstream on craigslist

**AIRSTREAM**22FT**1965** - $6500 (STREAMWOOD, IL)
http://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/rvs/1740332260.html


I wonder if the airstream in this craigslist ad is worth having checked out? I see it has been remodeled but not in AS Style. I can't even see the kitchen inside?

Should I set up a inspection or call this guy? I have seen this trailer on craigslist before and he is still trying to sell. He also did not have great pics.


I really don't have the $ for a AS right now but also don't want to miss on a good deal.

thanks!
Karen

PS: I do not live in Streamwood but west of Aurora, IL)

22' trailer

karendee, I don't know where Streamwood is from you but I would look at it or have it inspected. My fear would be the extra weight on the frame and running gear from all that wood interior added during the re-model. Ed

buyer beware!

I would say to contact him and get him to post photos more photos, etc. Ask him for specific area photos, that he would have to take and post if he owns the trailer. It is my understanding that people have been known to pull photos from already posted sales and use them. Get serial number of trailer, type of title. Have water system checked for leaks, black water tank, fresh water tank, do appliances work, inverter, etc. Is the floor sound, the frame good? What are the decals on the lower panels and front panels?? Could be a heck of a deal. Interesting that it hasn't sold before. The photos on the post make it look very nice.As you are already aware of there are a lot of scams on web based selling, Craiglist, etc. If Streamwood isn't to far from where you reside, take a trip to look at it.

Maybe someone in the area of the seller would look at it for you. Good luck!

Thanks for the advice! I did not think about all the wood and the weight.

I will think more about this one.

Pass on that one. We've seen a lot of "cutsie" coaches that were worthless mechanically.
