I have not heard back from you as of
yet. I gave you an email address in my reply to you.

I might be able to help you but I am in NC.

If you are serious and ready please reply to the email address I gave you. OK?


Yup, sent from my iPhone 6Plus to Airstream Forums

There are units in your price/interest range available but all appear to be outside Washington state. Use Google with advanced search terms to locate offerings at other listing sites. Examples:

Message me if you need any original interior pieces (dinette, couch, etc). I have a 1984 excella that I plan to gut in the summer. Everything is in great condition, just not the right layout for me and the wife. Best of luck with your new venture, don't let anyone stop you!

What a great site and wonderful group of folks. Like MichaelT, I am new to the forum but not new to trailer camping. Here is a depreciation article that might be of interest though I don't think the Airstream line follows it exaclty. http://www.camperreport.com/rv-depre...bly-want-know/

I would greatly appreciate your thoughts in identifying the best Airstream diesel motorhome by year/model to consider as well as any tips or things to look out for. This would our first motorhome but I have already built a 30x30 14ft tall carport with RV hookups and have money laid aside for the right Airstream (though I might need some of the money to extend the carport... It is such a large purchase, I just don't know what model/yr that would be at this point. Our needs: we are retired with one son (6ft4in) and two standard poodles at home who would be traveling with us for up to one month/trip. Usage would be traveling to Colorado mountains, helping with Christian builders projects or perhaps attending an Airstream rally. Our initial thoughts are: around 30ft, diesel, cold climate capable, good A/C, twin beds for us and bunks for son/grandkids that has been well cared for (garaged, maintained). Thanks for listening and I would appreciate your thoughts and/or follow-up questions. Should I start another thread or stay in the one MichaelT started? Thanks

Welcome and good luck, Walt!

I will watch your progress here, Walt. I am sure many folks have considered an AS MH the size your looking for; 3 adults, 2 dogs, long term stays, diesel, etc. (Not sure the length your looking for--perhaps 30' + in length?)

Not sure AS makes something like that these days new in anything over 25', but lets see what the experienced AS members recommend. Happy hunting!

Hi Gypsydad

I don't believe AS produces MH's anymore (even if they did I couldn't afford them) but I did run across a 1999 AS Cutter (diesel) and a 2000 AS land yacht xc diesel 36ft that "looked beautiful" & priced within reach but have no idea what I could run into when trying to get them road ready (i.e. tires, batteries, radiator, hoses, belts, filters, brakes/trans/engine flush, etc). I have read on the MH forum where the guys are talking about rewelding rear axle brackets, replacing suspension parts, etc. I guess someone on that forum has done it. As someone recommended to MichaelT on this thread, I think I am going to try and visit an AS park in hopes of finding some MH owners to help educate me and keep reading everyone's comments. My wife really wants to try the MH route and I really want to try and keep it running in order to make it to all the places we envision traveling to. Just not sure what the ongoing costs & effort would be to keep something like this road worthy. I like to tinker but the thought of having a mechanical breakdown while traveling in one of these beasts could take the fun out of it rather quickly.
