We went to look at a private sale airstream on Sunday. It turned out to be farther gone than we wanted to mess with. However, in chatting with the owner, he mentioned that a small auto dealer down the road had a 50 something airstream on their lot.
We drove down to look at it but as it was Sunday it was closed so there wasn't anyone there I could ask questions of. Someone drove by and said "Everything is open if you want to look at any of them" (this is a tiny town hehe.. so they do things the old fashioned way I guess). At any rate, we got in and looked it over a bit. We snapped as many pictures as we could inside during the 100+ degree weather and I probed around a little. EDIT: Dealer said it is a 1959
Here are the pictures we took... hopefully some of them will tell more of the story than I know to at this time (just getting into airstreams):

We are looking for something to be in more of a stationary setting vs. something we are going to pull down the road.
Looks like some flooring under the sink in the bathroom was replaced, and there was some spray foam squirted in the join of the floor and interior wall behind the sink area.
What should be in the closet under the electric box? Looks like a vent to the exterior... or is that just where the cord goes through?
I called the number off the sign today. The gentleman was very nice but doesn't really know anything about airstreams (town of less than 2,000 and so this is really just a car lot that has expanded into other stuff people have traded in I gather.... some tractors and heavy equipment there too haha)... at any rate, he said that everything that is there works except that the fridge only works on 110v, not on gas. That would be fine for us right now as this will be stationary and can be plugged in full time.
Is this enough info for a ballpark figure on what some of you would offer for this?
We currently live about 200 miles from it, (moving to a town nearer there in Aug which is why we were out that way looking) so I'm trying to get well-educated for when I drive back to check it out and possibly negotiate.
My wife loves the look of the trailer, so I'm already getting questioned as to why it isn't in our driveway yet hahaha...
Thanks for your time, any info, and suggestions or points in the right direction!
