2000 Excella

First of all, Hello everyone!!! It's been a long time since we have been here on the forums. We have been actively looking for another Airstream since we sold the Tradewind. We have found a 2000 Excella that we are probably going to get.

We have checked it out thoroughly and everything functions properly, floors are solid etc. The only thing wrong with it is that the previous owner took the couch out for some reason, so we will need to get one. The asking price is 7500.00 Just curious what you all think? Is it worth it? I immediately thought something must be wrong with it for that price but we have been over it and can find nothing.

Thanks

IMHO, any 2000 year model Excella is a steal for $7,500. What length is it.

We were happy to pay $25K for our 1999 Excella 1000 - 30' in pristine condition. You have the potential of a great buy there if all is well. A couple pedestal captain's chairs and a small table/cabinet between them and you are golden.

If it's got a clear title, grab it and run!

Yes it has a clear title, it came from an estate sale. I thought it was 25' but my wife says 26' and she is usually right!!!

Airstream's docs say there was a 25' and a 28' Excella in 2000... but Airstream has been known to call a trailer one length when it's really longer, so maybe it's a 25' model that's really 26' long and you can both be right.

Well, we just came from the bank with check in hand. We are packing all our stuff and heading up the vintage ralley at Misty Rivers. Tonight we will stay with my brother and sis n law (Kern72), in their 67 Ambassador. Hope tomorrow night we will be sleeping in our own. If not, I guess we will sleep in the truck since we made reservations already,lol!

Thank you very much! We picked up the Airstream this morning. Been cleaning and putting everything in its place,lol. Love it, Love it, Love it!!! I sure have missed having one. I think we got a heck of a deal. We found the papers where the original owner paid $38,900 for new. I do have one question, where is the outside jack to hook up the cable? Cant seem to find it. they have hidden it very well,lol!
I will post some pictures as soon as it quits raining!
Tammy
