Bill,

You have a 54 Liner? Does it have holding tanks? We did a little reading and saw where you can install small ones. Have you ever heard of that? And if so, can it be done without taking up the whole floor?

It's all up to the value you think is there. 500 to 1000 is a good price for it. If you are willing to put the $ into the restoration. It looks unusable as is.

The shell is in good shape. The dents on the font are from jack-knifing and most likely not "pop-able" due to the creases. The line dent on the curb side may be rollable, but not completely removable.

Why do you think the hitch is bent? Can't tell from your pics.

Depending on the haul, you will need to back the bearings as well as new tires.

Everything on the interior is there but needs refurbishing/refinishing.

Plumbing, electrical, sealing, cleaning, flooring, upholstery, etc... Adds up to $$$$ and time.

Again, it's up to you to how much you are willing to spend and dedicate time to the restoration.

Koko,

The Liner had no tanks originally, not even a water tank. I installed a water tank in front of the axles below the floor, ganged two gray water tanks behind the axle and one black water tank, all three are below the floor.

If your floor is gone down the center, you may also find it damaged around the edges. A full floor replacement may be in your future.

you cant tell from the picture but the hitch is bent upwards slightly and the locking mechanism will not latch .... you can see a bend in the hitch from the top... i am not really worried about it as i can weld a new one on .... i was just concerned most about fixing the floor...


thanks

Send a message via AIM to bredlo
I'd let him know you plan on giving it a great home, what the additional costs would be and if he can be flexible, maybe offer another $500 and let him know that's your ceiling.

Ask him how much more and try to negotiate from there. If he comes up with some crazy figure because he's seen what some sell for online explain how much work his needs and how expensive it is to rebuild these things. Don't give up and stick to your max price. $1500-$2000 is still not bad unless it's more than you want to spend. Explain what it'll cost you to get it towable as well.
Good luck.

Hey guys,

If the seller is watching this site, you are not helping Koko in his quest to own a vintage Airstream.
