Advice for friend looking to buy first AS

I have a friend who is looking to buy his first Airstream.
He is interested in a 1998 AIRSTREAM Excella Classic, WDBY-28 located in Savannah, Ga listed for $17,500.
He is asking me if I think this is a fair price? What questions should he ask before he drives down to see it?
Also, any recommendations for getting it inspected in that area.
I would appreciate any guidance you could offer.

Hi Stewart. Has anybody spent any time in our classifieds comparing similar age units/prices.

High on my list would be whether the torsion axles have been flexed with periodic use vs. sitting constantly and taking a set. If "The A/C worked the last time I tried it" means it hasn't been used in a few years, that can only be proved by towing it to an area campground with 30A service and actually trying it out.
