A few years ago hubby bought an Airstream on ebay... essentially a shell.... most (90%) of the interior was gone, and in poor shape for the floor just wasn't really there! He essentially bought a shell (pretty good shape, most of it) and frame. Knowing full well what it would take for a "restoration"! (Had just finished a different trailer) But, it was a desirable trailer to us, a 1955 Flying Cloud.... and it was at the "height" of many trailer sales. He paid $1,000 on ebay. He is still working on the trailer, but someday it will be a sweet thing. Bottom line, however, even at that ~ it was the maximum to pay for what he bought.

The photos look nice. Are there photos of the interior? Is there a floor? What did he do with the stuff he removed? Lots of folks would like the vintage parts he may have threw out or piled up somewhere, they do have value often! (working or not!) There are propane tanks, looks like it is tow-able.... but I think I have seen similar with less being asked.

Good luck on finding just what you want! Be sure and check out the listings here as well.

We bought a 62 Overlander gutted but did have nearly new roof ac for $950 about a month ago. Susan

Craigslist in our area has a couple $1000 Airstreams listed right now, one with interior, one without. And $1000 is just the asking price. So they are out there.

Hmm, battle ground you say? Weare going up to Idaho in March, I could tow one of those bad boys home! Maybe I should have offered $1000 but I have a feeling he'll come back and offer it to me at that price. ;0)

I'm going through the same search my friend!! I'm trying to find an airstream to renovate. My thinking is that I would rather buy one for a little more with the interior in tact because there's probably a lot to salvage. I'm thinking the toilet (which alone costs about $200 for the cheapest), the sinks, the oven, etc. I'm looking for one that the exterior is in really really great shape. If I could ask some of you guys on here: I found one that is $3,000, exterior is rusted, but no dents, interior is in good shape, everything works, but I'm planning on completely gutting it anyway. Is that too high? Also there are about 3 windows that need replacing, are those hard to find and how much do they run? You can visit this site for pics: 1967 Airstream Overlander International

Hmm well I am no expert, but if your planning on gutting it, then I would find one with less that perfect interior for a smaller price. Someone posted a gutted on in Washington for $1000

I'm with Mama, I think you can do better for that kind of money...

If three windows are out, who knows how much moisture got into it? Could be rot and mould, two bad bandidtos.

"ran out of steam on remodel" yeah, that's one we've sorta heard before...

don't know what your budget is, but I'm of the opinion that no matter how badly you want the experience of remodeling (and it is incredibly educational...your first trailer is the one you learn on) you're better off LEARNING before you buy (here) what to look for and what to look out for, then spending as much as you can afford to get a better (or already renov'd/remod'd) trailer. even with this trailer you will still have no shortage of things to maintain, upgrade, and get excited about...

the only buyer who would pay $3.5 k for that trailer is the famous "sucker born every minute"...imho... good luck!
