Thanks
Ah yes the windows need to be sealed with vulkem or now what is called trempro 635. You need to clean out old sealent and re seal the window to the frame and the frame to the shell. There is also a seam at the top and bottom of the frame that needs to be cleaned of old Sealant and resealed. It's quite a bit of work but manageable. I did 3-5 windows at a time to break it up.
If you purchase an Aistream that needs work get ready to spend big bucks paying someone else to do it or read up on it and try it yourself. Most things can be done by someone with general skills and a desire to fix their trailer. You can always spend more money on a Trailer that already has had work done on it.

end of the story...

Just spoke to an expert who explained in greater details how mold "works". I think that made it tip the balance on the don't buy side.

Thanks everyone for your comments.

Hope the next Airstream will be right one!

What did this expert say?

Generally speaking, be skeptical of "experts". Do the research, become an expert yourself, and make an educated decision.
