I need some advice on the value of a 74 Airstream Tradewind Land Yacht 25ft double bed rear bath.
My girlfriend and I went to view this trailer today. The owner wants $3500.00 for it!
Specifics: First off the outside needs polishing and clear coat plus paint is peeling and has a dent in the front drivers side corner and a fairly substantial watermelon size dent on the roof back drivers corner over shower that shows protrudes into shower ceiling...
Trailer has not been moved in 6+ years so needs new tires, unable to open awnings for viewing. everything was difficult to unsfew or open due to non use and some rust. several window screens need replacement. Unable to test all appliances due to being stored and no electricity availabe. No access to water as well. Minor layer of rust on some undercarriage and on wheel well. Bottom of bumber storage area needs replacing.
The good part... It feels solid and is pretty clean for sitting 6 years. no leaks in trailer, no mildew or musty smells. I jumped on back bumper and it seems solid, no rear end seperation, I jumped around int differnt places and it felt solid. The axle was in good shape. all cabinets and closets and doors opened and shut well. Flooring was strong. All vents and windoows worked and beds all worked.
My fear is that sitting for so long without use that when we test water pressure and electrical and gas lines that the seals will have dried out and leaks will be plentifull.
Just really confused???
