Gene, could not the ad that says, "light water damage" be construed as clear misrepresentation of facts known to the seller?

In other words, the seller would certainly know that there had been three feet of water in those trailers, and since he or she is in the business of selling them, one could reasonably assume that the seller would then know that the insulation and other items in the walls were carrying noxious and dangerous material, no?

3 feet? No. It was almost double that in some of the campers depending on where on the C/W lot the trailers were parked!

Anyone know, did they "dump" all those coaches, or are there some left?

I would think at minimal the axels might need to be replaced - if the wood has dried out and aluminum isn't corroding.....

I would be a bit scared to purchase such a unit without a tear down to inspect and repair any issues - then again I'm kinda a wimp...

This is great news. We made great efforts to detail the condition of these trailers. If people purchased them with the full knowledge of the damage and potential bio hazards then they will have no one but themselves to blame.

Here is the response I received from the Utah RV place that is selling the "lightly watered" Airstreams:

You know we had 10 total trailers out of this deal. They are all gone but one. I have been so tickled with the sales of the trailers I wish I had another 100. The people buying them have been happier. I am so tickled the stir you are making on the web discussion forum. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE KEEP TALKING ABOUT THEM!!! You have helped me so much the more you talk the better my response. THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ! Oh by the way feel free to call. I would love to thank you in person. You know what they say in Hollywood their is no such thing as bad publicity.



Thanks, Darren 801-392-2400


I guess he's tickled. Too bad he can't spell to save his life.

At the end of the year, when that thread pops up for the "weird post of the year," somebody remind me of this thread, plleeeeezze?!

OK.....time is up

Time is up! It has been long enough for results to be published. Anyone here with one of the flood casualties willing to give an update of life with an Airstream after the flood. So many grim predictions and some not so bad. Or....have the flood Airstreams been carefully sold and resold to the unknowing?

Maybe they can't respond because of the nerve damage they have suffered.

Doesn't add much to the conversation, but FYI....

I stopped by that Camping World last November looking for a couple of parts. They are still in business, but are no longer carrying the Airstream line of products. Lots of other expensive stuff, just not Airstream.
