Buying an Airstream/Questions

I'm getting ready to call about an Airstream this weekend and have a couple of questions.

Are there any problem areas I should look for when calling about or going to look at a used Airstream?

What are some questions I should I ask the seller about the unit??

Garland, Texas

Do a search on this forum....lot's of good advice on what to look for. Some of it depends on the year.

Rear end separation, soft spots on floor (floor rot), windows, etc. would be some key search words. What year are you looking at?

Greetings KingRanchF150!

While you may not be looking at a Vintage unit, many of the concerns about the condition of systems is the same with newer coaches as it is with Vintage. You might try reviewing some of the information in the link below regarding establishing a value for a unit being inspected:

Vintage Airstream Price Vs. Condition

The part dealing with the cost of replacements parts for such things as appliances/accessories that may need replacement may be of particular interest.

Good luck with your inspection!
