To buy or not to buy?

We have truly loved learning about Airstreams! Our first was a 1960s Caravel, then a 1968 Safari and our new and improved 2005 bunkbed model. We did put a down payment on the trailer and drove a long way to verify all the due diligence that we had done prior to our arrival. So with the long checklist we completed the search from top to bottom, made sure all the equipment worked, saw the service work sheet and met the family we bought the trailer from. We also used the experience of other AS owners (via the phone) we know to finish the inspection process. We did purchase and brought the trailer home. We love our trailer. We could not have afforded this trailer from a dealer hence the long drive. So it is possible to buy using other methods. I might also suggest that you connect with a local airstream group. They know so much about the AS, dealers and also many times there are people getting out of Air Streaming and wanting to sale their trailer and even the TV. Good information on how well they have taken care of the unit etc…. We wish you the best with your search!
