and...

... we're still moving forward!




mickeymoose: good call on the "knocking on doors" method... although I'm not buying it, I did just post an ad for an older couple that I met at a campsite... they've got an extra trailer, they wanted to sell it, I told them about airforums.com, I posted the ad... sure it's more than I could spend right now (and I don't need it) BUT if I were looking I may have just found MY trailer... all because I started a conversation about Airstreams with a stranger...

Good Luck!

In an effort to bring back the optimism and light-heartedness we all value on this website, I respectfully and sincerely suggest Richie Rich and Undrwaterair simply refrain from responding to each others posts in the future.

When oil and water are not mixing there's no point in further stirring...

Looked for about 6mo but did not start off looking for AS. But after a short while that is what we settled on since they were night and day better.

We got ours off a dealer lot. The dealer is enormous and mostly sells Class A, monster 5th wheels, and toy haulers as well as really cheap smaller SOBs. It was there on a trade-in and was not selling until we came along. So maybe a place to look is the bigger dealer lots where you have retirees trading up to go full time. I still feel that we got a great deal years afterwards with more experience.

We struggled before that. I saw some on ebay but have been burned by ebay on other things, some folks are just not honest. Plus they tended to be all over the country which was not helpful for me. But what I did do was print off all the models and sold for prices on ebay over a period of several months. I took that down to the dealer to show him what I thought the going price was for an equivalent AS. I did not get any arguments and that knocked a ton off the price right off the bat.

Good luck, sometimes things just pop up.
