I'm a newbie airstream enthusiast, these forums have been a great help.
My husband and I are looking at a 1981 Excella II - they are asking $4,800 - and since they are a family friend, they might even consider a payment plan which would be a great help to us.
It hasn't been used for about a year, one of the tires is flat. The interior looks to be in decent condition.
I've read the Price vs. Condition
guide and it looks like it might fall somewhere on the lower end of the average condition section, but it's hard for us to tell.
Our biggest concern is that there is a leak due to a cracked air conditioner - and some parts of the floor make a sort of crunching noise. We couldn't see the condition of the floor because it's carpeted, but the carpet is original and doesn't show signs of water damage.
Also, we weren't able to check the appliances because there's no electricity or propane.
We're wondering if anyone could lend a hand in inspecting the trailer - or any thoughts on whether this sounds like a good deal.
