It's not really a rationalization...Al is one of the most commonly re-cycled metals.

Again, good luck, we applaud your enthusiasm

Looking at trailer listed in the classifieds here. Has hail damage.

The wife and I have found a trailer here in the classifieds section.

2005 AIRSTREAM SAFARI LS 25 FEET--1 OWNER - Airstream Trailer Classifieds - Airstream Trailers For Sale

It is a 2005 Safari. But it has a lot of hail damage.
We are worried that the roof has leaks. And that it will take a lot of time and effort to seal it back up.

We dont really mind the dents, just means we will not be the first ones to dent the camper. But dont want the leaks to become a huge problem.
And since we dont know much about these campers we wanted to ask you guys what you thought.

It is an insurance salvage, so we would get a salvage title.

We would be willing to pay someone near the Houston, TX area where it is located to go and check it out for us.
We live about 5 hours away.

Would appreciate any suggestions you guys may have.
Thanks a bunch.
Rich and Tracy.

I'd be worried about some of those large dents and a salvage title has some major disadvantages as well. Go to the portal (home page) of Air Forums and scroll down toward the bottom and check out the inspectors list and PM some of the Houston members for help inspecting the trailer. Good luck but be careful.
