Sounds like the dreaded rear end separation.
Depending on how bad it may be, if a shop that knows how to fix were involved, it could cost as much as $3500.00 or more, for a correct fix.
It would be far better to look at that Airstream from the worst side, instead of it's best side.
If you wished to correct the separation, again depending on how bad it may be, at worst you would have to gut the rear end, remove the lower interior and exterior aluminum panels, remove some of the rear flooring, replace some of the rear frame, and who knows what else you may find. Plus probably an axle to boot.
Better to be cautious about the purchase.
