Interior for molds, every where.

Hi Rooster,
it may be helpful to be a bit more specific about what kind of advice you are looking for. Size, use, restoration, etc? Most folks on here will always have positive things to say about nearly all models of airstreams so more info about you and your plans for it are helpful. The main thing to consider (IMO) is the refurb, restoration that will need to be done to it to get it back up to 100%. Pictures will help a lot as well (if you have them).

He's talking about torsion axles. They would most likely need to be replaced on the trailer you are considering since the rubber gets old.
