Question Do i take a chance!

Hi, Im new to this forum and dare i say it.... i plan to ship one of your works of art to the UK, i have wanted to own a classic Airstream for a number of years now, but have had to settle for run of the mill gulfstreams or similar. Now luckily i am in a position to purchase one. I have found a 325 tag model 1987 that seems to be in pretty good shape, have only seen photos (plenty of them) and the owner seems genuine. I fully understand that i will probably be spending time and money on her, what are your views, am i totally insane to buy unseen or is it worth the risk, would appreciate all views/ opinions, Thanks.

Welcome dr1958,

You're not the first to think of this and there are members here that have purchased trailers or motorhomes and shipped overseas. As for buying sight unseen I would recommend you check our list of volunteer inspectors to see if someone in that area will take a look at the unit on your behalf. Visit the portal page and look for the Airstream Inspector's box located on the righthand side of the page (about half way down).

Here's an interesting story about a shipping a MoHo to the UK that has taken on a life of it's own.

Best of luck,
