Paula,

I second your comment "Smile, a bad day airstreaming is better than a good day working!"

WELCOME!

we bought our Airstream as is on Craigslist... so far we've put into it almost what it would've cost back in 1968 (great year
I'd rather put my life into our Airstream than another day into the condo I once owned... even w/all the challenges it reveals w/each screw loosened... so no buyers remorse

Happy future travels!

Sorry to hear it! But take heart because the same thing happened to us 3 weeks ago and it turned out it was meant to be because we found (and bought) a much better one a week later.

Twenty five years ago I was about to buy an awesome one owner 64 Bambi. I went to my bank and went back to the seller with CASH IN HAND and they sold it to someone else for LESS than I was going to pay!!!

Two days later I stumbled across a beautiful 65 Caravel (kick myself daily for selling that one) and paid less than I would have paid for the Bambi.

Anyway, today I'm at Seal Beach in SoCal in my 30' Classic sipping an ice cold martini living an awesome "Airstream" life....so keep looking, you'll find the one and then another and maybe even another! I'm on my 4th! and looking for a project so hang in there, you'll find one.

And WELCOME to the site and AIRSTREAMing! You're gonna love it!

Mike

There are definitely other trailers out there. I'm very happy with our Argosy (I bought it earlier this year) but I still occasionally troll the classifieds and think "Ooh that looks nice" or "that might be a fun project." I can definitely see how people end up with multiple trailers!

Tell your local WBCC group that you are looking. Alot of trailers are sold before even being listed. I bo ught my 59 from a guy in our vintagte trailer group. Good luck. It is hard to see the outcome until it happens but I believe thigns happen for a reason. There is a better one wating for u I see you are in N. Calif. I can keep an eye out ofr u if you want to drive to to NW. Exactly what are u looking for and cost?
