Question Hi from SE Louisiana ! Inspection questions

Last August, we were one of the thousands that flooded in Louisiana. Thankfully, a friend and Airstream owner came to our rescue and allowed us use of his 1989 Excella during our renovation. As he is no longer going to be using it because of health reasons, he has offered us the chance to purchase this RV. We are very interested but we know that it will need some work before we can take it back out on the road. He had it in covered storage for a good while before lending it to us. We are looking for an honest opinion on what it would take to get the RV in top shape again. Are there any individuals or businesses in our area that could help us out with this inspection ?

Thanks for any suggestions !

There are inspectors in your area. There is a link on bottom right of the home screen of forum.. do the search and send folks a private message (PM).

If you don't get an answer, it might be costly for a dealer to make a trip out.

Why don't you give us info about the AS... we might be able to help with your questions...

Anyway, there is no skeeter dope for the Aluminitis bug... it can be fun tho...

Peace and Blessings..

The closest Airstream dealerships THE RV SHOP IN BATON ROUGE or FOLEY IN GULPORT might be able to assist you.

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."
