I totally agree, we just bought ours yesterday after wonderful pointers and help all week. Welcome to the forum, you are good hands here.
We just bought a '66 Safari 22 Airstream yesterday! We were the first to email the kijiji ad about 5 minutes after it was listed, and we put a wanted ad in just a few days before. They were emailing us with their listing while we were replying to theirs that we had seen ourselves. You have to be fast. A lot of people seem to put listings up at 10-11pm maybe when the kids are in bed? We also were first in line for another the same way, but it looked in poorer condition in the pictures.
Luckily the PO went in order of replies, as we live 2 hours from them. I just saved the kijiji search for 'airstream' in 'all ads' after clicking on 'recent posts' so the most recently listed items were at the top of the first page and pressed ctrl-D to make a book mark and save to your Toolbar not bookmark.
It means if you are online and doing other stuff you can keep opening up that page right on the right search and see was was listed, it's way faster. We did ours for the whole province of Ontario, but you could put your mile range around your city too and see what comes up.
I am so excited. we know we will have a project to do, but it will be fun to do and fun when it's done. I hope you find your baby soon!
