Cool I'm back again...

Hi,

Some of you my remember me and my quest of the totally renovated Globetrotter on E-Bay a few weeks ago. I did not make its reserve as the bidding went to $17,000.

It's going to be relisted soon and I believe the reserve is around $30,000. The owner sent me a link to a similar trailer sent to Italy for a renovation by a famous Italian designer and shipped back to the US where the owners, a dept. store in San Franscisco ( Limn) put it up for sale for $175,000!!! I'm sure many of you think by now Florida flamingos have their heads in too much water ....but I belive this is true.

I put out a query on the inspector's link on the first page of this website to 2 CA Airstreamers in the San Francisco area to see if anyone would go up to Somoma county to inspect the trailer for me. I believe it is near Pt Reyes. No answer to date so I am asking if there is anyone out there who would like to do this for me...of course for a fee. Think how much fun it would be to look at such a trailer!!!! I need to know if the trailer frame can carry the weight as probably the renovation added a lot. Also the condition of the axle for a trip to Florida. There are probably lots of other important considerations I have not memtioned or thought of.

Thanks for reading and maybe in my next life I will become something less crazy than a pink flamingo who likes Airstreams...life would be so much simpler!....Susan in Florida

I was curious about the listing ... got this when I clicked on the link:

This listing () has been removed or is no longer available. Please make sure you entered the right item number.

The inside does look good. What is it in the last picture of concern? The skin wave?

I guess I would be sure you were aware of the rear waste tank setup including drag wheels..
