Just bought 1982 280 turbo diesel... first airstream.

I just wanted to introduce myself to the community. I was looking for a vintage rv in my price bracket. It was between a Revcon, a gmc motorhome and the airstream. The diesel is what won it for the airstream in the end. We will be doing lots of driving and the mileage is going to pay dividends over the years.
Picked it up with 79k miles from owner who had it since '83 in Oregon. Everything but dash ac works... Every little thing save one bulb in the walkway! Needed lots of cleaning. Now it looks pretty sharp.

Good to have you in the group. With all the 34.5s around here it's good to another 280 and it's even a diesel.

Cheers, Dan
