Just joined this morning!

My husband and I are on the look-out for a vintage Airstream so I researched and found this site. We may have found one about 170 miles away from us - sounds almost too good to be true - but they do have someone looking at it tonight. We'll need to call before we head out to western Iowa. The gentleman has a 1986 29 ft (classic) with double bed in the back. He's in his 90's and his wife has Parkinson's, thus the reason for selling. He's asking $8500.00.

We are truly newbies when it comes to Airstream. We've gone from a pop-up to a Starcraft 25' hybrid travel trailer in a matter of 2 years. Something about Airstream is luring us though

Take an Inspector With You

One of the many services you will find on this forum is a list of Airstream Owners who will either inspect the Airstream on your behalf when it's too far away or with you when it's within driving distance.

The inspector can be a dispassionate third party who can take you through a comprehensive checklist of things to inspect. HE or she can also offer advice on fair market values.
