Exclamation Looking for a Trailer-for the UK

Hello,

My name is Martin Maclean, I'm based in Liverpool, U.K and I want to buy a pre-owned Airstream (18-23ft) because I think they are the most exquisitely beautiful beasts on the road. I can buy them here in the UK but they are expensive. I am therefore exploring the feasibility of buying in the States and shipping it over to the UK. Initially I am looking at the East coast as it is easier and probably cheaper to buy and ship from there than California, Washington etc.

I am also looking at whether there is a potential business to be had from importing into the UK so I will buy, sell on and then do it all again! I'm not looking to buy for about another 2-3 months, so don't all rush at once to sell me your mobile palaces!

Any help or advice that anyone may have will be gratefully received.

All the best,
Martin.

Exquisitely beautiful beast....

I think, in a moment of intense passion, my wife once called me an "exquisitely beautiful beast" but I'm not sure because it was so long ago....
The English have a wonderful way with words!
What an absolutely fantastic description of an Airstream!

I have sent many your way and would be happy to help you. Look at http://photos.yahoo.com/richtrich and let me know if any are what you are looking for. I am in North Carolina on the East coast and ship out of Charleston South Carolina.
