here are a few things we are looking for

1. 19'-27' max
2. sleeps 4 preferred
3. we are ok with an older model that we can renovate as we go (must be close to camping ready)
4. she would like a couch/bed for seating rather than just a little dining table
5. My wife doesnt care for the floor plans that have 2 beds in the middle on each side of the walkway. but then again she hasnt seen them in person so they might be acceptable when she sees them
6. we are looking to spend less than 10k so and older used AS is what we want

my wifes concern is room for us and our soon to be 2 year old daughter. she doesnt want to get one that will become to cramped for 3 people since we would like to have another child so it would eventually need to sleep 4 people and have enough room for us to be comfortable.

TouringDan my wife family lives on the thornapple south of cascade near caledonia. nice area for sure

so i have convinced my wife that a twin rear bed layout wouldnt be a bad thing. i guess that opens up a few options. does anyone have a link to where i can find out what models had what layouts

Hey Crazycuda, the one on Craigslist looks nice. I'd ask about axles, inverter, tanks, appliances- the stuff that can be kind of a money sink. See if the seller has a definitive answer, or if they're kind of vague and you can gauge what might need work.
Wherever you go, there you are

last year there was an excella for sale just around the corner from my house but it was just the wrong time for us to even look at it. must have been a great unit since it sold in just over 3 weeks. During that time i was forced to drive by when i would come home for physical therapy for my thumb after i severed a tendon in it. tough to see something so nice so close and know you cant justify it at the current time

down the same stretch of road the excella was on i see another airstream that was stored in a old barn. i believe it was out by the road last year for sale and right now its parked near their garage far enough off the road i dont dare stop to find out what it is. if it pops up for sale i will jump at the chance to at least look at it

For Heavens sake, go look at it. You might get a good deal.
