Yes, I'm seeing the forest for the trees now, more clearly as I think about it. This one usn't a good deal for me, as I'm anxious to travel in the next couple of weeks. I thought I could get a banger and live with it on the trip then fix it up when I get home but this is a non-starter.
THANKS to all who nicely showed me the way that I kind of knew was there already. It'll go on Cragslist and Alaskalist and my friend will have it out of his yard. I'll probably not be back here for a while, as I'm still looking but likely not for an AS at this time.

Joe, it is easy to get aluminitus. We've all been there and learn (sometimes) it is better to take a breath and think. Lots of ones available in the lower 48 (and Canada) so you could have one for the trip back.

HAHA-I was described yesterday as having Airstream-itis !! I guess it shows. After really looking hard at the one my friend has this weekend, I see just about every problem that all you nice folks described, from the saggy tail end to the heavy rust in spots on the frame. Much of the fittings and interior are still there, including the whole bathroom/shower etc but there is also quite a bit missing. All in all, it's a seller and he'll be putting it up on the Parks Highway on the edge of his driveway with a FOR SALE sign on it. I will say, I'm really drawn in by the Aluminum construction and shell. I guess I'll find something else to drag down the highway and start looking for the take-home model. Thanks again all.
