I do not have an Airstream yet but we are looking for one. We do have a Vintage trailer 1962 Mobile Scout (Canned Ham) and a SOB 2006 trailer that I want to replace with an Airstream. I thought I had found one last week in Phoenix. It must be a scam. I now see the same Ad in Phoenix, Calgary, Alberta & Houston and the women I contacted said the trailer is in Michigan ready to be shipped from an eBay wherehouse! Wanted me to give my info to her because she "has a contract with eBay" and sale would be insured etc. According to eBay it doesn't work that way! I will keep looking for something local that I can see before I buy and can be sure that the trailer actually exits!

You may want to take a look at Oasis RV on Old Benson Hwy in Tucson, if you haven't already. They were an Airstream dealer some years ago but now do maintenance and repairs on them, good work. They keep an inventory of a few used Airstreams on hand, some really old and in need of much restoration (which they can do), and a few late models. Ask them and they may be able to find what you're looking for.

Hey there, Welcome. Hubbie and I recently purchased our first Airstream and love it. I have visited Tuscon several times in the past few years and cannot wait to bring our Silver Zep out there.

Welcome! Now that you're here, don't forget to check the Classified ads here on the AirForums. Much better than eBay.

I could not find this post last night when we got home with our 1965 twin bed TradeWind. It has the guy on the bicycle pulling the trailer on the plaque by the door. Do they all have that? The lady we bought it from said only 500 were made in CA with that on it? It doesn't matter to me I'm just curious. I am delighted to have found the model we wanted so quickly and close to home. She said I responded within 5 minutes of her posting the Ad . I do not have a clue how to post pictures here on the forum.
