Welcome to the forums and Airstream community! Keep your eyes on the forum classifieds, good stuff comes up there. Check your local (or almost local), Craigs List - sometime have what looks to be good A/S deals close by vs. across the country as in many RV ads. Your local A/S dealer may also have consignments, too (or used trade-ins).
