Newbie-long distance purchase

A few years back before I retired I enjoyed using this forum to learn about some of the possibilities for a retiree RV lifestyle. Now that I have actually retired I'm looking seriously at for-sale ads for Airstream trailers. One that especially caught my attention centers on a trailer located in Wichita, Kansas, which is about 800 miles away from where I am in Cincinnati, Ohio. One of my foggy recollections (there are reasons when people realize they're ready for retirement) was that there existed good-hearted forum members in various locations who would volunteer to do a preliminary check-out on a prospective long distance purchase. Might there be any members around Wichita who would be so kind as to do a quick look-see on a local trailer currently offered for sale?

Hi there! And welcome! You can go here

And check the "trailer inspector" box and do a search where the trailer is. You can them message the folks directly in case they miss your post.

Good luck!

Thank you very much--it looks like this should "cut to the chase"!

I have purchased two from long distance (Albuquerque and East Texas) and sold one to a new friend in Ohio. I live in Eastern VA. So it is possible. It helps to deal with Forum members as that is an introduction in itself.

Somebody, please, point me to the road.

Could someone who has used the Inspectors give a post about how that worked out for them? I'm interested in an AS in VA (south of Roanoke). I've got the list of VA Inspectors.
