Wink Okie Guy has arrived

Hi There Everyone,
I am just a 30's something guy in Oklahoma looking at purchasing a 1968 overlander or mid 70's Airstream. I have loved these things since I was a kid. I looked at one yesterday but it needs a LOT of work and they want $5000 for the thing. I think that is too high.

Welcome to the forums, Phil. If you are looking for a trailer, you can check the classifieds section here on the forums, there are several in your general part of the world from a virtual basket case for around $1500, to some ready-to-roll coaches for $9000. I saw a Sovereign in Seattle for what I would consider a good price. If I was living closer, and needed another coach, I would arm wrestle you for it...

Welcome Phil, you came to the right place! We're all alumaholics here. Aluminitus takes some folks longer to contract than others... hence your delay in actually begining the search for your very own Airstream.
Good luck with your search. Half the fun and education is in the hunt.

you will find many overpriced units until you find the right one at the right price for you. I recently looked at a $4000+ 30 footer that needed everything, literally. Would have made a good deal at 800.
