It is going to cost you plenty to have it delivered to your door which is throwing money away in my opinion. Instead, invest that $$ in having the needed work done where it sits then towing it home yourself. I am sure there are Airforums members near where the trailer is located who can assist you with finding a trustworthy repair facility. Remember if you are using it exclusively for business all expenses can most likely be deducted.
At the worst case scenario you will need the following to make it tow-able: new tires, new brakes, new wheel bearings and new wiring for the brakes as well as for the tail/brake lights. Your tow vehicle will need a hitch, (don't scrimp on this - get a weight distribution and anti-sway hitch) and a good brake controller.
Don't fret - $2,000.00 for an Airstream is a darned good price especially if the floor, frame and body are intact.
