Best of all, after listening to a few hours of the podcast, you will have your expectations better calibrated.

Also, have a look at There is a section that talks about price vs. condition that might be a useful guideline to you as you look around.

good luck!
Ah yes. Thanks for the additional info. I actually scanned that price vs condition guideline, but it's 3+ years old. Has it been updated or has the market changed any? Seems from what I've seen as far as pricing for similar trailers that I'm looking at, he was a little higher, but the condition was better than others I've seen listed. However, those were list prices, not sold prices. I'll have to locate the dvd about which you speak.

I'm in the looking stage also. I found This Thread to be informative as to what is involved in restoring a vintage Airstream.

Sounds like you're cooking up a great adventure!
