All the plasitic roof bits are shattered, A/C shroud, and the white center roof panel has ball peen hammer sized dents all over it. Also, the curbside front and rear curved body panels have dents as well. Everything else is pristine, since the trailer was between other trailers, the dents are high and mostly out of sight.
Replacing the dented panels is doable in our garage. Windish said they will replace all the roof plastic bits,A/C shroud etc. roof vent stacks.; Question, this trailer had an MSRP of $84000 and Windish was pricing it at $54900, Now they are willing to sell for $49,000. All warranties would apply except leaks from dented seams etc being an act of nature.
Anyone got an opinion, worth it or not, or does there need to be more of price reduction? Any thoughts?
The list price, minus 25% standard discount, minus $25K for hail... gives $38,000.

Windish's insurance company may have totalled that trailer, and they bought the wreckage back. They may only have $20K into that trailer now.

Hail financially destroys Airstreams!

CrawfordGene, No, Windish isn't going out of business. There is about a dozen 2010 airstreams behind and rear of the service end of the building you can't see from 6th Ave.
Then, you know they have the satellite dealership up in Longmont which used to be Del Camino RV. They have more airstreams there.
I talked with Airstream Customer Service about this trailer, and it comes with full factory warranty, if you want to call it that, with the exception of leaky panels/seams etc. Those would be considered an act of god.
Other than that restriction this 27ft front bedroom covered.
I would have to make sure it came with a clear unblemished title.
DMAC's math more suits what I was thinking. Discounted deal, then a healthy discount for hail, to sum it up around $35-38000
We shall see.

Hail repairs

If you want to stop by and see what is involved in the repair of hail damaged Airstreams you are welcome to make an appointment and visit our facility in Wheat Ridge.

We are about 60% of the way through applying a complete new skin to a 1976 International ($56,000 in hail damage to a $105,000 newly rebuilt and customized trailer) and just beginning replacing both end caps, the roof and the street side of an '06 Bambi which sustained $26,000 in hail damage. For the newer models we get complete end cap assemblies from the factory and replace them as entire units. This allows us to keep as many driven rivets in the structure as possible as they are stronger than the repair rivets.

While you are there you can also take a look at the 2010 Airstream/Timeless Heavy Duty 23' Commercial trailer being built out as a kitchen, a 1967 Airstream International being repurposed as a commercial kitchen and our new 1948 Westcraft model also being finished out as a commercial kitchen and our recently completed 1967 Airstream Caravel repurposed as a refrigerated organic produce trailer. We do have some travel trailer projects coming up in the next few months but right now we are buried in foodservice work!

The trailer(s) that you found over at Windish RV from my understanding came from the dealership that was in Colorado Springs (mountain states rv)... Rumor has it Windish received 11 trailers from the CS dealership that lost the ability to sell Airstreams due to $$$. The trailers all are new (never been titled) but all need a lot of TLC and three look to have what I would call major hail damage for a new never been sold unit. There must be more to the 11 Airstreams because the dealership will not let you look inside... (strange way to sell a trailer)...

Hi Brett:

What kind of organic produce?? With the recent change in Colorado law, are you going to be the first to repurpose an Airstream for medical service work . . . as a mobile medical marijuana dispensary? Naming it could be a trip: The Rolling Toke . . . Get-Around Joint . . . Grass on Wheels . . . J-High . . . The Puffery? Can you picture the interior layout? Or is that a little foggy? I know an upcoming Rocky Mountain based Rally where you could "roll it out"! Always thinking of your best business interests . . .

There was a post some time ago about hail damaged trailers at the Colorado Springs dealer and the rumor then was they came from Windish. Someone asked about the price of a hail damaged trailer some time ago and wherever it was, the price was really high for what it was. Windish is where the hailstorm hit last year. When we looked at Airstreams in CS 2 1/2 years ago, all the Airstreams were inside. Another rumor was that Windish was getting out of the Airstream business, not closing down. The reason was supposed to be that JC wasn't financing inventory then. Looks like the CS dealer closed or stopped selling Airstreams and a hail damaged trailer came back to Windish.

Hard to believe Windish won't let people look inside the 11 Airstreams. Maybe they have been converted to dispensaries.

dmac's math looks right to me.

Ah geez, what a bunch of crap.. I can go Windish RIGHT NOW and Manny Beauchamp ( Sales) will give me a key to whatever I want to look at, period.
The 27ft front bedroom I originally added to the "hail" thread what just the case., I was given the keys, and was told to lock up after I looked it over.

Fred -

Two words..."Roach Coach" Gives the term a whole new meaning!

On a similar note we did recently complete a brand new, 1948 Westcraft "trolley top" unit for Classic Cigars out of SoCal which can bee seen here: Southern California Premier Mobile Cigar Lounge - Lounge - Classic Cigars You can't smoke in buildings any more; this ain't a building! This coach is brand new from the rubber up.
