I agree with the suggestions of forgetting 1000#s of batteries and use a generator. Convert them to propane for a cleaner fuel and as mentioned above, I bet your over all real impact for any environmental concerns would be less.

The trailer in the front is a standard Airstream "squarestream" trailer. That called that line of Airstream trailers "Land Yachts" when that were produced from 1989 to 1991. The standard "squarestream" Argosy trailers were made from 1986 to 1989 if my memory is correct.

The 5th wheels in both lines may have only been made in 1989, or perhaps slightly longer as I noted in my last post. I do not have the information to confirm either way.
What year did they make the last Airstream 5th wheel? I found one but I need to determine yr and value to make the guy an offer.

You should be able to see the date of manufacture on the plate attached to the lower front left side of the unit. Mine is close to the last if not the last Argosy they made before switching to silver paint and calling it an Airstream. Mine was manufactured in fall of '88 but is titled and sold as an "1989" it is # 136. I believe they made the airstream by customer order only into early 1991. If the unit has been kept well, value will be higher, but most of these units need a lot of restoration due to water damage from notorious leaky roof. Good luck

If It is in good shape do you think it is worth between $3,000 to $5000? I know
Airstream is top of the line but I was wondering if I could still get parts.

It could easily be worth far more than that if it's in good shape.

I suspect by your spelling of your handle you must be a prospector. Am I right?
Forgive me if I'm wrong.

The AS 5th wheel I found is a 35' with 2 slideouts made in '95. It has water damage around the vent in bathroom and floor under one of the slideouts needs to be replaced. Have you or anyone else here got any info on what is involved in replacing the floor under the slideout? Thanks for your help

That's the same one from the previous entry 3 years ago but polished up nicely! Great looking unit!
