I cannot emphaize what the rest of these A/S folks are telling you. On my 1971 model I used tube type tires and got several years out of them but I neve let the unit sit very long. Dryrot does not evidence itself just by cracks and weatherchecking. Be safe and protect your family. As a resident of the area that Phoenix could only find one tire to fit his unit I fully understand fot being able to find tires to fit. I replaced mine earlier this year with an ST type but the dealer (in Cortez) had to order them for me. I'm sure I got a much better deal than Phoenix did because I live here and not a "tourist" like he was. My tires were going onto ther 6th year and I have always used 5 as a guide for both of my A/S

Good Luck

Thanks for the help

Thanks to all who replied... unfortunately the gentleman offering this Airstream for sale felt insulted by an attempt to negotiate his requested price despite a scabrous exterior, nonfunctioning refrigerator, his refusal to allow testing of the water system, and the aforementioned tires. I was called a 4-letter epithet for an individual of Judaic heritage and told to go to hell. This trailer will not be happening for me, but another will, and the information so kindly afforded will not go to waste.

Wow Bruce! I guess that guy does not want to sell the trailer. With that attitude, he needs to get it ready to use as his coffin. You're fortunate you didn't buy that trailer.

What a jerk that guy was. If anyone is cheap, it's him. Someday we may see someone posting that they bought this trailer from this obnoxious guy and the tires blew out taking it home, the water system doesn't work, where do I get a new fridge?

Sounds to me like you lucked out - by passing - on that deal. Keep looking, you find your dream home.

Bruce with resistance like that from the seller there was problems. And he was upset you were going to find them. Walking away was the best thing until that seller realizes he doesn't have the best trailer for sale.
