Having a vintage Airstream is fun, but it is expensive as almost all old trailers need some amount of repair. These boards are full of threads about used trailers that looked real good and were purchased cheap that have turned into major repair projects. You would be taking a huge chance buying a trailer sight unseen. Unless you find a used vintage trailer that has already been repaired/restored, you can expect to spend a few thousand dollars on the running gear and other common exterior repairs like a professional polish job. Then the interior could also be expensive depending on its condition and what you want. Unless you are a do it yourselfer, it can add up quickly. Eventually you should be able to find something in AZ or southern California/inland empire that you can see before buying.
