looking to buy a 1974 Tradewind
I am looking at a 1974 Tradewinds for sale. it has been sitting unused for several years, most mechanicals look rusted out and non functional, some of the windows have water in them. the outside is filthy (sitting under trees), and the inside seem to have mildew in places - do I need to remove the paneling and replace the insulation? What should I look for as red flags? I wonder if gutting it and starting from scratch makes sense. some of the cabinets etc seem OK - what do I do with them? one exterior panel is dented and punctured- how hard is it to replace? I am a skilled woodworker but have no experience with Airstreams.
Is $1500 a fair price? I am sure it would be a learning experience! I do not know if I should be excited or scared.. Any advice or feedback welcome!
