1948 Airstream on American Pickers

1948 Trailwind Airstream was part of this evening's American Pickers TV Show on the History HD channel.

The guys found it in Arizona and paid $8,000.00 for it...

Saw it. Amazing untouched condition.

I didn't think they were too far off on pricing it.

I watched the episode as well... I believe if I stumbled upon one I would have to keep it!

Length of ownership and possesing something of value has different meaning for most AS owners. Not the first item he has told the seller he was enamored and personally wanted it, but in reality his business is to flip it. He along with others in the business is why you can't find the deal, they go to places most of us would bypass. This item was put in the hands of a reseller and placed out of viewing by the average person.

I notice this too all the time on this show... but Mike's "gotta have" emotion is intertwined with his "gotta sell" emotion, I think. It's very different than my visceral reaction to stuff like this, as I could never run a business like his - I'd want to keep everything!

Oh, and since no one has mentioned it yet, I will: our very own Dale "PeeWee" Schwamborn acted as consultant on this episode (as he did with the show's Bowlus segment last season) by providing the historical photos and information for their little "silent film" clips that describe the object in question.

It's great to see not only Airstreamers celebrating Dale's knowledge and collection of family treasures, but people outside our community as well.

The pipe frame should be in good condition considering it's location but I would take that in consideration before I would pay a flipper's price for the trailer.

I think as a picker, Mike likes everything. Not easy to keep everything though.

Don't forget it is a TV show and it is theatrix. But it is grest to see an Airstream sighting. We will continue to watch to see the end result of the SALE??

Who is Steve, the expert that came and appraised it? I saw the rerun tonight. Nice find.

Saw it last night on the re-run! I was surprised they didn't give more info on the trailer since they research everything prior to going on air. I too wondered who "Steve" was.

Since the episode is now over 6 months old, I wonder if he still has it...
