Saw a FOR SALE AS in Deming NM!!

Hello all -

Been in Silver City in SilverToy (irony or sincronicity??) since 12/27.... Too much snow/ice to get home to ABQ all week.... off to T of C tomorrow.... We'll see

Saw a "For Sale" AS just outside Deming. Looks to be a 20' -ish, 80's unit - no condition other than OK looking at 55mph+, asking price on the windows was $2500. Didn't notice the window shape or anything other than the streetside aspect. Will take photos and post as soon as I get home and have connectivity with all the right cords... Not ready on this trip... Will have everthing on the next trip.

WILL stop and get the details on the unit tomorrow. Hoping for WiFi at the next stop!!!! Will get a phone number as well. Anyone interested, check back tomorrow.

Axel

Here we were, the last milestone on the trip home, Liberty Hill TX. I was tired, and savaged by cedar fever, my son at the wheel, but not too tired to register the mild aluminum glow from the local for sale lot as we passed by. Was that an old Airstream, parked at the very lot where I purchased my 73 Sovereign only a few weeks ago? It could not be, not a real classic taunting me. I searched for it the next morning but darkness denied me. So why would this small aluminum wonder tug at me all day long? I mean, I had my project, all 31 feet of it, and while the things to do list grew daily, tires, air conditioning and heat, it was basically solid. Sure the plumbing project had been started, but still wanted lines from the pump to the system, and yes a hint of sag in her tail and some past reframing did nag at me. But what if…what if the price and condition of that old Airstream was too good to pass up? Hum, “hi honey, I just bought another Airstream!” She would look out among the three boats and the Sovereign International Land Yacht and…”See honey, there is room over there…and I can sell the Sov once I finish it, and of course a couple of the boats”…. No, that probably would not fly… But surely, I could eliminate the need for a new tow vehicle, that would save me a bundle! Gasp! This discussion bounced around my skull all day. What if the price was right and the condition good? What if….

Four O Clock…nine hours, short day and I turned my ride out of Austin and back towards home. It would not hurt to stop...I mean the forum needs more pictures! My mind drifted to a vision of warm wood paneling and vintage fixtures. There she is, disappointment, out of budget range…and in need of so much….but still…with a bit of work???? Maybe, just maybe someone will buy this and end my misery!

PS: Do I get extra credit for the polished panel?

Okay, here goes:
there's one parked in a gravel pit just east of the lumber mill in Lewiston ID, one off the west end of the runway at Ellensburg WA, another one sitting off the north end of the runway at Anaconda MT, a real gem just over the hill on the Washington side above Lower Granite Dam, several sitting hiding in back lots in Airway Heights/Spokane, I could go on and on, I gotta start packing a`camera!

OK - It's a LandYacht...and

OK all -

Finally made it home - without SilverToy. Spent about 8 hours shoveling snow and chipping 2 inch thick ice out of the drive. The drive is ready for her but I have a family funeral to go to - in Europe. Hope the travel weather is OK.

Back to the trailer outside Deming NM. She is a Land Yacht. Did get about 10 photos including some interior shots, but simply do ot have to time to upload. The info off the nameplate is as follows.

LandYacht TradeWind LY 12 502 - S1273 A-1 S1275 PA 2283

She sits about 1 mile north of Deming NM on Rt. 180 - #2875 Rt 180. Price in the window is $2500. There was a 'ghost' of the original dealer tag??? which was out of Portland OR - Spencer.

Interior was rough. Rear bath, center looked to be living area, mid front kitchen with stove on the street side, front gaucho, all the glass is present, screen was there, door has 2 'center' hinges, 2 part step - lower hanging on one side, AC shroud missing as is the roadside rear cover (water?), has Vista views, there is more but I gotta run....

The sellers Phone # was 505-590- and then 3107 !!!!! OR POSSIBLY !!!! 3907. There was a 3 legged dog that wanted me OUT, OUT, OUT!!!!!!! and so the memory was overwritten with the fear....

Maybe this is the ONE that somebody wants, needs of can't live without!? Hope so....!!!!

Ciao

Axel

This weekend I saw the mother load--37 Airstreams in one place! It was the First Annual Florida Can Opener in Topsail Hill State Park. I was one of the 37. It was a great weekend and we all had a great time.

Interesting thing though, on the way home I saw two Airstreams within five miles of the campground. The first was a CCD and I flashed my lights but no response. The second was a nice mid 20' length Excella; he/she flashed his/her lights just as I was reaching for my light switch. If I am not mistaken, these two turned up at Topsail that afternoon unknowing about the rally that had been their all weekend.

Also, one of the Airstreams I saw at the rally was Rich Lhur's (Publisher of Airstream Life) Tour of America 30' Safari.

Anyone need a project?

Here's one that just appeared parked alongside US-1 in Melbourne, FL. The trailer looks as if it was used as a residence at one time as it has house numbers on the curbside. It's missing the jack and one window. Lots of dents including some holes in the front. Couldn't see inside as the windows are frosted over. The phone number on the for sale sign is (321) 544-7470.

There was actually a whole yard full of imprisoned Airstreams, and a huge garage with more inside. Here's another shot - mine is the semi-shiny one in the center, with the brand new back window.

They were so sad, I wanted to set them all free....
