It's all in the eye of the beholder.

One persons junk is anothers treasure.

On the other hand, scrap aluminum brings better than $1.00 per pound. If it gets much higher, at least around here, we might have to put zippers on the sheet metal, so that you can put the metal in safe keeping when your not using the trailer.

We don't have to worry about rain damaging the trailer, because we don't get any of that wet stuff. Actually, fog brings us more moisture, than a typical rain.

A treasure it may be but Sanford & Son are out of business.

A rebuilders dream or nightmare. Maybe it's time to recycle it. How many beer cans could be made from it. Recycle the beer cans and you could have a new Bambi. Sounds easier to drink your way to that particular Bambi.

Fred looks over at the crumpled Bambi - then clutches his chest, crying, "I'm comin, Elizabeth!"

It's posted a Airstream.net.

It has the windows I'm looking for. I wonder if it's solid enough to tow. I'd part it if I could get it low enough price.

Maybe if the seller would hurry up and get it polished, the bidding could actually start at $3000!!

Mabye if the seller dumped his crack habit, he, she or it could be re-introduced to reality.

I like the $1 per pound idea for the sheetmetal......the rest sold off as scrap or salvage parts to vintage folks.

I'm no expert restoring vintage Airstreams, however, if it is anything like restoring vintage boats, from the looks of it, this one would far surpass $3k to make it whole again....

The streetside doesn't look too bad-maybe this unit has a future.....
in a really bad movie, as a blown-up, crash and burn, driven off a cliff action sequence.

Hahah To funny. It would have been a good one for the Video game comercial.

It's to damaged to bother to put it back together. Floor is broken, Frame probably will need to be replaced, Axles bad and it needs about $1,500 worth of T2024 T3. It could be saved but it would cost way more then you could ever hope to get for it.

It needs to be scrapped. Throw out the totaled stuff inside, Bent aluminum to the recycler, Straight aluminum and salvageable parts Put up for sale so another trailer with minor problems can be saved and restored.

Hart,

I had to look at that post for a minute before it hit me that the clown had a second auction going too.

Inbreeding...what can you do but just laugh!

I actually saw a good use for that trailer today.

As a storage shed!

I was driving through a nasty trailer park (trashy one) and behind a shack, was half of an Airstream. It appeared to be sitting on the ground, no frame, and was open to the air. They had lawnmowers and all kinds of other junk stuffed in it. There was no way for me to tell what year or model, but it was definitely an old Airstream and still had some windows. Kind of cool in a psychotic kind of way.

A good Sawzall, and $75, and that Ebay trailer would fit in my backyard!
