I found my Excella on Craigslist after a few months of looking. I got a beautiful AS for very little money! Love it! Good luck!!!

I bought my 2004 Classic 28 off of the Airforums in January 2016. I found that you had to respond quickly as the trailers I wanted seemed to go very fast.

It's an adventure

Buying an Airstream is and should be an adventure. My wife and I devoted several months in our search. I can definately say this....Our Airstream is well worth the time it took to find it. As far as sellers not replying...Possibly those were just not meant to be.

I bought two Airstreams from the AS Classifieds. I contacted both sellers by phone, at least a couple of times. Hang in there and keep watching. This probably isn't something you want to rush into anyway.

If and when the time comes for us to replace our 69 we'll start to work with the local dealership. If a sales person knows you have money and are a serious buyer they will work with you and many will work to keep you informed believing they will get a quick sale on both ends - the buyer of a newer AS that has a trade in and the buyer on the other end ready to move fast. To make it work you have to be sincere because once you get classified as a "tire kicker" then you are back to square 1. For internet ads the poster above is right - make the phone call immediately. Many people travel and do not check email constantly but most carry cell phones now. Good luck and that new AS is up ahead just around the corner!

I was a Purchasing Professional for 40 years. Here is the inside dope on how to get what you really want: USE THE TELEPHONE. Do not rely on email or text. If they post an ph# call them; and do not delay. And keep calling them until you get a live voice at the other end.

Just a reminder, folks...this thread is about how to buy, and sellers not responding and/or updating their ads.

If you have a rig to sell, please do an ad in Classifieds, and do not advertise nor solicit buyers here.

Perhaps send a pm if you feel you have what someone is looking for...

http://www.airforums.com/forums/misc...ork&page=rules

Thanks for your cooperation.

I think we also need a thread about now to proofread before posting.

In addition the link returns a "page not found". (at least for me)

Oops!

I'll fix both.

It is a link to the Community Rules.

Keep looking, check once or twice a day. We happened across our 08 30' Classic in Springfield, MO at Reliable RV, shortly after they became an Airstream dealer, and, the prior owner had just traded in the rig for a non Airstream Class A motorhome. It was Labor Day weekend, on Saturday afternoon, when the online ad appeared. We called, they were open on Monday, we drove there, looked, sat, opened every cabinet, and said to ourselves, This is it! We bought then and there, as there were other folks tramping through our trailer.....
