I should point out it would be fun to put it back to original, a lot of work, but fun. I can't quite express my thoughts politely on it's current configuration.

I think he will find everyone is an idiot, who wouldn't low ball that poor trailer - too bad what has been done to it. Some people... obviously they AREN'T thinking... I agree, I can't really express my thoughts on it's current condition either...

I actually tried to get more pictures, mostly out of morbid curiousity and whoever I connected with was rude. Gather it will be a shed a bit longer. Wish I could get it cheap and work on it. Could be fun. Not sure why everyone on CL thinks that airstreams are worth so much now, and why people think they are worth more gutted with the interior thrown away. Of course we all know that just adds thousands to the mix trying to get tubs, black tanks, hardware etc.

Between American Pickers and Storage Wars, everyone thinks there's just bags of cash in any old pile of junk. That's not to say that only the pile-of-junk trailers are overpriced, but ones like the awful 5th-wheel frankenstein in question are just silly. From the look of it, it might have to be free to be worth the expense and hard work of putting back into proper shape.

What "my stuff" is worth vs. "your stuff" is one of the many things George Carlin was right about.

A little more work than just a clean up and some wax....it's ready roll:
Flatbed trailer

Seems anything that says "Airstream" demands a premium price!

This popped up on my auto search this morning. Looks like there's at least one shorty, and I know people love the small trailers. Of course there's minimal information... "listing for a friend with 4 trailers in a field."

Good Lord I think they're serious! "only" $46500?

I saw this listing and initially thought they'd just put in an extra 0 on the price... but looking at the pictures I think they're actually serious. It isn't a scam, inasmuch as they are showing pictures of a unique interior rather than shots that look like they're stolen from someone else's ad. I do hope they don't find a sucker, though. It's clearly not a TTT build, especially with those squished-down axles. A big 15 gallons of fresh water storage, with an electric water heater. Impressive! Stainless "steal" indeed!

"stainless steal counters" kinds sums it all up, for me.
