I'm thinking that trailer is WAY too long to have been around the world with Wally.

Also my thought, something is just not right about the claims made. It is sort of like the the dozens of Airstreams that the sellers always claim to have belonged to that actress that was on Bay Watch. Wally would not be pleased.

There was a 30 footer and several 26 footers, including one single axle 26 footer, on the African caravan with Wally - just not this trailer. There were several 26, 28, & 30 footers that went Around the World after Wally died, but none were as old as this trailer.

It's now been flagged for removal. My question was, why would they have said experimental?

No. I did find the ad a bit humorous, I'd have to admit.

Humorous until the Feds come after the new owner for claiming to have 1099 employees. You can't have employees, and at the same time claim they are independent contract workers!


Might be another reason he's getting out.

It sold according to the seller. Guess he doesn't know how post a sold response on craigslist.

1972 - Looks like Ambassador

1972 29 foot Airstream
1972 29 foot Airstream - $8500 (Great Falls) Can't tell much about it but from the license plates it was registered in Helena, Montana (the "5") and has some dings on the endcap. More pictures in the advert - just happened across the listing.
