North Florida inspection needed.

I have tried contacting several members that I found listed in the section of available inspectors with no response. I have found a 1964 Bambi II in Live Oak, Florida that I would like for someone to check out for me. If anyone would be able to do that that please PM me. It is a 380 mile drive for me and I am not going to purchase a trailer sight unseen or without at least a basic inspection by someone else that is knowledgeable about Airstreams.
Thank you, Michael

All set to have the unit looked at tomorrow. A member from Gainsville is taking care of it for me.

Take Some Pictures

It would be great if you and your "Inspector" would post some pictures on this thread.
Be sure to take a comprehensive checklist.
Be prepared to walk away.

Good luck!

Inspection complete with few very minor and easily fixed issues. After spending some time with the owner on the phone I conditionally purchased the 1964 Bambi II. I will be driving over for final inspections and to complete the transaction in a couple of weeks.
I also picked up my new to me 2008 Nissan Xterra. I needed to upsize from my Jeep Patriot and I think the Xterra will make the perfect daily driver and TV for the Bambi II. It will a 380 miles drive back home after picking it up. A bit nervous about the long drive but as long as I take it slow and easy I should be fine.

Definitely feeling pretty positive about it. Still need to give it a final look over and write the check. The condition is very good and price seems reasonable compared to others I have seen for sale and that have sold. I got an e-mail from the current owner this morning, he put a new battery in that has fixed the electrical issues that showed up during the inspection yesterday. There are a couple of minor issues that he is going to take care of today. A travel trailer is like a boat in that small things seem to break even sitting still. Apparently it has been sitting for a while unused.
