I was just looking at that... It is really nice, and they think it is really, really nice with that price tag...

No names mentioned.... this trailer has been described as looking much better in photos than in real life by two people that have recently been in it, maybe folks that know a little about Airstreams. I think that it is going to be a very hard sell.

Was the trailer constructed for travel or as a stage prop? Do thing work or are they just good looking?

Nice trailer - no, great camera work!

Would like to know how they took such great photos of the side bath in such a confined space (midgets with anti-grav boots??)

Thats easy enough, a wide angle lens.


Here is an idea, for the same money buy another reasonably priced vintage and restore it, then use the other 180K for travel.......

Since they have advertised it on e-bay and Craig's List and now here for $170K and up, all I can say is that they are sure proud of their work. I don't doubt the quality of appliances and materials. Can't say about the quality of install, but to put that kind of money in a vintage trailer and expect to get it back is not a safe investment IMHO.

If the trailer was used on a TV series they all ready got paid for it once.

if they hold on to it for 20 or 30 years till they is a memorabilia following for the TV show they might get their price.

Amazing!

If they spent all that $ ...that means that we've saved $200,000 on our own restoration. Including the cost of the trailer!

Now I really feel motivated to resume my polishing project.

That view main view looking down the interior towards the back makes me car sick with wood grains and carpet going all different directions.

What's that thing under the table that the mouse/keyboard is on. Is that the computer CPU? It seems big and out of place compared to the rest of the nice work they've done.
