Today while working on my trailer, a pickup truck pulls up in front of my house. A couple gets out and walks up to me. The first words out of their mouths were, "Do you want to sell it?" Being knee deep in all the work I am doing to it, I quickly replied, "No Way!" They were very nice, and asked if I knew of any other Airstreams around that were for sale. They had already looked at a bunch of them that were all in poor condition. In our conversation about Airstreams, I mentioned that I paid $1500 for mine. The gentleman quickly responds, "Want to double your money?" I laughed, having already put more than an additional $1500 in to it with just parts. Forget about the $5.50 an hour that my labor is worth!
I told them I would keep an eye out for any local Airstreams, as I regularly go and look at ones I see in the paper... even though I am NOT buying another one... yet.
Just thought I would pass that story on. I'm sure it happens quite frequently since everyone these days seems to be infatuated with Airstreams.
