    You are most welcome. I am glad I could help. I always learn by doing myself! The WWW helps a lot to.

    Pete,

    We decided that getting a 25' around $18-$25k (in CDN funds) was the way to go. This means 1990s here. Below $15k buys older with more issues. Over this gets you newer, but not necessarily any better, plus I'm not willing to shell out more money initially. I figure a good used one could be sold at no loss if we didn't like Airstream life, or wanted smaller/bigger. Regardless of what price and year, we would have to upgrade the interior anyway to a tune of a couple thousand.

    We bought privately, but were not knowledgeable enough to really sniff out water leakage. To repair water leaks and replace rotted subfloor is a diversion that is very time intensive, but under $500 in parts. We should get to the same end result, but at greater effort, which is semi-custom at 1/4 to 1/3 of new!

    The key is getting one that has been well maintained by a fanatical owner at a price you are comfortably with. Patience is the greatest key. Don't rush into one!
