Buyer inspection and appraisal
I'm trying to buy a trailer in Shreve, OH. I need someone who knows what they are looking at to check it out the systems, check for any water leaks or damage, and check the suspension. There's been a lot of miles on this trailer.
Please call Jack at 404-520-4865.

If you go to the Portal page, on the lower right-hand side, you will find a search function for Volunteer Airstream Inspectors.
Find one to take with you.
Take a comprehensive, inspection checklist.
Find out what works and what doesn't.
Figure out how much it's going to cost to make it roadworthy enough to get it home,
(New tires, wheel bearings, brakes and new battery?)
Know what you're getting yourself into...
Decide how much you are willing to spend above beyond purchase price.
In addition to tires, bearings, brakes, battery, It will probably need:
-New refer ($1000.00)
- New AC ($1000.00)
- New converter ($400.00)
- New H2O heater ($700.00
And at some point, new axles ($1600.00)
All prices are for parts. RV labor is $95.00 per hour.
Good luck
