I would also be keen to know the asking price vs. purchase price but no problem if you'd rather not say.
Also, I love your Pinterest board -- a great idea for this undertaking! At the moment my vision is sort of a David Lynch meets Pendleton Woolen Mills... but I can't say for sure until I find my trailer.
I look forward to watching your progress!
Hi Carrie Sue!
I'm very interested in seeing what this take on David Lynch / Pendleton shapes up to be.
I didn't buy from a dealer, I purchased from a family who had it for a few years and had done quite a bit of restoration work on the mechanics of it, but not the cosmetics. The kids wanted the parents to be in something more modern so they'd feel better about them being out on the road and then sold the Airstream. Super nice folks.
Seems like a lot of the trailers I see are in your region, so you shouldn't have any problems finding multiple candidates.
