Hello Airstreamers i have a question for you all. I currently bought a 1985 31' Airstream Excella from a lady in Or and she didn't tell me the whole story "but i knew she was hideing something". To make a long story short i found were she had her son try and repair some floor rot in the rear of the coach and did a sloppy job. so i fixed it and went on i have had to replace most of the apliances and found out it had more rot in the front of the coach as well
I just came from a 72 ambassador to a 86 Excella and i guess from 80 to 90 thor tryed to pull a fast one and use chip board. Now for my question i am a full time rver witch means were i park my trailer is home i am not married and have a 95lb lab named Helga and don't need alot of room but welcome any extra. I found a Norman Rockwell trailer that was well taken care of and was owend by a past wbcci president for 12'500.00 "i know i would be stealing it" but i don't know nothing about 34' trailers vs 31' witch is were i despritly neet your help
i know i will have no sweat pulling it with my dually truck and i am not concearned about tire scrub what i am concearned about is do you 34' Airstreamers out there have truble getting into state parks? rv camp grounds? anywere? Also it is a wide body how does it look behind a dually truck can you see ok or do you need spiecal mirrors? Also when you look from the front of the truck is the trailer as wide as the dualls on the outside? Also i heard a rumer that 34' airstreams couldn't be pulled fast because they tend to bend in the middle is that true? What do you fellow Airstreamers think about a 31' to 34' swap for a single guy with a dog? I know i will have to sell my 85 witch is now almost completely gone threw with all new stuff in order to buy the NR 34r'er witch is like putting new tires on your car and tradeing it off. Any help would be awesome.
Thanks Wally and Helga
