Newbie here! Hubby and I are going to look at a 31' 1988 Excella 1000 Rear Twin Bed model this weekend. I have read the messages in this forum and already know to look under the beds to check for water damage and to inspect the axle. Is there anything else particular we should look for?
Two weeks ago, knowing very little about Airstreams, we bought a 1978 Sovereign
that had corner&middle segments/roof damage and then discovered rib damage when we took off the interior panels and end cap. Other than the $1500 dollars it would take to fix the segments, we have yet to do a full inspection of the belly pan and have no idea if any of the systems work. We may have bit off a little more than we can handle due to storage constraints.
So we're off to look at this Excella and would appreciate any advice. From the pictures, it looks clean except for one body panel repair and the interior looks in good condition as well. The current owner isn't the original one and says there are no leaks as far as he knows.
