So like many of you, I cruise Craigslist often looking for items to daydream about. Sometimes I look for pinball machines, antiques, models, & trucks and sports cars.
A couple of days ago, the topic of choice was Airstreams!
This ad was waiting for me:
Sounded like probably a scam. Ad only used the craigslist email. But, the new mapping feature of craigslist shows right where the address of the poster. Well it didn't take much thought for me to find the aerial image of the ad location. Sure enough, an Airstream was clearly in the backyard!
So an email was sent. Next day, I sent another one. No reply. Guess I was late. The ad was two days old.
Later that afternoon, I got a phone call from the seller! An offer over the phone was made, after a quick inspect at night the trailer was mine.
So here's a quick image of the recovery. Nice cold rainy night! Of course the jack didn't have power, and the trailer was stuck in mud. Did I mention I opted for the 2 wheel drive Suburban?!
So now the trailer rests in Courtesy Parking awaiting evaluation and a couple of handfuls of projects.
So whats the "TLC" about in the ad? The previous owner had a leak and tore out the front gaucho, tables, and carpet. Also, I've got a bb gun shot window. I'll take it for the amount paid. The trailer is really dirty, but it has a new fridge, updated AC and water heater.
