The weak spot in all Airstreams is the floor. That is what can get a person in trouble, however, extensive repairs can be defrayed if a person is capable of DIY.
There is one poster on here who bought a trailer with a crazy rusted frame, but it came from FL, I think maybe a prior hurricane storm surge washed it with salt water.
