Whats the condition of the axles?
From what you describe, that price is a couple of thousand too high, if not more.
If it has a household type reefer, that is a big negative.
The body damage, can be very expensive to have repaired.
As an example, one quarter panel, or one segment replacement will run $!000.00 to $1200.00, each.
Side sheet replacement usually starts at $2000.00 or more, depending on the size of the trailer. In your case much more.
Also, Airstream never made a 1972 30 foot trailer. If it has tandem axles, it's will be a 25, 27, 29 or 31 feet long.
