You just need to keep looking. It took me two years to get the trailer I wanted at the price I wanted to pay. You can do this.

My Mother is trying to sell her 34' Airstream. I believe it's a '91 Classic. She wants about 23K. It was used about 8 months of the year full time until my Dad died in'06. It has only been moved once since then from AZ to Carson City, NV. If your interested PM me and I can get more details for you.

I need to be closer to mid-20s. I don't expect a real return on my investment, but I know that Airstreams hold their value better than most. But if I had a $7K '76 Airstream and put $25K in it to restore/remodel it, am I still left with a $7k trailer? In the eyes of a banker, I think the answer is yes. Meaning, whoever I sold it to couldn't get financing for it. And for me and my situation, I don't plan on keeping the trailer for more than 2 years. Howver, things could change. That's just the plan for right now.
Check the forum classifieds! Texas, NM and AZ tend to be the happy hunting grounds - no mold or water damage. I do know of a 2002 31 classic for sale here in VA - asking price 35K and it's almost cherry. (But that's a long way to travel and you'd have to tow it back.)

Here's a 34' tri-axle in TEXAS
Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.
