we drove 750 miles to pick up our first AS, and we thought that was long distance. Our story mimics yours, we knew what we wanted (thought we did), looked and looked, lost out on a couple then found one. To get to the question, have someone that knows Airstreams go and check it over for you, that's my advice, you don't want to drive 2 days for a surprise.

Ultimately Covid-19 settles this.
Logistically we just couldn't work this deal out.

I wonder how others have handled long distance deals during the pandemic?
I suppose that's another thread.
Thanks for the input.
As always on this forum, you gave me thought provoking info, it's appreciated.

We ultimately passed this trailer because we couldn't figure out a way to inspect it due to the logistics Covid forced on us.
The trailer went off Classifieds shortly after.
I had some regrets about passing on it.

Now I see its back on the market.
How do you go about asking/selecting an Airstream inspector from the area to check out the unit (I know you click on portal - how do you discern (assuming there is more than one in the needed location) which one to choose)?

Do you pay these people?
If so how much?

The consignment agreements I've seen include a separate charge to the seller for a comprehensive inspection and an obligation to permit the dealer to perform necessary repairs or disclose flaws not repaired. Another inspection would be redundant except to the extent something wasn't observed the first time. Ask if this requirement was part of the consignment agreement.
