2010 Classic Newb

Hello,

I've identified a 2010 Classic 30' I'm very interested in purchasing. I'd like to have it inspected by a AS guru as I'm some distance away from the unit which is located in the Livermore, CA area.

Is there a specific location on this forum where I may be able to find a person to perform a thorough inspection?

Are there specific things related to this model that are known to be problematic I should be aware of?

Thanks.

I would check the subfloor anywhere you can. ie under cabinets, in storage area in back of trailer. An ice pick is a good way to check subfloor through the carpet. If it pokes right through then itís water damage. I would have owner show you that all systems work. Check out all electrical systems and batteries. Find out how long it has been since wheel bearings and brakes have been checked/replaced. Also check manufacturing dates on tires. Check the roof for obvious leak issues, skylights can become brittle as well. Leaking black and gray water tank valves is another thing to check. Hope this helps.

Go to members search and advanced search then put in California and check the trailer inspector box." I looked quickly and didn't see anyone really close. It may take a little while to get someone to respond as well. There is an Airstream dealership in Fairfield CA that you might want to consider and actually might be preferable. I would think the seller would haul it up there for you if you're a serious buyer.
My Wife says that the biggest test for a used trailer is the sniff test. Sewer mold or mildew smells and we would be out of there. Running gear is important and I would defiantly check the age of tires. There is a checklist for inspectors somewhere on the forum so you may want to take a look at that.
We bought ours when is was a couple years old and a thousand miles away. We were prepared to walk away if something didn't seem right. Even after an inspection we did our own inspection as well which didn't make the owner very happy but it's a big investment.
Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about our purchase.
Good luck!
