Hello from Alabama

I have been reading the forum for several weeks and have learned a great deal in a short amount of time. I am currently looking for a trailer and have actually looked at a couple. Thanks to what I have read and learned here, I was able to spot some problems that would require costly repairs (like the axles being shot) that made the asking price of them way too high.

I am not in a huge hurry to purchase, but would like to have one by the Fall. I am not set on a particular year, model or length either. It will be used as a base camp during the fall/winter hunting season (parked in a full hookup camp) and weekend trips throughout the spring and summer months being towed around the South. I have a 95 Chevy Suburban 4x4 with the 454 engine, so towing should not be a problem. Also, while I am not opposed to taking on projects if the purchase price was set accordingly, I would prefer one that is "ready to go" with working AC, refrigerator, heater, water pump, tanks, solid floor, etc.

I guess that I should also add that my budget has me looking in the 1991 or older models. Some of the newer ones out there are a bit too nice for my needs at this point.

If you would help me keep on the lookout, it would be most appreciated.

Thank you.

Jon, welcome. You are in the right place.

I will keep my eyes open for local Airstreams. You might also check the classifieds. Sometimes Alabama units are listed here.

Heck, yeah! Although I do believe it must be capitalized...
