My husband and I (more I than my hubby) have been toying with the idea of getting a vintage airstream. We are both very . . . very handy (we've been remoding our house for the last few years, ripping out walls, retilling bathrooms, etc) so we weren't worried if we found one that needed TLC.
I've been a reader of this site off-and-on for a couple of years, so when my hubby called me last night to tell me that he found a 1981 (newer that I had originally thought about owning) 27' (the exact size I wanted) International that appeared to be all original the next town over, I immediatley went to this site to review what I needed to check for before buying it. It had one owner and his daughter was selling it. Asking price was $5,500 (reduced from $7,500). As we piled into the car to go look at it tonight, I got a call saying that she had taken a deposit on it and was taking it off the market.
As you can image, I was quite dissappointed!
We will keep looking, but I seems that there are not alot of 1980's for sale. Is that because the market had dropped? Or because most of the people who bought them in the 80's still use them? Any suggestions?
