New Member - Looking to Purchase an Airstream

Looking for a nice 25-31' Airstream for family use. We have two teen age sons who love to camp, and we want to move up from the tent scene. I do not want a major project and willing to spend up to 15K for the right trailer. Prefer rear bedroom - and looking within 200 miles of Austin, Texas.

Thanks !

I found mine on Craigslist, and there's classifieds on Airforums somewhere. Find one you like and the folks on here will be glad to give you insights.
I admit to being powerless over housecleaning and social niceities

Ours was on AirForums Classifieds and Ebay I think. My only advise to you is "BE ABLE TO REACH OUT AND TOUCH IT"
Pick something thats no more than a weekend away or better yet a few hrs drive. Go inspect it in person. There are people here that can do a preliminary volunteer inspection for you,but the final is up to U. There are people here with tips on what to look for,what models to stay away from ,where to look for the trouble spots.

Welcome sgray,

Glad that you're here with us. Do you have a particular year or range of years models in mind?
