I look forward to soaking up some knowledge from everyone!

Welcome to the forum!

Lots of good people here, ready to help if you have any questions.

New to Airstream

Hello we are looking to possibly purchase a 1992 Airstream Classic 32í. It has been Remodeled inside perfect condition like the farmhouse look. Outside also redone new heat/air/floors everything.
How can we know it is worth 55k? This camper was used by the people that own it and it is pristine. Our thoughts are to put on rv Resort campground lot we may buy and use and rent it out as well from time to time.
What are your thoughts on resale?

Welcome! Cool rig! If you're planning to sell it for a profit, my advise is to TURN BACK NOW! These trailers are wonderful to customize and rebuild yourself, but boy does it get expensive real quick. If you're building it out for your own use, rebuilding is a wonderfully rewarding hobby. But if you plan to recoup your investment ... whew ... not likely.

Greetings and salutations!
I just acquired an 1988 Argosy 5th wheel in need of some TLC but overall not bad shape. As the snow melts and days get longer I hope to rehab this into a spanking nice trailer! Wood all seems to be good but their has been some leakage in the roof that will require new ceiling to be put in the lower part. Bedroom and bath look to be damage free. A little sweat equity and I'll have made out on this deal like a bandit! I look forward to mining this site for info and advice and sharing anything new along the way. I was really excited to find out how rare these beasts are. Happy camping!

Hey guys!

We are newbies. My husband inherited a '72 excella 500. Its 31ft, and was free. Family has recently replaced floor because fridge is leaking. Critters especially mice have taken home in it at some point and ate on food and who knows what. It has a ton of spray foam where they tried to keep the critters out (rear bumper, tire wells, step area). The front passenger side belly popped a couple rivets got caught by wind otw home and now has duct tape holding it in place. Of course it needs weatherstripping redone. The windows have condensation between them some of the window holder things that keep them open are fragile and need replacing. A/c supposedly runs you out, oven and stove work. The interior walls are nasty and possibly house mold/ mildew although has no real pungent smell. We have removed the dry rotted awning. They were living out of it before they got a new one and parked this one under the trees for about 2years. We would like to know tips, tricks, lifestyle, is it worth redoing, where to start, everything? Thanks

Same as inheriting a home, 1972 vintage, where nothing has ever been updated and little maintenance the last 47 years. At least with a house, the land has some residual value. Sounds like a project trailer.

Hello Fellow Airstreamers,
I have not posted before, but have been reading for a long time. My wife and I have been camping on and off for about 40 years. We have had just about every type of unit, except class B and I finally suggested to her that we go back to an Airstream. We had a 75th anniversary 27' Classic until I thought we needed more room. MISTAKE! We now own a 2019 30' Classic Twin. We attended this year's Alumapalooza and enjoyed it. I am looking forward to picking up ideas from other owners.
