I'm in the market for an Airstream, and there's a 1984 and a 1978 in the same size that are available. Given all the other considerations, the two are roughly equivalent prices.
Now first of all, I haven't seen either one personally up close, and there may well be considerations about either that would put it out of the question. But what I'm looking for is opinions about which year is more likely to have major problems.
Like "For gosh sakes, don't buy a 1978, because that's when Beatrice Foods had 'em firmly in the trash!" or "Watch out for the 1984's because they all explode once a week!" , or general wisdom like that....
Any input or suggestions? Thanks!
