ha! so true.

We looked quite some time to find a sound Airstream that rolled, where the owner hadn't made improvements that were preciou$ to them.

Having everything accessible around the trailer is a huge plus, as is having cleaned the inside. Others may disagree, but when I see weeds around the coach and dust inside that has settled since the Clinton administration, in my mind, I feel I'm doing them a favor by removing an eyesore and am going to offer less. Just my POV.

Finally: I don't expect to get my investment back, ever. We fix these things up the way we like them for our use, and the next person isn't necessarily of the same mind. When in doubt, do not make the spend. (Goes for most homes, too, unless you are a pro flipper.)

I'm intrigued by the eBay suggestion. Believe it or not, perhaps now is a good time, with the coronovirus issue, many rethinking their lives. I was on a vintage townhall meeting on Zoom and several attendees had recently bought new project trailers.

I'll take some what I'm ready to sell it sometime in the mid-summer. Right now it's not terribly presentable.

No it's not total junk because I'm living in it. But it does need some work as I've mentioned. So I think pumping up the tires as the first thing in order.
Thanks for the advice.

I particularly liked the last line. I paid about $10,000 for this Airstream back in about 1994. So I think I've gotten my money's worth.
Thanks,
Robert

Whit,
THough I'm capable of fixing it up, I lack the desire, so I will take your advice and start first with inflating or replacing the tires. Thanks much!

Thanks for the advice. I believe by this Fall I'll be ready to sell...with a clean interior and pumped-up tires--as is.

Since I paid $10,000 for it in the mid 90's ANYTHING would be an added plus. Thanks.
