current "1997" 34' Airstream listing has false vin#

Hello, I hope no one is bidding on the 34' "1997" Airstream that is currently on eBay.
It is being sold as damaged with bill of sale only in NY

I purchased this from Coparts last year spent a pretty penny to get it home and discovered major discrepancies between my current '94 and this alleged '97. It is more likely a 1987 that someone put a 1997 vin# tag on the side.
The engraved vin# on the tongue tells a different story...

Buyer beware..... I believe the auction ends on Jan 14th.

Hope this is the correct place to post this.

1997 AIRSTREAM EXCELLA LIMITED 34FT CAMPER | eBay

Looks rough to me even if you got it for free.

Looks like it may have sold as a ' buy it now ' at $6500.... I did tell the history to the seller....

Or maybe he pulled it....

If you think it looked rough in the photos... You should have seen it in person. They slapped a sleet of aluminium over the street side bath window to cover the damage and then ......wait......... NAILED the bathroom door shut so you couldn't see the state of the bathroom....

I could go on and on but won't waste the space, would have been a good deal IF a True '97 with corian counters etc, not a beat up '87....

Hopefully "cheaters never prosper"

I love the idea of airstream owners inspecting airstream trailers on eBay for perspective owners. We had one inspected by what was suppose to be a reputable inspector but was extremely disappointed with the inspection. The Airstream turned out to be ideal and had very little use so we ended up trusting the owners and were not disappointed.

Love the idea! Is there a page where us Buyers can post what we are looking for with hopes of finding our airstream of our dreams? Would love for help and additional eyes!

Thanks!

Well, you can still place a "want to buy" ad on the Classified, IIRC. But there is no 'discussion' board there to talk it all over.

ps: dunno if you were looking for information on that subject on this thread, look at the dates of the last few posts...

I have just leased a lot on Hatteras Island which has (I think) a 1970 Overlander on it.It is a shell with a few molded pieces and some fittings intact. I have made it livable with plumbing,etc.. I'm new to this Airstream business, is it worth anything? Could somebody direct me to the proper site to find out? Thanks

You are here. There is a classified section here you could look at to see models close to your size and year.

Kevin in HI: here is a link to THE subforum on pricing, meant for the members to discuss and suggest values for trailers they may be considering buying or selling.

Lots of good info.

Trailer Values - Airstream Forums

ps: isn't 'HI' the code for the State of Hawaii?
