ebay listing

Hi! I'm new to the forum and my husband and I are looking for our first Airstream. We have especially fallen in love with the idea of an Argosy. Would prefer 20-24 feet, needs to have good bones and not need anything major (i.e., $$$) right away. We're hoping to keep a budget around $10k but are starting to wonder if all that will get us is a trailer that looks ok but has a ton of issues hiding beneath the surface. Anyway, what do those of you with experience make of this one?

Thanks for any insights!

There is only so much you can tell from pictures. The trailer looks clean and well prepared for selling. There are a few items of concern for me.

1.In the picture of the two wheels it appears that the wheel on the right is bent in and not in alignment with the other wheel. If rgat is true, the fix for this would be to replace both of the axles. This would cost you a couple of thousand dollars. It could be just the angle of the picture, but it does not look right to me.
2. The RV refrigerator has been replaced with what appears to be a dorm fridge which only runs on shore power. This would limit you to stay only in placed with electric hookups.

Further inspection might find other issues.

Thank you for the response azflycaster. I can see what you mean about the tires! I also hadn't thought about that with the fridge, so again, I appreciate your time responding!
