Looking to purchase a used airstream trailer to use in southeast AZ, off the grid. Would like to know pros and cons of these units, what to look for & price range. How do these aluminum trailors fare in the desert? Also, solar cababilities. Considering compost toilet. Can anyone share info regarding this kind of usage? Also, maybe you have one to sell?
Just purchased a 2010...

We spent Sept 09 looking at at least 40+ Airstream (AS) trailers and Argosy trailers. The last trailer (15') we had was in 1980. The purpose of the trailer is to enjoy with our grown children and the grandchild locally. Travel south (hubby just retired from 60hrs a week) to Palm Springs, CA and sit sections of the winter. We also want to enjoy rally's with WBCC (going to Wyoming this year!)and Vintage AS groups. To meet this purpose we love the 78 27/28'. It has lots of light. Ours has the vista windows as well as those great wrap around windows. Price had a factor in the issue. We like the idea of painting it and not having to polish regularly as well. Now that is not to say we would not love a newer AS but for now this one when ready for late spring will do the job. I suggest you analysis the purpose for the trailer and then let that help you dictate the chose. Have fun shopping!
