A big repair job or a bargain??
 
Hi folks,

I'm a new member on these forums and an Airstream-wannabee. I'm a Brit so at the moment my most likely course of action is to buy an Airstream over the internet/phone from the UK and get it shipped over.

I have found this Airstream at Colonial Airstream (NJ based) which looks like it needs some TLC and which could work for me if I can sort out the repair issues....

So, I guess my question is, judging from the photos and the information given is this likely to be a big repair job? Basically, it looks as though the back of the toilet area has been leaking into the floor area under the desk. Will all the floor need to be ripped up and is it easy to get access to just a section of the floor or will it require a full floor strip out? I appreciate that this largely depends on how much the leakage spread and also what material the floor is.

Any help or advice - either on the floor or any of the other 'problems' it has - would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Richard

The photo's etc, have been removed on e-bay.

Suggestion. Why don't you have the dealer here, as part of the deal, do the repair, and document it with before and after photo's?

Could save you some money.

Ebay won't let you directly link into an auction ... why? Beats me but if you go and enter the item # you go right there.

Ya! Looks that way. The link tested find the first couple of times then went bad. Thanks e-bay. :p

Buying any Airstream sight-unseen is a crap shoot at the best of times. I know it's even harder to find one in the UK but they are there. A friend of mine in Warrington found a nice Safari a few years ago that was brought over by someone serving in the US military.

Good luck,
