Exterior body condition: Note any dents or scrapes, any panel replacements, hail damage?: There are a couple of dents and some hail damage. The one dent is in the stone shields and the other is in the front, top front. That dent has been there since we purchased the trailer. Up until the last two years I've waxed the Airstream twice a year so other than oxidation on the Airstream lettering there aren't a lot of scratches. The plastic on the rear bumper is showing their age but there isn't really a problem. There is some rust on the tow portion of the trailer but nothing that a wire brush and a little paint can't fix. The cover on the propane tank needs painting. Hail Damage: There is hail damage on the top and upper the street side panels that I'd describe as mostly not visible from the ground. We did have to replace the skylights. There is damage to the Airstream lettering on the trailer. There is also one small place around the dent on the upper street side dent there the clear coat has pealed put has not changed in years.
Windows, Doors, Hatch Covers, Vent Covers, Skylights, Roof Fans..: At some point someone tried to pry open the front door, but it was that way when we purchased the trailer. The door seals tight and we haven't had any problems but again I'd consider replacing the seal because it is showing ware. Locks work great.The windows are all original and the seals are not a problem, but I would consider replacing them. Since the windows haven't been opened since last fall some may be difficult to open. There are two skylights on in the living area and the other in the bath area. As previously stated, both have been replaced. There are shades on each of the skylights. There are three vents. A small vent in the bath. There is a fantastic fan in the living area and one in the bedroom. Both have sensers that allow them to close in it starts raining. Hatch covers are in good shape. I'm not aware of any problems.
Awnings: Number and location:: There is one awning on the length of the curb side of the trailer that works fine and there isn't any damage. A little faded but not other problems.
Interior Layout: Sleeping, Kitchen, Bathroom locations: Two single beds and the couch pulls out to what I think is the size of a standard bed. There are two fold down tables by the couch. Ine larger of the two will seat 4 people and the smaller will seat two.The entrance door is in the front, and you enter into the living area. The couch folds out into a bed. The table that is on the street side of the Airstream can seat 4. There is also a small table that folds out from the other side of the trailer so you can seat up to 6 people. There is a counter for a TV next to the microwave, but we always put the TV on top of the microwave. There is a very small tare in the couch, but you can't find it unless you're looking for it. There is a TV connection for both the antenna and satellite. The Microwave, stove, oven and refrigerator work great. I've learned over the years to put freezer packs in the freezer and refrigerator when first turning them on. Gets them up and running more quickly. There is an under the sink water filter system for drinking water. The only problem in the kitchen area is the paint on the kitchen sink has worn away on the sink bottom. It's a stainless sink so I'm not sure why it was painted. The bath area is fine and the water heater operate on gas or electric. My wife has bad knees so I replaced the standard commode with a higher one several years ago. I also replaced the shower head last year because of poor waterflow. There are also two closets and drawers for storage in the bath area. There are also doors on each side of the bath so it can be closed off for privacy. The bedroom area has two single beds and the mattresses are only a few years old. There are also small cabinets at the foot of each of the beds for hanging things like shirts and slack. There are is under the bed storage and additional storage along the top of the trailer. There are mirrors in all of the closet doors. The street side can be lifted to provide access to the valves for the hot water tank when winterizing/de-winterizing the Airstream.

The carpeting is in good shape and had been shampooed at least once a year since we've owned the Airstream. The tile in the bath is showing some ware and could be replaced. Floor Coverings: The carpet in the living area and bedroom is in good condition because I've shampooed it at least once a year since we purchased the trailer. Tile in the bath should probably be replaced.

Any additional owner comments?: We originally purchased our Airstream as a spare bedroom when my stepson and his two teenage children moved into our home in MN. After they moved out, we had 3 spare bedrooms. When friends and family would come to visit, I'd always say; "You can stay in this bedroom or that bedroom or stay in the Airstream". Not a single person ever chose to stay in the house. What a shock. The best thing we ever did was join the MN Airstream club. We learned so much about our Airstream, had many great adventures, saw things we would never have seen on our own and made many friends. On one caravan to Medora, ND, for a region 7 rally, we spent the night in Fargo. We were treated to an old-time silent movie in a fully restored movie theater that had a magnificent organ that raised from below the stage floor to play beautiful music for our MN Airstream group. Of course, a Coke and popcorn were also included. If you buy our Airstream, I hope you have as many great adventures and memories as my wife and I had. Safe travels!
