Buy a used Airstream RV by finding a listing for a model that meets the buyer's specific needs on a site such as RV Trader, Airstream Classifieds, eBay or Craigslist, and contact the seller. Depending on the site and the seller requirements, payments are either made in person or remotely.
The first step a buyer should take when considering the purchase of a used Airstream RV is to research the different models available, and assess her most important requirements. She should think about how often she plans to use the RV, how many people she plans to fit in it, the types of amenities that matter most and how long each trip in the RV is going to be. These factors help determine which aspects are most important, such as optimal size, model and year as well as gain a general understanding of how much that model of Airstream should cost.
Once a buyer is fully informed and prepared, she should visit a classifieds or auction site and begin her search. Using the site's search filters allows the buyer to exclude trailers that are too expensive, too big or too old and find the listings that meet all of the buyer's needs and conditions. The final step involves contacting the seller to inspect the trailer and work out specific payment arrangements.
