Thank you eBay gods!

On a quiet Sunday night, I sat in the dark refreshing my browser over and over again. I put in my top bid on a 1973 23′ Safari Airstream on eBay in the last 10 minutes of the bidding. I tried to wait longer, but couldn’t. With 30 seconds left, someone went $50 over my high bid. Gosh darn it all. Ok, just one bid higher, 23 seconds …. refresh …. refresh ….. refresh ….. “You have won this auction!” Yeah, she’s mine, all mine! I’m still running on adrenaline, cuz I didn’t get any sleep last night.

Before I bid, I visited the trailer on Saturday up between Cayuga and Seneca Lakes at Fletcher’s Trailer Sales on Rt 227. A pristine workshop with organized vintage trailers and buses lined up and some hiding behind trees. Fletch works on all kinds of trailers and is a great guy. He and Denise live in a log cabin built by his parents in the 1940’s. They are and have a great country treasure.

The trailer is not in good condition internally and Fletch made no bones about whether any of the utilities worked.

Externally, she looks pretty good.

A broken curb-side front corner window and a concerning hole in the belly pan, but mostly intact.

Fletch kindly offered to deliver the trailer since we don’t have a tow vehicle yet. What a guy! It’s coming next week sometime.
