Default Airstream Interstate Ext 3500

Looking at purchasing an Airstream Interstate Ext 3500. Thoughts? Do it? Forget it? Look at something else?
They look good and we think this is the direction we want to go. Already had the Monaco Executive, 27 Ft Jamboree, 27Ft Dynamax Dynaquest. Still want to travel around but want something like this instead of an SUV.

Any suggestions. Thanks

I would advise looking at a good used Interstate that's had all the factory induced problems corrected by now as opposed to buying a new one and trying to get all the problems fixed yourself.
A good place to look for information besides this forum is on Airforums.

I agree. Interstates have great designs and good materials, but initial build quality is awful--especially for the price.

I am also considering an Airstream Interstate EXT. How far back is good to consider (3-5 years)? Thanks!

Just an FYI: I started this thread over at AIR FORUMS.
