This Airstream – Maricopa, aptly named for the county in Arizona she came to us from – has been designed and renovated by the folks at perpetually devastated – a partnership of makers and doers committed to excellent craftsmanship, authentic aesthetics, and livable art. This 1967 Caravel was beautiful to begin with (as these sixties relics are want to be), but we decided to up the ante, taking it as an opportunity to combine crafting with reclaimed wood and the Airstream renovation we’re known for.
The lath used to create the floor came from a home we’re presently remodeling in Seattle. It was built in 1924, and we were overjoyed to be able to salvage these pieces. We brought them back to the workshop in California, and decided against a perfectly consistent pattern, opting instead to reflect the creative force of chance, disorder, even chaos. These boards are not perfect, they are not completely straight. They are well worn and well loved – the perfect foundation for art meant to be lived in. Life isn’t perfect, and art shouldn’t be either. This is a labor of love for the craft, folks.
Step inside this Caravel’s impeccable mirror-finished exterior to discover a fully furnished atmosphere set off by the hand-crafted floor. This intricate design complements the caramel cushions and golden hues of the interior lights. We’ve also appointed the Airstream with some of our favorite goodies to help you settle in and feel at home, including a faribault woolen blanket, compagnie de provence soap, echoview wool dish drying mat, throws, pillows, a simple stripe sheet set, and more. Everything is included!

Consider these tips in order to send or receive payment safely.
Know the vehicle’s market value
Be very suspicious of any vehicle priced significantly below market value. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Confirm contact information
Verify the seller’s physical address and phone number BEFORE SENDING PAYMENT. Zip codes, area codes and addresses should match up.
Use email wisely
Do not send personal or financial information (such as your social security number, credit card number or checking account number) to a seller via email. Email communications are not secure.
Do not use money transfer services, such as Western Union to pay for online purchases
Even Western Union recommends against using their service or similar services to pay for online purchases. Be cautious about any seller who will only accept a money transfer.
If using an escrow service for payment, make sure it is a reputable, valid escrow service
Some buyers, purchasing outside their local area, may consider using an escrow service. If so, make sure it is a legitimate service. Go directly to the website of the escrow service. Do NOT go to an escrow service through a link in the seller’s e-mail or use a service based on a referral from the seller. Check the web address to make sure you are at the valid website.
Get a detailed receipt
Ask the seller for a receipt that states whether the Airstream is being sold with a warranty or “as is.”
Get title to the vehicle
Make sure you know what’s required in your state to transfer title to the vehicle you’re buying.
Confirm contact information
Be wary of buyers willing to purchase your item sight-unseen, especially buyers located overseas. Always verify the buyer’s street address and valid phone number.
Verify that a certified check is genuine
Verify authenticity with the issuing bank prior to depositing a certified check. Make sure the account contains sufficient funds and the issuing bank guarantees payment on the check. Once deposited in your account, it may take a week or more for the check to clear. Acceptance by your bank does not guarantee the check is valid and funds are available. A cashier’s check can take 30 days or more to clear.
Secure payment first
Do not transfer the title until you have payment in hand at the agreed upon price (and you have verified that the payment is valid.
Beware of overpayment or other complicated payment schemes
Do not agree to any plan where the buyer asks to send a check for more than the sale price and requests that the seller refund the difference. Be suspicious of any buyer who proposes making payment through a friend or agent of the buyer.
File a report. File a report at www.ic3.gov with the Internet Crime Complaint Center, a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), and the Bureau of Justice Administration (BJA). IC3 gives victims of cyber crime a convenient and easy-to-use reporting mechanism.
