Vintage 1967 Airstream Ambassador Land Yacht 28’ Sleeps 4
Wow, it is so hard to let this go. We have owned and loved this wonderful vintage Airstream for over 20 years and had lots of fun trips in Michigan, Colorado, Ohio, New York and in between! After using it as a big stationary playhouse for our granddaughter for the last 5 years, we were about to use it this fall. We have updated and refurbished it over the years and were in the process of doing so again when a newer and longer Airstream caught our eye and we bought that. It is not practical for us to own 2 Airstreams…
So our beloved ‘67 is looking for a new home and a new family to make more memorable adventures on the road in the spring.
This airstream really was before its time with the pull-out kitchen drawers, etc.
It has the original storage cabinets above and below the gaucho, above and below the twin beds, in the kitchen and bathroom. These should be gone through and repaired, as needed.
It also has 2 hanging closets between the beds and bathroom. It is the model with a rear bathroom and beds in the middle.
It has a gaucho couch in front that turns into a very comfortable double bed. The original foam and upholstery on the gaucho have been replaced.
The dining table is in front of the gaucho couch and it folds up against the wall. It also extends out as a table for 2 or extends to become a table for 4.
In the kitchen there is 3 burner stovetop that works well.
This has a double sink, which I really prefer to the newer airstreams with a single round kitchen sink. (What were they thinking?) This double sink has one Formica sink cover that matches the yellow Formica countertops. The bottom of the sink cover can double as a wood chopping board.
There is a brand new chrome pull-out kitchen sink faucet and a pump soap dispenser that was installed last summer before we bought the other Airstream.
There are 2 twin size beds and we have brand new, still in the box, custom made memory foam mattresses we had bought this summer as well. We used to have 2 futons in there and they worked well, too. We had our handyman make extensions and removeable supports so the two twin beds could be slid together to form a king bed. In the pictures, you can see the boxes that still have new mattresses in them.
There are 2 hanging closets at the end of each twin bed. The closets each have a hanging rod and a shelf.
Just past the hanging closets it the bathroom, complete with a bathtub as well as the original nylon shower curtain with gold trim. There is lots of storage in the bathroom too. There is also a new chrome faucet in the bathroom sink.
Our Airstream has 2, top-of-the-line, Fantastic Fans with thermostats and rain sensors that automatically close the fans when there is precipitation and then open the covers back up when it clears. The trim panels need to be installed. They are included.
The original Magic Chef oven looks so cool with the yellow enamel door and red oven knobs! Again, I never used it, so we don’t know if it works. Some people take the oven out and replace it with a microwave/convention oven but this stove looks so awesome! This unit has to be reinstalled (a simple process), but can now be easily removed to check and repair it.
The refrigerator and freezer are complete with all shelves and racks. We are not sure if it works. We always used both as a coolers with a block of ice in a tray on the bottom shelf. This unit needs to be reinstalled (this, too, is a relatively simple process). As it is, it can be easily removed and checked/repaired, as needed.
The outside hood for the refrigerator, located on top of the trailer, needs to be replaced. It is included.
The screens need new screening on them.
This has newer stone looking vinyl flooring everywhere except the bathroom. Most of the flooring is solid. However, the floor sags from just behind the rear axle to the rear of the trailer. The bathroom floor is soft in various locations and needs to be replaced. The trailer frame in the rear might need to be repaired when replacing the rear floor.
The original water heater has been removed. A top of the line Girard GSWH-2 tankless hot water heater is included and would be installed after the flooring repair. The special cover panel that fits this year Airstream is also included.
The 12 volt system should be updated. A new 12V battery and fuse panel are included.
The 110V AC system functions, but I would consider upgrading this.
The 7-way trailer wiring needs some maintenance.
Window gaskets need to be replaced. Most of the materials to do this are included.
There is brand new pex plumbing throughout. Some finish work is required to make it all fully functional.
The marker lights need to be replaced. LED lights to replace them are included.
We had new axles, electric brakes, rotors, and tires put on about 6 years ago. These have seen less than 500 road miles. Although the tires are close to new, they have been sitting for the past six years and may need to be replaced.
All linens shown and other supplies are included in the price of this wonderful Airstream.
We have not travelled in this lovely Airstream in 5 years, so as I said it is time for someone to get it back on the road, love it and enjoy it as much as we have!
Please understand this is a 53 year old travel trailer, so you should have “reasonable” expectations. Serious inquiries only. Please call or text to see it in person.

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. IC3 in turn alerts authorities by referring reports to the correct law enforcement or regulatory agencies at the federal, state, local and international level.
