1969 was the first year of the new Airstream body style, which the basic shape is still in production. It was major milestone year for Airstream. The 1969 Globetrotter is a very well built Airstream with a solid body and a real wood interior. The windows are much better than the 1968 model year in my view. We have owned this trailer since 2010 but haven’t used it much. It is a California built trailer and we think the majority of its life has been in the dry southwest. The trailer is in good shape. The body is not perfect with dings and flaws here and there, so you won’t feel bad if you add another one. This Airstream is 53 years old and ready for another 50 years of use. The trailer is 21 feet long ball to bumper and the Airstream specs says it is a trailer weight is 3400 lbs and the tongue weight is 400 lbs. It can be towed by a mid sized SUV. We used the Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 which worked very well. This trailer comes with a Reese Dual Cam weight distribution hitch. Here is a link to the documents:
We have renovated this Globetrotter from the ground up. Let’s review: new tires, better aluminum wheels, new high lift axle assembly with bearings, brakes, shocks and more ground clearance, new belly pan, new under floor insulation, painted frame (frame is in good shape), new waste water tank (24 gal), new See-Level tank monitor, newer 12v converter (2016), new AGM group 27 battery, new PEX plumbing, new water heater, new interior paint, new floor covering, new fridge (2016), new U shaped dinette that sleeps two nicely, new foam cushions, new mid bath layout with toilet and vanity, new rear twin bed 36’ x 83”, newer high efficient catalytic heater, new MaxAir ceiling vent, newer very nice home made curtains, new LED overhead lighting, new deadbolt lock, new window and door weather stripping, new screens, new outside hot &* cold shower wand, new utility connections (shore power, city water, sewer), created a bigger rear storage compartment, new front window rock guard, and we polished the Alclad aluminum exterior. We have “invested” over $12k in parts making this Globetrotter into a very functional, comfortable, reliable, ready to go Airstream travel trailer. This is the third vintage Airstream I have renovated. We will demonstrate all the trailer systems to a potential buyer from the ground up. No surprises.
Our Globetrotter doesn’t have an awning or an air conditioner. Both of these features can be added. Living in the Colorado mountains we found these features aren’t a high priority. Further, the fold out entry step is long gone. We use a plastic step instead.
The cell signal is very weak here. Please use this ad link to email me with your questions and interest. We can make a phone call appointment (I have to drive to get a signal) for a more detailed discussion about this vintage 1969 Globetrotter 21’.
Thanks for your interest.
