This custom, renovated Airstream is an adventurer’s dream. We spent one year renovating this beauty and then a year travelling all over America. It is now ready for a new owner!
400W Flexible solar panels together with 2000W inverter/charger and four golf cart batteries will ensure that you have plenty of power when you boondock. Trailer tongue was professionally designed and reinforced to hold the battery boxes and for improved maneuverability. New tires including a spare, re-chromed original half moon hub caps. Belly pan was dropped, rotten wood replaced, frame was inspected and treated against rust. The whole trailer was then sealed including the often problematic back bumper area.
The interior features custom walnut dinette (table lowers down to make a bed) and wraparound cabinet, walnut countertops in kitchen and bath. Fresh zero VOC Benjamin Moore paint throughout. Vessel sink in bathroom and premium Delta Trinsic champagne bronze faucets with custom marble tile backsplash in kitchen and bathroom shower. New hickory hardwood floors. We painstakingly renovated the furniture instead of ripping it out because we wanted to preserve the vintage feel including the original walnut veneer 2-way fridge. New solar wiring and updated existing electrical, LED lights, partly new PEX plumbing, new water tank, new pump, new gas lines, copper water lines (kills germs). New wave 6 catalytic propane heater that is safe to run inside (stay comfortable even around 10°F). Original ZipDee curved arm awning in working order. Exterior freshly polished. We have the original manual together with original receipts from the first owner. All appliances work fridge, heater, water heater, stovetop except the oven’s pilot light stays lit but I couldn’t get it to work yesterday, its a bit temperamental. There is too many updates and upgrades to list but I saved every single receipt from every purchase during renovation. The trailer was professionally appraised by James Polk, an Airstream expert, for insurance purpose at 57 500. As per Polk Valuations this travel trailer is in outstanding condition.

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.
