Custom 1969 Airstream Sovereign 31′
NOTE: This trailer is about 90 complete. Usable as is, but needs some final finishing work.
This trailer has been a work in progress from the ground up. It was fully gutted down to the frame, and rebuilt back up. Everything has been gone through as it was rebuilt. Frame repairs, new subfloor sealed, insulation, wiring, plumbing, finishes, everything. All new mechanicals: water pump, heat pump/AC, water heater, fixtures, etc. It was ripped down completely to the frame and shell, everything that was put back in place is new.
Everything is complete and ready to use, other than some minor finishes, and the bathroom. The bathroom is completely roughed in, ready for shower, sink and compost toilet.
We have taken it out and camped with it as is a few times. When my youngest was born I ran out of time and ambition and never completed it 100%. I did have it appraised with a value of completion and the appraisal value came back significantly more than what my asking price is. I will share that 26 page appraisal document with any seriously interested party.
There are some things that need to be completed, but this is a great opportunity for someone with DIY skills. I estimate that this can be completed for under 3000 in cost build/finish bathroom and minor finishes and be turned for a significant profit, or have large equity in your next tiny home, or travel trailer.
I can provide more detailed information about build, finishes and what is left to complete for serious inquiries only.
I will not ship, must come to pick up. It has all new hubs and is towable. I will also include the weight distribution hitch.
Please reach out with any questions. SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY. I do not need to sell it, I just do not have the time to work on it, and would rather see it get finished and used.
I priced this based on what I think it’s worth. I am by no means an expert on valuing custom Airstreams. I have a ton of time and money into this, so I estimated a number based on that. If I’m way out of line, and you are seriously interested, let’s talk price. It is negotiable!

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.
