Price as shown is in Canadian dollars. I have no problem selling to people from the US, as long as you can get up here with the border restrictions. Your money is good with me. $45,000 Cdn is roughly $36,000 USD.
You are viewing the 1969 Airstream Globetrotter. Long considered the pinnacle of Airstream manufacturing, this model represented a transition from old to new. This model has wooden cabinets, with liftable doors. There are fresh water and black water tanks above the floor. There is no grey water tank, however, with a drain cap, the grey water sources drain through the sewage pipe. Without a drain cap on the grey water drain, the grey water will gush onto the ground, subjecting your camping neighbors to the smell of your last night’s dinner. So keep the cap on, or have one of those portable honey wagon things to catch your coffee water.
The Globetrotter is a single axle trailer, weighing 3,330 dry, and with a hitch weight of 390 pounds, the Globetrotter can be towed by many suitably equipped SUVs. We tow it with a 2019 Chevy Blazer with the 3.6L V6 without problems. I would say “you hardly know it’s there”, but anyone who tows should beware of that feeling. When I look in the rear view mirror, I don’t want to be surprised to see a trailer.
The trailer boasts a front dinette, with comfortable seating for 4, and an expensive (for me) Russian Birch table. This folds down into a huge bed for 2, that does not block the door. This is a reference to the original layout, in which there were two twin beds up front, one for each bench, and the bed by the door had this extension thing that flipped out to support that person’s feet, but in the process, it blocked the door, so anyone needing to duck out of the camper would bark their shins on this bed, and wake everyone up . In the back, there is another double bed comfortable for another 2 people. This extends from a couch position, partially blocking the door to the bathroom. There is more than adequate storage underneath both areas.
The kitchen has the original working oven and cooktop, sink and faucet. Propane flows from the oven, is ignited, and cooks your food adequately. The faucet spits water into the basin. The basin holds the water, and then lets it drain into the grey water drain.
Hot water tank works. The knob to turn it on is a bit stiff, but it does turn. Finger strength recommended.
Furnace was removed, although the capped propane line is still in place, so possible to add back on. We have found, at electrical sites, that one small heater is sufficient to keep the interior warm even down to 20 degrees Celsius, which is wicked cold in both Celsius and Fahrenheit. The air conditioning keeps this trailer cool on the warmest days. No thermostat, but the buttons work. It also has a heat strip device that works to a certain extent (although we preferred to have directional heaters blowing hot air)
Fridge works on electricity the exhaust vent was snipped when the counter was replaced, although it would be possible to put it back in. But really, why would you? We have never used the fridge on propane. Just feels weird to burn something, and by doing so make the contents of this box cold.
Parts of the plumbing system the parts that blew apart when I did not adequately winterize it last winter have been replaced with pex, the remainder is tight and the original copper.
Running lights work, trailer brakes work. Original propane tanks may need re valving before next fill.
The cabinets were sanded and refinished in the last 5 years. Painted a pleasing shade of teal too.
The bathroom works. Toilet is hooked up. Shower works. Water drains through the grey water drain or directly into the sewage pipe, depending on how you have it set up. I will throw in a portable honey wagon that you can use to drain your grey water tank into. There is no denying that the bathroom is on the small side, but time-period appropriate.
The cushions on the front and back seating areas are original, with original plywood backing where appropriate. The storage bins are the original cream colored plastic.
The radio has been modernized, and works. Connection to the two speakers verified.
Tires 4 to 5 years old. Spare included. New 7 pin pigtail as of last fall. That replaced the one that I let drag on the pavement for oh, about 60 miles last fall.
This is an awesome trailer, possibly the best Airstream of all time, ready to travel right now. There is a dent on the right rear that mars the aesthetics, but in no way impinges on functionality. Canopy works and can be deployed easily.
One of the front curvy windows was replaced by a Lexan pane. I think there’s one other window that is Lexan. The cover for the front windows is custom-made and works to repel stone chips.
Own a piece of history and take it on adventures!

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.
