Meet our beloved “peppermint patty”.
We have owned her for 4 years now and are the proud 3rd owners. The original and 2nd owners were life long friends and airstream travelers.
Patty is a 31’ nearly completely original vintage 1971 flashback. The short list is what is not original, the AC, the fridge/microwave and the lvt flooring. Everything else is the way she came. The last owners took great pride in the unit and after nearly 3 hours of discussion agreed to sell to us, so long as we owned it we wouldn’t gut and “update it”.
We love vintage and cool unique stuff so no problem for us. She’s got everything from the look and feel of 1971 down to the Willie Nelson 8 track that still jams.
We have the original wheels, hubcaps (nearly impossible to find) even the original owners manual in the plastic sleeve! Every plastic storage bin in tact and functional. The curtains and upholstery redone by the 2nd owners who sourced a retired seamstress from airstream to complete the redo!
She’s dry and sound. 1 small soft spot under the bathroom sink, easily repaired from the rear access and the back storage at the tailgate latch is broken. The fan on the ducted heater runs and all the lights and plumbing run. We did mostly weekend warrior trips so we haven’t used the water storage, water heater or the LP for the oven. I’m fairly positive the oven hasn’t been used in a decade or so because it looks brand new.
We have a growing family and have run completely out of room. In honor of our commitment I don’t want to ruin a vintage treasure by gutting and remodeling. So it’s time Peppermint Patty moved on down the road again to another great adventure.

Thanks for the time and make it a great day!

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.
