This 1972 27’ Airstream Overlander (International) had been kept all its life in Reno, Nevada, and was gently used by a couple who passed it down to their daughter. We purchased the trailer in May 2020 and towed it to eastern Oregon. We spent eight weeks gutting it and getting it ready for an extended trip. We hit the road at the end of July 2020 and traveled 4,114 miles, living in it full time. We pulled it to Idaho, Wyoming, Montana (north to Glacier National Park), and then west to Washington, the Oregon coast, and northern California. We traveled through Nevada and Utah and a finally arrived in Arizona at the end of October.
The trailer towed beautifully with our Dodge Ram 1500 (with a Hemi 5.7 L) and a weight distribution hitch (which comes with the trailer). During our 4,000 miles of traveling, we had no mechanical issues; everything worked perfectly. We are done traveling for awhile, and would like to pass this wonderful Airstream on to someone else to enjoy. We have all the receipts, and are selling this trailer for only what we have put into it.
Most photos are from our travels, but we have since painted the interior with primer and several coasts of Behr eggshell bright white. There are a couple of photos of that near the end, as well as the beautiful roof coating.

A note on the awnings:
The driver side awning works fine.
The passenger side awning is not currently operational – but the canvas is in fine condition. When we purchased the trailer, we were able to open the awning, set it up, and close it. After removing it (to clean and service all of the components), it didn’t quite go back together correctly. There had been some minor damage at some point in its history. We have all of the pieces, and I’m confident that the awning can be made operational again with a little work and possibly a few new parts.
Solar Panel System:
The solar panels are not mounted. Legs have been added to the panels to allow them to be set up and moved as needed. The 30’ PV cables sit in the electrical compartment and are pulled out and connected to the panels. Everything is wired (cables to the solar charger to the batteries). I probably would have mounted the panels on the roof if we’d had the time. However, the system works well as-is. The panels could be mounted on the roof, using the existing cables to connect the panels to the solar charger.
It’s ready for the road; add laminate or luxury vinyl flooring for an even cleaner look. The subfloor is in great condition. We wire brushed it, applied a primer, then painted it with a concrete floor paint. It’s in nice condition though could use some touch up or some nice rugs. We used a table and chairs at the front window and a desk and chair at the driver side window.
Please note: There is no enclosed, self-contained bathroom in this trailer. The original blackwater tank in the rear was left in place (under the floor) and could be re-used. There is room in the trailer to add a small bathroom, with vanity/sink, RV toilet, and small shower stall. The galley sink drains to a fitting under the belly pan. You can drain into the 22 gallon portable waste tank or attach a hose and lead it into the woods to drain sink water (when boondocking). The kitchen sink does have pressurized hot/cold water, either hooked up to city water or with the 12 volt water pump when boondocking.
