This Beauty is located in Gorgeous Santa Barbara, CA.

1973 Airstream Argosy. This thing is a SHOW STOPPER! Absolutely nothing like this out there. We call her our Little Blue Pearl.

She is absolutely stunning and road worthy. She’s only 24 feet, which makes her easy to tow and maneuver, and fits almost any trailer campground site. Most private and public campgrounds max out at 25 feet.

But even though she’s on the smaller side, she fits 4 adults comfortably, with two standard twin size beds, plus a table and sofas that convert to a queen size bed. She would make a great guest house/Airbnb rental as the beds don’t need to be set up and put away after every use and are easy to clean.

Professionally painted exterior with high grade Airplane PPG Paint ($110/ Gallon) in Benjamin Moore Blue. Benjamin Moore just announced it will the color of 2021! Extremely durable, high performance interior paint. It’s the same paint they use in high traffic, heavy use places like class rooms and airports. We wanted to be able to Airbnb it without any issues, so we tried to make this thing as durable as possible. We had the rear professionally changed to take off the 70’s light holder and replaced the tail lights with new LED lights to create a more sleek, modern design. We spent over $13,000 in interior and exterior materials and labor, and custom bumper design.

All of the plumbing and hot water heater were professionally replaced with Pecs Piping and a more efficient Hot water Heater.

The flooring is waterproof linoleum that is scratch and dent resistant. It’s in a beautiful, subtle Blonde Wide Plank Oak Chevron pattern.

The Cushions and Cushion covers are brand new, never been used. We chose a high performance stain and pill resistant material that wicks away stains from wine, berries, etc. The twin beds are memory foam. We didn’t buy them, but there super comfortable and fit perfectly.

Custom Solid Cherry Wood Butcher Counter Tops and Table. The Oven/Stove and Kitchen Sink are the original vintage fog green color. And a new Black Matte Kitchen Faucet.

And one of the coolest features is the Forced Air Electric Heater with the Faux Fireplace feature. This thing is so unbelievably cool, and very efficient. It is remote controlled and has over 15 different color combos. It runs off of Shore Power and heats the whole trailer up in a matter of minutes. But you also have the AC/Heater, so you have two options to heat.

Customized peal and stick wallpaper in the Bathroom from Portugal.

The lights are from an independent light designer based out of Austin, TX. The Bathroom is Solid Brass, so it will only Patina and look cooler with age. The light bulbs are efficient 12 V Edison light bulbs ordered from a specialty store.

Tires are good shape. Ready to go. We towed it from Colorado to New Mexico, back to CA with no problems. Really cool original aluminum moon shaped, rounded hubcaps.

Things you may want to improve/consider after buying
• Converting to solar
• There’s no Awning
• We haven’t tried the furnace, because we already had two heat sources. But in case you need heat off the grid, it might be something you want to have checked out.
• One of the small panels on the Heater/AC fell off. It doesn’t affect the unit, it’s just an aesthetic blemish.

We poured a lot of time, funds, and love into this thing, thinking we were going to keep it as an Airbnb. But we decided to go another route, so we are parting with this beauty. Would love to see it go to someone who enjoys her as much as we have!

Asking Price is $42,500

Send and receive payment safely.

Consider these tips in order to send or receive payment safely.

  • If an offer looks too good to be true, it probably is! Maintain a healthy skepticism.
  • Verify the Buyer or Seller’s identity. Do addresses and names match up in public records or directories? Even better is to meet the seller in person in a safe place.
  • Be cautious of an individual posing as an “agent” representing a buyer or seller, or when dealing with someone outside your country.
  • Do not make a purchase only from photos. A photo does not verify the existence of an item. See the item in person.
  • If using an escrow service for payment of the transaction, verify that it is a reliable service. Never go to an escrow service site via a link in an email. Always go directly to the site, by typing in the URL. Do not use an escrow service recommended by the seller.
  • Fraud deals may involve shipping, wire transfers, overpayment or cashiers checks. Unusual requests involving the transaction may be a signal of a potential scam.
  • Do not wire money for any transaction whether you are a buyer or seller without first verifying the identity of the person you are dealing with.
  • Do not wire money for any transaction that initially began with an overpayment or to pay a shipper or pick up agent.
  • If presented with an “invoice” from PayPal or other payment service, verify it is genuine.
  • Use your best judgment in all transactions.
  • Report suspected fraudulent activity to [email protected]

Recommendations For Buyers

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.

Recommendations For Buyers

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.

How to Report Fraud

File a report. File a report at 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.

Let us know about it. If you receive a suspicious email, report it to Trader Interactive immediately. Forward the email to [email protected] Do not change the subject line or send it as an attachment. Simply forward the suspicious email message to us. We will contact you if we need additional information.
