Reason for selling: We have enjoyed the life of Vintage Airstreaming in this unit these last few years. Repairs have been minimal. Eye-catching campers get a lot of attention making traveling and camping lots of fun. Next year we plan to go full time and are purchasing a new 30’ Airstream.
A polished Airstream surface looks good for about 8 years but can keep its shine longer if stored under covered and given a full touch up in year 4 or 5. This unit is at that point now. For the do-it-yourself owner, I recommend a Buff Pro drum polisher, clyclo random orbital polisher, disk polisher and Nuivte products.
This unit has minor shell ware and damage – very minor.
Tambor cabinet doors and storage areas are original. Good condition/additional vintage original parts included.
Roof of this unit has white Kool-seal applied in 2018.
September 2021, we had the 5 front aluminum roof panels professionally replaced along with the two wing windows. These panels need to be polished to match. Professional polishing referrals can be recommended for Southeast region.
Original windows are double pane. With age the shading material crinkles and bubbles. I have ordered 5 new windows from Airstream. If you purchase as listed before these custom ordered windows are shipped, I will credit the purchase by $2,000. Expected deliver date is February 2023 from Airstream Jackson Center.
All components of this unit are operational.

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.
