Frame off restoration of a 1974 Airstream Overlander 27′
I purchased this airstream one year ago from Kentucky, which I then titled in Michigan. I purchased it from the gentleman who performed the frame off restoration. He is a welder and builder by trade and did a beautiful job.
This is basically a brand new unit that I have only used six times and due to life circumstances, I have decided to sell it and live this dream another day. I have listed the main features below, but feel free to message me with more questions. Serious inquiries only. I am not desperate to sell and will continue to use it throughout the summer until the right buyer comes along.
– FRAME: sandblasted, coated and painted with rust proofer, reinforced in the front and rear, multiple new outriggers and welded with all new rear hold down plates, designed to never have rear end leaks again, hitch added to haul bikes or extra gear.
– Mid bath conversion with open floor plan and all new custom cabinets and furniture.
– New upgraded dexter axles with lift kit for more clearance, new brakes, wiring, aluminum wheels and tires.
– New subfloor throughout with new fabricated metal wheel wells.
– All windows were removed, cleaned and new seals installed…including vista windows, new rock guard.
– New exterior LED light conversion.
– New grey tank with custom mounts for mid bath, along with new plumbing and modern dump valve. Black tank was removed due to adding an easy to use cassette toilet that comes with thetford curve.
– New pex water lines throughout.
– New on demand propane water heater.
– Updated electric and battery along with new modern 30amp plug on exterior.
– Customs cabinets and countertop with residential fixtures and residential farm sink, under cabinet lighting that changes color with remote.
– Flat screen TV with new cable and outlets.
– New propane cooktop, multi use microwave/air fryer/convection.
– New electric refrigerator
– Exterior propane grill connector.
– New A/C and 3 new Maxxair vents with built in LED lights.
– Luxury vinyl plank herringbone floor.
– New residential long queen size memory foam mattress in rear, twin XL memory foam sleeper sofa in the front.
– Exterior is in great condition, has white rubber roof coating, it has been stripped of clear coat so its ready to be polished or leave natural aluminum patina.
– This Airstream pulls like a dream and I barely knew I was towing anything with my 1500 GMC Sierra.
– All decor goes with the camper.
– No known water leaks
– Note worthy: This airstream is set up for and has the connections to install a water tank and pump. It currently does not have one. You can still get water from the exterior water connection if the place you stay at provides water to your site. I had a dealer quote a 20 gallon tank and pump installed for $1500 or if you are handy, you can do it yourself for around $700. One small dent on rear tail light. Heat comes by the way of a portable inferred heater, which keeps it very warm on cool nights.
– This camper is not perfect, but it is very close especially for a 1974 Airstream.

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.
