Sallie is a 1974 27’ Airstream International. She has been totally restored down to the frame. The restoration process was started in 2013 and was completed in 2017. She has been kept in the dry with exception of camping trips. All receipts of the restoration process have been kept in a binder down to the Olympic rivets that were replaced. All appliances were replaced; heater, stove, AC, convection microwave and Norcold refrigerator. The sofa was removed, restored and covered in leather. All of the cabinets were customed with solid maple millwork. The floor deck was replaced on the frame and marmoleum was installed. Waterproof Vinyl flooring was installed in 2020. Axels and brakes have been replaced. She also has Dish satellite TV and a Wi-Fi boost antenna on the roof to establish your own network from any Wi-Fi signal. The list of what has been done is too long to list. We are selling Sallie because we bought another Airstream. Sallie is very solid and a dream to pull. What needs repair? Nothing. There is a small 3” vertical tear in the canopy parallel to the stripes. If I did not list this, one may not even notice it. If I were to keep Sallie, what would I improve? I had planned to replace the factory interior lights with small LED pot lights. The original lights are nice and really add to the vintage look. They have LED bulbs and are nice and bright. I would also replace the 3 roof fans with Fantastic fans. I also wanted to polish Sallie to a mirror finish but my wife preferred the vintage look. Sallie is a real head turner.

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.
