We give you “Essie” our 1975 Landyacht Airstream, 31 foot trailer. Our trailer has undergone a full shell off restoration conducted by Salt Lake Airstream and custom interior build by Mountain Modern Airstream in Bend, Oregon. Essie is a perfect fit for a comfy home away from home, a guest house for friends and family, or a trusted escape in these wild covid times.
We gutted the trailer down to its shell and Airstream of Salt Lake City de-rivited the shell and redid the trailer, bellypan, subfloor, new axles, trailer brakes and grey water tank. Once we received the solid platform to build off of we employed Mountain Modern Airstream out of Bend, Oregon, https://www.mtnmodernairstream.com/ to design and build out a totally modern interior. We wanted it to be a cozy hideaway for our family, friends, kids, and our parents. Mountain Modern designed and fabricated the entire inside, new electrical, insulation, new interior skins with custom end caps, custom cabinets and counters. To get a feel for the inside, go to Mountain Modern Airstream and under projects click on “Essie” and you can see how stunning this trailer is.

Now that we are back in TX we no longer have a great spot for Essie and its time for her to go to a new home. This trailer would make a great hideaway getaway if you have a bit of land or a lot near a lake. It could also make a unique Airbnb or rental if you wanted to commercialize its awesomeness. Or it can be really nice overflow housing for when friends come to visit. We spent about 3 years in total getting Essie to where she is now and we are looking forward to seeing our Essie find a new home and a new family to adventure with.

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.
File a report. File a report at www.ic3.gov 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.
