REDUCED TO $50,000 from $65,000! Must sell!!
This is Calamity Jane! She is a beauty! She has 60,061 original miles (approx.). She is 20 feet long and boasts a 454 Chevy engine. She sounds really cool! Whenever we take her out, everyone wants to see her. We have decided to sell her and build a guest house. We are now asking $50,000 OBO.
The inside was completely redone, keeping most of the original cabinets. The couch/bed was redone and opens to a queen size. The bucket seats were reupholstered as well. New flooring, new carpeting. The bathroom shower was redone, but the original wallpaper was kept and looks fabulous. The bathroom has a new modern sink and a new toilet. The kitchen cabinet is new, with a modern sink, and a new two burner propane stove top. A new furnace was installed, water heater, new refridgerator and AC. The original Onan generator was removed as it did not work and we could not find anyone to work on it. We were going to replace it with a Honda portable. Of course this means she is also 300 lbs. lighter!
Also, there is all new wiring, new window channels, and new window shades and curtains throughout.
The waste pipes and valves were replaced as well.
The engine runs great. She had a complete checkup with new hoses, a new radiator, fuel injection installed, tune up, new brakes, new tires (6 and a spare). We have the original owners manual, along with receipts from the restoration and engine work. The paint on the outside is original, with some touchups that look great.
Of course you can change her name to whatever suites you in your travels! We have her registered with Airstream as Calamity Jane.

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.
