UPDATE – After three weeks of countless inquiries, pics, video calls and three “I’ll buy it,” and/or “I am driving down tomorrow,” we are exhausted with the FB and AirForums communities…
Movers are coming and this project must find a new home. Everything in the ad is 100% accurate and not a scam.
Make an offer…get a deal, a really good deal.
Help! Job Change forces immediate sale of an in process renovation our 1978 31′ Sovereign International.
Impending cross country move, well before I am ready with the Airstream, is forcing me to part ways with my project.
Meticulously deconstructed and inventoried fully intact rig ready for you to take over. I have completed all 16 windows with commercial tint and total rebuild from Ian Miller Miller Garage and Robert Vintage Trailer Gaskets tutorials, which was a huge project. Need to still install the Stack, Vistas amp; Front they are all done. All exterior lights have been renovated and converted to LED from the Vintage Trailer Supply kits taillights look wonderful. Main door latch and all keys, rebuilt and work great.
All the molding, rub rails, skins, screens and finishes are intact. Although the front window rock guard screen was cracked, I have all the hardware. No exterior dents or significant scratches/scarring on the rig.
Frame looks good, tires and axels are safe and useable towed fine for me, but I was planning new ($1,700) from Colin Hyde with Dexter.
If you need help, I have a build plan and full, price tiered, estimates for the frame, shell-off and below deck work plumbing and electric stubout from Greg Penner at Vintage Base Camp in Louisville. Greg can do a little, or everything. I’ve been onsite to his shop and his work is wonderful.
I was planning the shell off and floor in June and then tackling the electric solar, battery, AC etc., onto skins and interior retrofit in the fall.
Since I m done with Airstream for now and moving to NorCal to a much smaller house, you get everything: New Water heater and pump, DeWalt polisher, multiple Zephr wheels and clay, rivets, clecos and tools, all exterior seals, tons of consumables, sealants, full face respirator and suits and more. Heck, you can even have the bench grinder it all has to go (soon).
For reference, including the purchase, I’ve got at least 13K in the project, but we are just looking for fair, serious, offers to get it moved along. Clear title in hand.
It has to go, so don’t be shy if you are looking for this kind of project…
PM me for more a ton of pictures, details, or any other questions you may have.
Thanks for looking.

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.
