The time has come to sell our beloved 1978 Airstream Sovereign to make way for a new adventure vehicle.
We did a complete shell off renovation in 2018 and then traveled throughout the US for a year before returning to our hometown of Portland, OR where it has sat virtually unused other than the occasional guest for the last 2 years.
Quite literally, every single inch of this Airstream has been updated. The only 3 things I reused or repurposed were the frame, shell and 8 track stereo system.

**this Airstream was appraised by Polk Associates on 8/5/2021 for $122,500. Jim Polk is very well respected within the airstream community and his appraisals are commonly accepted by major financial institutions and insurance companies.

Most of the renovation was documented on our instagram account: @airstreamabode
In addition to this I have hundreds and hundreds of pictures documenting the renovation that I can share with prospective buyers

We designed this airstream to comfortably accommodate our family of 4. In addition to the 4 of us, the dinette converts into a large bed to accommodate guests. We have comfortably had 7 people sleep in the airstream.

Layout Features:
-Front dinette with professionally upholstered cushions. Table drops down and back cushions go over table to create a large bed for guests. All benches in the dinette lift up with gas shocks for storage underneath.
-Spacious kitchen with custom cabinetry, large 30” white quartz sink with Delta Trinsic gold faucet, roomy under-counter fridge/freezer, propane oven and 3 burner stove
-Large custom pantry with tons of storage and a dedicated drawer for garbage/recycling
-Spa like side bath with porcelain penny tile floor and walls, composting toilet and a white porcelain sink with Delta Trinsic gold faucet
-Rear queen bed with custom built in bookshelf and loads of storage space under bed. Bed lifts up with ease with the help of gas shocks.
-Side bunks (30×75” each) with storage cubbies underneath for toys and such. Each bunk has a 110v outlet and 5 usb outlets
