Dream of days spent in the quiet of nature with elegant accommodations that you cannot find anywhere else?

“La Vida” (the life, in Spanish), our Airstream Excella II was one of only 100 made in 1980 and spent its first few decades in Texas. The Excella was the top-end model for Airstream in its day. In 2016, La Vida was moved to Maine. Nearly everything has been refreshed or replaced over several years with professionals involved at every step of the way.

With the DC powered refrigerator, LED Lights, composting toilet, and expanded gray water waste tank capacity, this is the perfect set-up to spend extended time off grid with modern luxuries. Add solar and you’re ready for serious time away.

More renovation details are listed below.

We are selling La Vida as we are looking to downsize to an adventure set-up that can be towed by a smaller vehicle.

A recent professional assessment valued La Vida at ~$80,000 for insurance purposes and well over that amount was invested in the renovation. If requested, we will share the details of the assessment with serious buyers.

Serious inquires and offers only please. (Yes, we will negotiate!)
