We are selling our completely refurbished 34′ 1984 Airstream Excella! Mid-ship twins, rear bath, and front daybed (twin). After-market heaters added to the dining area and bath and their own electrical panel as well. She has a 3-year-old Hensley hitch system for worry-free towing, waterproof flooring, storage galore under the twin beds, and a beautifully remodeled kitchen, bath with tub, shower, and new toilet, and living room. The kitchen has a two-burner gas stove and a microwave.
We have genuinely loved traveling with this rig but are stepping away from travel for family reasons. I was actually tearing up while cleaning and buffing her up just for you!
The air-conditioner was put on new just before we bought the unit in the Spring of 2018.
We have since replaced both power cords (in the front that plugs into your vehicle and the main power supply in the back) as well as 2 new deep-cycle batteries. We also had a new water pump installed in 2018.
The roof was completely sealed in the fall of 2018 and a backup camera installed as well. Additionally, we updated the tongue jack with a more powerful electric jack. We also had 4 new stabilizing jacks installed. (Many other small things were done during this repair visit and will of course be happy to share those with you)
In 2019, we had a WE Boost and a Fiamma Airstream Bike rack installed. The front-end underbelly was also updated.
In 2020-2021, we replaced the original exhaust fan in the bathroom with a Fantastic fan, replaced marker lights with LED, and because of a pop-up thunderstorm, replaced the 20′ curb-side awning (brand new). All holding tanks are original but have been inspected and after a small leak with the gray tank, Airstream technicians were able to repair and seal the gray holding tank. We did go ahead and have all fittings replaced and new support plates installed under the unit and a new sewer valve installed.
Regular maintenance was done during this trip such as hot-water heater service and test, air conditioner service and test, and stove vent was resealed to continue to prevent leaks. A newer backup camera was installed as the 2-year old one no longer worked.
We traveled quite a bit with this awesome unit and we are sad to let her go, but family changes require it.
I do think it’s important to know that we did not remodel this Airstream. We purchased it as you see it, but I have listed above all the improvements and repairs that we have done.
I am sure you have more specific questions, so please feel free to ask.

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.
