Ultra-RARE 1984 Airstream 310 w/ rebuilt Isuzu turbo-diesel

We purchased this beauty from the original owner, who also happened to be the longtime president of the Vintage Airstream Association of America and kept meticulous records. While in good shape already, we gave it a full interior upgrade including a memory foam mattress, chef-sized sink, and more (see list below). This unit has the rare and reliable Isuzu six-cylinder turbo-diesel engine that is prized amongst collectors. For provenance, we have included a letter from the Director at Airstream to the previous owner dated February 8, 1994 stating “…you’ve got a rare one. We only built about five or six of them in 1984.”

There are less than 54,000 miles on the odometer and just 990 since the engine & transmissions were fully rebuilt by Husker Power Products. It also had a full rear end replacement and refit of chassis/cab components. Records for this work is included and we can provide service history back to 1983 for every piece of equipment on the rig. It is truly a piece of RV history with all the modern upgrades to be comfortable in 2022. These include:
– Bedroom TV on extending mount with x-box and two controllers.
– Memory foam queen size bed that lifts to provide storage and pump access.
– Propane Onan generator with just 188 hours and lines recently purged and inspected.
– Two a/c units that work great, as do all appliances, which represent a mixture of new and refurbished originals.
– The sink is chef-sized and all kitchen appliances work well.
– Bedroom windows have custom light blocking covers using Velcro.
– Bathroom upgraded to cedar walls to provide a nice scent all year.
– Custom propane barbecue grill built into one of the exterior compartments.
– Upgraded stereo with speakers throughout (including bedroom).
– Custom exterior shower head with pull chain. The interior shower was too small to be functional, so we built the outdoor shower and converted the interior shower space to storage space with a barn door.

Everyone knows that buffing Airstreams are an unwelcome regular cost, so the previous owner had this rig painted to match the Airstream metal color rather than buff out every year. It could easily be converted back to bare metal if preferred, but we frankly agree with the previous owner that this represents a far superior method. There is some minor body exterior damage to disclose. During transport, the trucking company did not properly secure the original sun visor and the wind damaged its brackets such that they had been removed (parts come with purchase). This also caused a moderate scratch on the right side, but since the previous owner converted to a painted body, these can be repaired by any body shop or Airstream specialist. If the unit does not sell quickly, we plan to have these minor blemishes fixed and relist for a higher price.
Per attached, total investment in the rebuild is at least $60,000. This is one of the rarest Airstream models out there and its provenance dating back to purchase makes it even more so. We intended to keep it forever, but now that we have brought it home to our new place in central Austin, we just do not have the room and recognize we will eventually have to sell. That being true, figured it would be best to do so when it was still basically a brand-new drivetrain from the radiator to the differential! Listing for $65,000 on the hope & expectation of a quick sale rather than dragging it out on an auction site.

Send and receive payment safely.

Consider these tips in order to send or receive payment safely.

  • If an offer looks too good to be true, it probably is! Maintain a healthy skepticism.
  • Verify the Buyer or Seller’s identity. Do addresses and names match up in public records or directories? Even better is to meet the seller in person in a safe place.
  • Be cautious of an individual posing as an “agent” representing a buyer or seller, or when dealing with someone outside your country.
  • Do not make a purchase only from photos. A photo does not verify the existence of an item. See the item in person.
  • If using an escrow service for payment of the transaction, verify that it is a reliable service. Never go to an escrow service site via a link in an email. Always go directly to the site, by typing in the URL. Do not use an escrow service recommended by the seller.
  • Fraud deals may involve shipping, wire transfers, overpayment or cashiers checks. Unusual requests involving the transaction may be a signal of a potential scam.
  • Do not wire money for any transaction whether you are a buyer or seller without first verifying the identity of the person you are dealing with.
  • Do not wire money for any transaction that initially began with an overpayment or to pay a shipper or pick up agent.
  • If presented with an “invoice” from PayPal or other payment service, verify it is genuine.
  • Use your best judgment in all transactions.
  • Report suspected fraudulent activity to [email protected]

Recommendations For Buyers

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.

Recommendations For Buyers

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.

How to Report Fraud

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.

Let us know about it. If you receive a suspicious email, report it to Trader Interactive immediately. Forward the email to [email protected] Do not change the subject line or send it as an attachment. Simply forward the suspicious email message to us. We will contact you if we need additional information.
