This Classic is a gem inside and out. We are the 3rd owners, named it Providence, and have enjoyed it immensely since 2009. My wife wants a Serenity with a dinette; what can I say but ok.
Providence has been covered throughout its life, except when camping. The exterior is in excellent condition, as the photos attest. Having been covered, the roof is in excellent condition, has always been kept sealed, and has never leaked. The original clear coat is in great shape over 99% of the skin. Where minor, isolated corrosion has started at trim attachments or skin edges we’ve kept on top of it, quickly controlled it, and reapplied clear coat. Exterior storage closets are carpeted and in great condition.
Providence has extra-capacity twin aluminum propane tanks for long trips between fill-ups. It tows exceptionally well and very safely with a 3-yr. old reconditioned Hensley Swift Arrow and power disc brakes. It has premium 16″ wheels in great condition, with load class E tires having lots of tread and internal pressure/temperature sensors.
In the interior, the color scheme speaks for itself; lots of personality and very unique. The red leather couch makes into a double bed. The bright green painted walls “pop”. The checkered red and light beige floor is cheery. The typical Airstream Classic wood colors blend well with the red and green.
All throughout there’s lots of closet and storage space. For sound, a premium CD/DVD/AM-FM stereo sound system delivers a surround sound feel, with adjustable quality Sony speakers in the living area and bedroom. Though my wife and I are movie buffs but not TV watchers, the speakers and DVD are wired to the TV-mount area for TV enjoyment with stereo sound.
The propane stove/oven, propane/electric refrigerator/freezer, and electric microwave are in great condition. The kitchen counters are Corian and the double kitchen sink is stainless. The water, sewer, HVAC, propane, and electrical (30-amp) utilities work very well. The single a/c is on a separate electrical breaker so it works without tripping even on hot summer days. Heat with either the heat pump or propane furnace.
Original owner’s manual and maintenance records are available.
Over the years, my wife and I have had so much fun in Providence across Texas, along the Blue Ridge Parkway, at national parks in the Pacific Northwest, and all through west Canada. Take it home and make your own wonderful memories for many years to come; it’s a quality rig with a unique feel.
