We’re selling our 2004 25’ Airstream International CCD (designed by architect Christopher C. Dean of San Francisco). With their stylish, functional, and colorful interior, the CCDs are highly sought after by Airstream lovers. The interior, which sleeps six, features a rear corner double bed, front sofa and center dinette. The kitchen is well equipped with a 3-burner gas range and oven, built-in microwave, and refrigerator. The rear corner bathroom has a shower and toilet with separate vanity. All recessed lights have been upgraded to LED. The original skylight was upgraded with the installation of a top-of-the-line Maxim skylight. The AC works fine, as does the furnace and water heater.
The modern black and white cabinets accentuate the sleek modern look found only in the International CCD series. The camper also comes with a built-in stereo including Sony CD player and four speakers, Bose DVD player, Harmon Karden amplifier and Samsung TV. The interior also has plenty of well-designed storage spaces and I’ve made a couple of improvements to make the storage even more user friendly.
The exterior includes the standard ZipDee awning, in date (and full) LP tanks, power cord, water hose, awning and stabilizer cranks, and wheel chocks. I also added LED lights along the full length of the awning. This camper has always been in covered storage when not on the road and has had the added benefit of no kids, no smokers, and no pets.
Here’s the short list of minor improvements and maintenance items that the new owner might want to consider in the future. The sealant around the AC should probably be looked at and replaced/reconditioned (I did the fans and skylight curb when I replaced the skylight). Although it consists of premium components, the sound system could stand an upgrade. I’m not a techie or audiophile so we use a simple Bluetooth speaker most of the time.
We’ve bought a newer Airstream so we need to pass this one on.

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.
