We are selling our well-loved and maintained 2012 Airstream international Signature 27FB with all the necessary upgrades to camp ideally on and off-grid. We’re in Boulder, CO and asking $72,000.
Some say (and we agree) that the 27FB is the best floor plan from Airstream because of its layout and panoramic windows out of the back dinette. We found that there’s nothing better than enjoying the view from the dinette when backing into a scenic campsite.
* Queen front bedroom
* Taupe Ultra Leather and Wenge decor
* Second A/C with 50 amp service
* Window awning package
* 600W Solar, 300ah AGM batteries
* Integrated Weboost cell booster
We’ve done the most important upgrades to make dry camping (boondocking) as comfortable as possible for our family.
I’ve included the original spec sheet with factory equipment and options as a photo.
Details on the upgrades
* 600-watt solar with 300ah of battery power
* Six 100 watts solar panels
* Two 300 amp hour Lifeline 6v AGM batteries (GPL-6CT) in sequence to give you 300ah total.
* Installed professionally by Marv Braun of Precision RV
* Boondocker 4-stage converter to keep batteries charged and optimally equalized when plugged into shore power.
* Weboost RV cell booster with two separate antennas (omni-directional and directional.) Mounted to deployable TV antenna for maximum height.
* Ford Super Duty trailer mounted camera and TPMS system. Integrates seamlessly on Ford super duties model years 2017-2022 (more info)
* Fantastic vent cover which allows you to keep the vent open while driving and during rain.
* Upgraded to Goodyear Endurance tires about 8k miles ago. This is Airstream’s preferred factory tire now for this model.
Doing the solar upgrades was a game changer and we haven’t needed a generator since. We’re able to watch movies, charge our devices and run the furnace all night. I’ve never seen the batteries deplete to less than 70%. In full sun, the batteries replenish by noon the next morning.
We haven’t encountered major issues. I’ve been on top of fixing little things such as the occasional interior pop-rivet, hinge replacement, screw-tightening, and so on. The usual items a house on wheels needs looking after.
Cosmetically, the outside is above average for this model year. There is a dent from a branch on rear quarter panel and a few rock dents on front, mostly on the replaceable rock guards. Again, totally normal for an Airstream.
We have always stored under sheltered storage in Boulder Colorado on a concrete pad. Protected from sun, rain, hail, and snow has allowed her to stay in above average condition.
We are Airstreamers for life and thought we’d keep this unit through retirement and thus have treated her as such. However, now that two of our three daughters are teenagers, we’d like to give them a bit more dedicated bedroom space by getting a Flying Cloud bunk. We think one day, we’ll go back to this floorplan as it’s still our favorite layout.
I estimate we have put about 15k miles based on the trailer odometer from my Super Duty and before my F-150. Selling the trailer with the original Equalizer hitch. I have both a 2” and 2.5” shank to choose from.
P.S. My spouse would like to keep the blanket and pillows. We still have the unused Airstream bed covering to put in its place.
